Urnes Stave Church

Visited Norway recently and created this small study of the wonderful Urnes carvings...used pen and ink on the outer deeper relief areas and pencil on the inner shallow parts of the design...have always loved Celtic/anglo-saxon/Viking arts so seeing this was very inspiring! The drawing is in black and white so far, colour here came quickly from photoshop, but I intend to use more traditional methods in inks/acrylic etc to experiment with colour over my own prints next.
