Rosenthal Ketubah in Process

Tracing of ketubah design           Color Study of wedding flowers                              Final Hebrew/English Text

Pencil on vellum paper           Watercolor and gouache on Fabriano paper                I paint the text first and 

                                                                                                                                                 and then the border art.

I paint the flowers around the text starting from the right hand side bottom and work my way up and around to the left. After the flowers are completed I add the landscape, sky and any finishing touches. 

The art is covered with special protective sheets as the work is created to make sure the work is kept clean throughout the painting. I play festive music as I paint the illustrative flowers as if it were already at the wedding. The mood of my studio is very calm, serene and filled with Brushstrokes of Love
