Pencil Box Painting

Here is a wooden cigar box that I painted with a border around the sides. It is from a photograph of an old French clock I took in a museum in Arles. The background is a bit unresolved, I glazed a white wash over it, and will probably add a light color to it.
These boxes are great if you like painting on wood. I have done dozens of these as jewel boxes,lined with velvet. I'll have to find some photographs and post them sometime.

My beloved Prismacolor and Lyra watercolor pencils. My son can't keep his hands off of them!
