::Egyptian Art::

Caelah and I tried our hand at Egyptian art. I studied an original painting, cut out the bits I didn't care for and kept the pretty bits.

Cae stuck with a single butter

Another thing we tried was drawing on sandpaper. It has a similar effect as painting on rock.

I have always loved artistically reducing real life images into simpler lines. This is an essential Egyptian technique that, in combination with bold, beautiful colours, gives me such an affinity in me for this art.
