President Emmental pack

‘President’ Emmental  © Peter Gander
Another small square painting for one of Fiona’s Family Mosaics. Each small square of the print reflects a particular interest of the person or family involved and a small painting like this looks far better than a ‘pack shot’. Drawn with a dip or ‘scratch’ pen, I allowed the (Rotring) ink to dry before adding watercolour, as it’s resistant to water only when dry. The dip pen gives a lovely, variable line like no other. The coloured shadow was painted wet-into-wet. Ink and Winsor & Newton watercolour on Daler-Rowney 300gsm rough paper.

    I should have said 'grate!' really...

  3. Very good. If a little 'cheesy' :-)

    Very good! So much better than the picture I've send you. Lionel is going to love the watercolour as much as the cheese. He's like Wallace (as in & Groomit)... obsessed with cheese!

    1. Glad you like it Murielle, it gave me a good excuse to try a new technique ; )
