Painting the main mast

When the ochre had dried , I glued with white glue the sub parts of the construction . After masking the appropriate areas , I painted  them black . I used oil colour of Winsor & Newton  No 24 . After research on the shade of ochre , I decided to mix the Winsor's numbers 44 and 8 , until to get the right shade according to the available photos . 

Two days later , I wiped the colour with a clean brush , to illustrate the coated  wood .

A week later , was sprayed matt varnish.
