Sections of a wooden delivery pallet, mitered and glued to create a wooden frame. Inside the frame is an A4 piece of sketchbook paper with a frame design inspired by 18th Century Chippendale designs, drawn in pencil, pen, coloured pencil and acrylic paint. The design has been carved into one side of the wooden frame and covered in gesso, which has been made in the traditional manner of Rabbit skin glue and whiting. The gesso has then been detailed and water gilded.
