This blog aims to document the process of my current project in which I am seeking to produce a miniature drawing of every capital city in the world There are are currently 196. This will on completion function as one piece of work.
The works are produced using archive quality materials. The oak blocks were made up using quarter sawn oak and cut by Letterfrack conservation in Galway. All of the oak blocks have been sized using rabbit skin glue, the gesso was then made up using the rabbit skin glue and white ground and six layers of gesso applied to all 196 oak blocks. The drawings are produced with pencil, scalpel and burnishing tools.
