Framed pen and ink over gesso #2

A quick share today of the second of my pen and ink over gesso media boards which I have mounted in a deep Ikea frame but reversed it to look more like a shadow box. If you missed the first one you can see it here.


Again I have used a Tando Creative media board .....


.... and black sharpie pen ...


.... with DecoArt media acrylics to give me the light colour wash.





I really like the quirkiess of putting the art in back to front , it really works for me.



Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful week.

hugs Brenda xxx

I really enjoy your pen and ink drawings; this will look great paired with your other. I think you're onto something with this backwards framing! You trendsetter,you! Big hugs!

I love what I call "Happy Pinterestings"- that is when I come across a fantastic piece of art, and I just have to find the artist. Your work is truly beautiful!
