|6 Strand Copper Triquetra|
I'm so proud of this painting. It's on a 30x30x1.8cm cotton canvas with a chocolate brown mottled background. Sadly my camera doesn't do the colours justice- but I'll hopefully be getting a new one soon.
It took a while to figure out the best technique to get the design on to the canvas...especially as it's a dark background. At first I tried making a template from acetate, but the design was just too detailed sadly, so I opted for a technique using chalk on the back of the daft and thankfully it worked!

So after all that I finally finished the painting below using a fineliner and adding just a hint of shading where one 'cord' weaves under another.
