Topic: Hymnal Art
The assigned hymn for today was another that was not in my hymnal. In fact, I had hever heard it before (still haven't) so I am working strictly from the lyrics.
What those lyrics reminded be of was Philippians 4:13 - "I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength".
Then I looked up that scripture online and found a great idea for the illustration.
I started by doing the brush lettering then sketching the illustration in pencil. When coloring in the mountain in brush marker I left a little border around the lettering so it stands out.
This is all done on a print of a digital copy of the music which I then trimmed to exact size and glued into the hymnal at the gutter.
