My Tokyo Salon participant panel

My Tokyo Salon participant panel-japan-panel-1

For the International Salon event in Tokyo (May 2013), I painted this panel for the “East meets West” theme.

For the “West”, I cheated a little and used a previously painted panel.  I used the inner portion to repaint.

First, I created a woodgrain background.  I was going for a light walnut.

I found this samurai design.  We did a little editing to remove the sword and re-position the hand.

Once the image was printed to size, I transferred the design

Then I made a pounce pattern for the remaining elements

I love the lettering part since that’s where I started out.  I used this great synthetic lettering brush with a flat top.
