The project I'm working on at the moment is a picture of a rusty boat moored near Letterfrack in Connemara. I'm actually working only on a detail of its hull, just exploring the textures. I'm at the stage where I'm having fun trying out different techniques. Here are some samples:

The original picture:

Spattering, printing with sponge & watercolour paper, lines, sand paper:

Cling-film effect (this is great fun: apply paint to paper, then put cling-film on top, let it dry, remove cling-film - you never know what shapes will come out of it):

CD used for applying paint to paper (put paint on printable CD, then apply to paper, twisting and turning to smear the paint all over):
