My entry was inspired by the work of George R.R. Martin's book series "A Song of Fire and Ice" popularized via the HBO show Game of Thrones. I used two halves of a broken skate deck to replicate the map from the bookends of the continent of Westeros and its Seven Kingdoms. Detail packed into the landscape including landmarks such as The Wall and the Twins. Also their are icons specific to the major families like medieval coats of arms called House Crests which dot my landscape near the castles of import. Process photos to come...
Enjoying the Magic of the FA Cup and resumption of Champs League footy in the midweek. In Jamaica I talked world cup qualifiers with anyone who'd listen and indeed the Reggae Boys took points off Mexico with a draw in the Azteca. Having almost as much fun editing footage from that trip on the tablet with the intuitive iMovie app. Enjoy your weekend along with this watercolor, my current poster project. Cheers.
Open forum on placement of type; below with a cloud background akin to Tolkien's original, or something new? Bad weather makes little sunshine for watercolors of late. Painting the crops, glens and homes of Hobbiton brightened my day and also hopefully your mood is lifted. A goal of mine was to push a more varied palette than Tolkien, often frugal, may have allowed himself due to budget.
