I know this is an older post so forgive me for posting late. I haven't had alot of time lately to get in here and kick the tires and check the oil. I have been traveling extensively with my wife as she goes from assignment to assignment. The only one I didn't go on with her was the last one when she went to Mississippi and Tennessee. So since I have a short break I have been going through the posts trying to play catch up.
I like this technique very much and you did an excellent job achieving the aged painted look.
You couldn't have picked a better subject either, I love old windmills. I'd love to see you try this on the old standards, ( Old barns, Broken Down Buckboard, Old Rusty Car in Field )....ect...ect.
Keep posting these if you would, I'd love to see what you come up with.
Have a great day.
