NIGHT 160 – THE STORY OF ALI IBN BAKKAR AND SHAMS AL NAHAR

Shell gold + steady hand + my specially designed Rocks brush – tripod = straight gold line with camera shake and blur in video at the end

Best I could do, I see I need an actual tripod and not just my other hand 🖐 ! Concentrating on looking at line in real life and not through phone… wonder how other people get round this

You get the idea – I created my Rocks brush to hold a lot of paint while keeping its fine point so no need to re-dip mid-line and can go on till the end of the line. You can see the blob of paint in the video being sucked into the paper, the brush is doing this work automatically, by capillary action.

NIGHT 159 – THE STORY OF ALI IBN BAKKAR AND SHAMS AL NAHAR

Willow Window almost done, just waiting to add the gold sharafeh extensions. The idea is that the destination window is like a page from an Islamic manuscript, and this is the crown topping taj of the window-page.

NIGHT 158 – THE STORY OF ALI IBN BAKKAR AND SHAMS AL NAHAR

Doing faded shades with my Water brush

The Water brush is specially designed to keep its sharp pointed tip to get into all the smallest corners while simultaneously being able to hold a lot of paint in the body, so making it ideal for miniature details as well as contemporary watercolour techniques
