Welcome to today’s installment of the Book of Shadows sampler, which looks at the steps taken in creating a full-page knotwork design. In this instance, the main design is a bird-motif knotwork panel (design taken from Complete Celtic Designs) with decorated corners.
1. Pencilling the main design;
2. Pencilling the corner decorations, and inking the main design;
3. Inking, intermediary and final;
4. Colouring with inks;
5. Highlighting using metallic pens;
And with that, we have a beautifully decorated full page design!
