Doll's House painting in progress

Sometimes I make paintings that are three dimensional, and that means the back and sides of the picture get the same attention as the front. The house section is linen, glued onto MDF with rabbit skin glue. The doors are MDF, but they are conected to the house with real hinges, which allows them to open and close. As the images explain, I made a rough model of a doll's house and fitted it with miniature furniture as a guide to painting the picture.
