Pattern for my father’s portrait


Master pattern on translucent vellum

I finished the pattern for my father’s marquetry portrait today. I first had to complete the outlining. Then I colored it so I could tell which areas were to be the same wood. The shading goes from dark to light: black, purple, dark blue, light blue, dark green, light green, orange. The same woods will be used as for my mother’s portrait.
