 :thankyou: Val, Mea and Annie. That was the finished product lol. Yes Annie I agree, I much prefer wood, but I had to try it. I am working on another project of an old cottage in town here. I captured it with my phone on the dog walk yesterday at sunrise. I need to get out more and find new subjects as I have a huge board waiting for me. It is approx. 76” x 48”. I am a bit overwhelmed by the thought of it, but then I normally am until I make the first burn.

 :thankyou: Mea and Val. The cottage is on a 20” x 16” board. I am on the hunt for a subject for the big one. I might even have to combine a few photos to find it.

I took a photo of this on my dog walk. These days I seem to do most of my transfers using the grid method rather than tracing. It saves on ink and paper.

I am making the most of the cooler temperatures. I will not be opening this weekend, we have 40C plus coming up.

Oh Zilpa I love South Australia, but  I don't envy you in summer time, the hot weather  :sweat: there would be unbearable for me.

I am naming this Painters’ Cottage because it actually belongs to the local painter. I hope to finish burning this week and colour next week. The grass is taking the longest.

Another beauty, plus doing this technique in the Australian summer must make it twice as hard.  :clap: :clap:

 :thankyou: Teresa It is not too bad at the moment, it was a cool day today. The weather is all topsy tervey at the moment. It is the humidity that we are having that does me in. That is new here in SA. It has always been a dry heat which iseasier to cope with. If it is too hot, I draw and plan my next one.
