Inktober, 10 Rosewood Table


Quick sketch while working in the finish room today,
of a lovely carved decorative
*gads you know when you can’t find the right word and it is in your brain
and you know it will come to you days after you publish the post???*

thingy-ma-bob on a Rosewood Table.
The thingy-ma-bob, which sits under the table as part of the base,
had huge chips off the many petals and leaves.
The chipped parts were replaced with new carvings,
and properly finished in a traditional manner that matched the historic finish.

I sketched in the very soluble Diamine Chocolate,
and then touched the lines with a wet brush.
I filled my pen and didn’t have the ink snug, and it blobbed!
