For the second and third panels of the antependium I had taken photos of the work before the detail lines went in, but then because I’m disorganised I mislaid them before I posted the finsihed pics. Therefore I resolved to start posting the first stage pictures as and when they were done.
So there you are, the fourth panel without the detailing lines added. This one gets to be fourth in narrative order as well as fourth in order of works.
Even a religious numpty like myself can tell this is the annunciation.
There is something quite demoralising about filling in the white backgrounds of these panels. It’s mainly the way that when I turn off the light and go up to bed, I look over my shoulder at it, and in the twilight the white doesn’t show up at all and it feels as though I’ve spent the day doing nowt.
