Painting a background to photograph fresh flowers against

Here's what I have for this project:
A blue and white pitcher given to me by a good friend
A bouquet of carnations given to me by my sister in law
A canvas panel from another friend
Old, natural sponges
An assortment of acrylic paints in shades of red, ochre, and black

I think this will work out well as I attempt to build a finish that will resemble the side of a barn.

I've stopped for tonight to let the first layers dry but plan to get back to it at first light tomorrow.

I arranged the flowers and we shot this the next day.
I'm back at work painting the background to look more like old barn wood.
