Topic: Bible Journaling
This scripture was one of the first I put on my list for future journalling -- "From the rising of the sun to the place where it sets, the name of the Lord is to be praised."
When I first read this I knew I wanted to do a scene that could be either a sunrise or a sunset. I think I succeeded.
I drew all the elements using double lines so they would have more impact. I used solid black for the birds, the tree trunks and the man praising. This makes them easier to see against the background and also reinforces the scene.
I used yellows, oranges, pinks, purples and blues to color the sky and added bright yellow to the edges of the objects facing the sun to give them a glow.
The trees and the grass were colored with a mixture of dull greens and they were further muted with layers of successively darker greys.
I have been marking and printing neat lettering styles from Pinterest and found several in those that I thought went well together as well as suiting the text.
I colored the letters with colors from the artwork - orange, 2 purples and a green.
