Norwich artist Sandra Rowney has recently set up a garden studio and has been experimenting painting the walls. Here's what she says: " The walls were painted in a soft sheen emulsion and have an 'orange peel' finish made with a roller. It tries to repel watery acrylic paint and gives some wonderful effects. Painting on the vertical surface is a challenge but if you work the paint and catch the drips with a rag it can dry as it hits a lower edge and create shadowed edges.  I've used my sketching pen and ink first to whizz around the edges of real leaves from the garden writing the name nearby to learn the plant in the process. " We'd love to see other shedworkers' interior decor. Please do get in touch with your own examples. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Friday posts are sponsored by Extraspace, the flat-packed, man-portable expandable garden building experts.
