A 5 minute drawing to describe two thousand years. Watercolour on a watercolour Moleskine
Merry Christmas, Bob.
And to you my friend
Beautiful. I like your description also. Did you use frisket for the star and the rays? It looks great.
Hi Susan. Yes I used frisket (I believe this is the same as masking fluid) but the rays were drawn with white ink. I don’t know if you saw my comment on one of Rob Carey’s posts (Dec 4th). I gave him a flickr photo which show the star I used as a reference (this was taken last year in my house)http://www.flickr.com/photos/28475994@N00/3083243664/
and I added details of a website to download templates for making the stars
You should try your own. All you need is strong/quick setting glue and lots of patience.
A happy Christmas to you and yours, Susan. Thank you for sharing many drawings and for commenting on many of my posts this year.
I’ve never even heard of white ink but it looks great. It’s nice that you have this sort of lonely house and so the star kind of jumps out at you.
Thanks Sophie. Winsor & Newton do a range of drawing inks including white. Have a Happy Christmas
Very nice, Bob- a great little piece.
Beautiful tones, lively composition. I’ll have to get me the white ink.
Well I think this describes 2000 years very well!
Fast and simple drawings have such an attractive quality about them.
Thanks everyone. May you all have an enjoyable and peacful Christmas
This is so peaceful! Thank you and Merry Christmas, Bob! Thank you for all the comments you post to everyone, including me, on this site.
