|WIP 4 - burning complete|
|WIP 3 - flower #2 (on the right) finished|
The leaves kind of 'wrap' over the edge to the right. It was tricky to burn these lines since the surface is curved. ^^; Something different and fun.
I'm done for the day. I'll get my watercolor out tomorrow and give transparent color - hoping for red and pink - to the blooms. ^_^ And once that's done, I'll take better pics during daylight hours in a brighter room.
UPDATE (April 24, 2015) - Finished giving the two blooms tints of watercolor. I like the way it came out. This is just a quick snapshot in poor light as it is past 6:30 pm and sun is way low in the western sky. I'll take a better pic during the mid day in indirect sunlight (That is... if we don't get hit by a storm tomorrow. ^^; *fingers crossed* ) This is only my second wood burn project and the first one that I colored. I think it's fun to add color, although I love the look of burned lines on wood the way it is very much. I've worked some more on the colors after I took this photo, so the final image is going to be a little different. ^_^ As an Asian, I grew up looking at drawings of peonies and chrysanthemums. So this piece feels a little nostalgic - strangely enough, considering I just finished it.
