Painting on planks
One fine morning, as i just woke up and checked my phone, I saw a notification from inbox. I don't usually have many emails from there so i was wondering what is it about. I was contacted by a client and she have two wooden planks lying around and asked if i was interested to paint them with my lettering styles. She wanted to hang the wooden planks in her home with her favorite quotes. I don't see a reason why not to accept this job?! I immediately accepted the job and i was so excited. After arranging for her to send those to my place, I unpacked them and this is how the planks looked like:
She gave me a couple of quotes and i go ahead and sketch them on paper just to see how i want the composition to look like.
I had a couple go at the sketches and then proceed with drawing on the wooden plank.
After making some minor changes to the letters, i'm quite satisfied with the composition, and then i decided to paint them. I used Dr. Ph. Martin's Pen-White ink. They paint really well on different kind of surfaces. So i decided to use that ink and started painting them.
It started to look really good. I was so happy how it look like. After waiting for it to dry, i did a couple of touchups and then they are packed and sent back to her. She was really happy of how it turned up. And i'm happy too!
Here's the final pic taken downstairs my house with my wife as a model:
