Developing a new wooden box piece
On Saturday at the shop I was quite busy to start the day and then things went very quiet for most of the afternoon. I continued a new box project on a hexagonal chest. The aim to share 7 different views of Swanage Bay in so different conditions from the vantage point of our flat that I share on the Andy.knill Instagram account daily.
I had started the other day by choosing which six window views I would use for the box sides and started to draw the line drawing in pigment fineliner of the framing of the view. This meant drawing the same view 6 times, there was still differences with the positioning of elements over the bay from us working out slightly differently.
The scenes included the use of gel pens for white elements and a varied palette using the ProMarkers for the scene as conditions changed and the Posca markers not offering enough variety of colours.
Three sides to go this week and then choosing a scene from the front window for the box top. It’s nice to link the photos and daily posts to show the variation of weather and views that we get in the bay which I find fascinating now having enjoyed this view for the last 15 months.<div class='sharedaddy sd-block sd-like jetpack-likes-widget-wrapper jetpack-likes-widget-unloaded' id='like-post-wrapper-123416164-6997-6426de1e94df3' data-src='https://widgets.wp.com/likes/#blog_id=123416164&post_id=6997&origin=andyknillart.com&obj_id=123416164-6997-6426de1e94df3' data-name='like-post-frame-123416164-6997-6426de1e94df3' data-title='Like or Reblog'><h3 class="sd-title">Like this:</h3><div class='likes-widget-placeholder post-likes-widget-placeholder' style='height: 55px;'><span class='button'><span>Like</span></span> <span class="loading">Loading...</span></div><span class='sd-text-color'></span><a class='sd-link-color'></a></div>
