Day 36 The International Scott Centenary Expedition commemorative map

Worked on the bottom  scroll today and over ‘The International Scott Centenary Expedition’ writing, which I wanted to blur a little in places in an attempt to age it just a little. I wanted it to be darker than the top scroll to work with the lighting but also to anchor the picture at the bottom left and right hand sides.

Day 36

I think though that now I need to rework the top scroll a little to give it a little more realism and depth, but I don’t want it as dark as the one I have just completed.

I have included a close up of the scroll work here.

I also did some research during my lunch. I am now contemplating the colour more and so began exploring  colours in the Antarctic. I will share all this information, including the answer to why some icebergs are turquoise blue in a day or so…

Rope and more rope tomorrow and maybe a play around with some killer whales.

  1. One does hope one is talking metaphorically re orca! Reading one’s posts one knows that one has a tendency to be thorough! Ok – checked the aquarium – no killers! They are not cute – they are Killer whales for a reason – they are very effective! They are very beautiful but deadly – David Attenborough (no, not him, Robert Browning maybe, but you know what I mean) – please, talk some sense into her. I know what you’re thinking… you want to draw them in the flesh. Get out there and sit in a piece of rubber and… I saw David Attenborough’s Frozen Planet! Nooo! They were lucky or were they? Come to think on it they cut the sequence after the first swell – so who knows what really happened. Actually, Cheri, go for it. An opportunity is a quantum leap!
