OK . . here's the damned watch!! LOL
This is about another 3 hours work . . . . The face presented a few problems as I needed to do a thin underpainting over which I was to put in the numbers on the watch face. Since the underpainting was going to cover up my form lines I had to make extra marks outside the watch area which I could later use to draw lines pointing to the centre in order to get it down. The entire face was done with a cotton bud with the outline of the elipse of the inner stop watch being the paper showing through. A small highlight to catch the upper edge of this inner stop watch is shown . .dunno if you can see that.
The watch numbers are actually Roman Numerals . . I knew I only had one shot at them coz I didn't want to be playin' in thick pastel to get these down. I filed down a pastel to a FLAT end so I cold use an edge and then whammo . . I was over the moon that I got it first time!! . . phew . . bit nervy doing that bit!! LOL . . the length of the numbers was guessed as the base of the numbers themselves also form an elipse . .that clear?? s'pose not.
The rest of the watch was then pretty easy using the same colours I've been using for the chain.
Have yet to put the crack in the glass but hopefully that'll go as smoothly as the rest of the face.
On the home stretch now!!
Sorry about the photo . .it's late and so I did it "hand held" under a tungsten lamp!
It's now 1:30am . .I'm off to bed!!
