The words of the shipping forecast - in particular the list of sea areas - are one of my favourite subjects to return to. It's been a while since I've done a shipping forecast piece, so it was a realy pleasure to be be asked by someone very special to do a piece for her. Every decision was left to me, except for a rough guide on the size. It's given me some challenges (see previous posts) but now it's all complete and in a frame, ready for deliver, it's looking alright!
The finished piece is 60cm x 80cm so quite large. The hardest bit for me was the title - they're done with a brush which is less comfortable for me that a pen.... I also made the mistake of leaving them until last, so the pressure to not mess up was immense!
