This is a work in progress that should be completed quite slowly. There is a large number of detailing aspects that are quite time consuming. I've chosen this particular forum since it seems to move quite slowly and fits in with the Inspirational aspect of the work. My grandson is very keen with regards to the Christian faith and has just purchased a new bible. I volunteered to make a bible cover to carry his new bible to church every week.
I'm showing work that I had painted on my lunch bucket from a painting that was in a book which was doing the illustration for this book from the scriptures. The work is quite detailed and fits into the New Testament portion in Matthew, Mark, and Luke and goes directly to the theme of the passages quoted. Matt. 27:32; Mark 15:21; and Luke 23:26 which all write of this peculiar incident on the way to Calvary, outside the city of Jerusalem. The bible cover will be painted similarly to fit the size of the outside cover.
While it may be slow and tedious, it will be detailed in each phase to keep interest in the progress.
This first presentation is from the work on the side of my lunch bucket which was painted over acrylic (white) and then painted with acrylic artist's paint and then sealed with a clear coat of acrylic. The work on the book cover will not be able to put all of that work in due to the size of the book cover compared to the lunch bucket. This first piece will be my acrylic work on the lunch bucket to be used for the work on the leather book cover. The original may be a bit awkward to see all the details.
