I’ve completed the painting of the pages for my Book of Hours. It’s looks a little Disney-ish to me, and the flowers and leaves aren’t very realistically shaded. But I have to keep reminding myself that I really don’t know much about watercolor, and this was not supposed to be such an intensive project. It was supposed to be done in a couple hours not a few weeks.
Here are some pictures. One of the whole and some close-ups. What comes next is lettering my haiku prayers onto each page. Then I need to make a cover for the book and score the accordion folds in place and put the whole thing together. I doubt I’ll manage that all this week, but maybe by the end of next week.
Oops! I haven’t used wordpress in a while and they’ve changed a lot of the ways you post photos and stuff so I just accidentally posted a picture on a different posting. I’ll see if I can get them all on this post now.
