November in the studio….. I

This month so far we have been working on all sizes of globes as per usual… a few new things in the mix though…

Two 50cm in Britannia Blue.. layers of watercolour make this colour shine more green in some light and blue in other light.

We have a Glacial Blue 80cm globes in progress, almost completed. It will be glossed and fitted to a handcrafted wood base with a hand engraved brass meridian.

And excitingly our first Glacial Blue 36cm Livingstone (finished pictures to come).

Sam has us covered on the 36cm’s and her and Leo are working on the 23cm Mini Desk Globes.

We also did our first 36cm Livingstone in “Champagne” – pictured below and in link.
