More clock



I have completed the painting of the clock face that I was working on a few days ago.  I've drawn in the numbers for the face and now need to drill a hole for the mechanism and insert that and it should be ready to tick.

Its whimsical and fun, done in layers of inks and watercolour on a piece of pine which was not primed, so the wood grain shows through.  Its been sprayed with several coats of varnish to seal it. I will experiment with other offcuts of wood that are around the property and I have my eye on a nice piece of natural slate that I found too.

So many ideas, so little time...

I like the idea of keeping the clock confined to the sun face and not the entire piece. Great addition to your studio(?) wall.:) Out of curiosity, how big is this?

Yes, this will go in the studio. I wanted a smaller clock face not the full circle.

Its about 8 inches in diameter.

This is beautiful, Jeanette! You should make more and sell them on Etsy...hint, hint.
