A documentary rosewood secrétaire à abattant by Gillows, inscribed in pencil: Wm Maychell 1815.
This compact French-influenced secrétaire in Grecian taste is decorated with geometric mouldings, bookmatched veneers and ‘rich carved trusses and pilasters’ of Brazilian rosewood, a timber at the height of fashion in the early 19th century. One of the drawers is inscribed in pencil ‘Wm Maychell 1815’; William Maychell of Cartmel was an established client of the firm who ordered a mahogany version for his wife the following year.
phew! today's #wip 🙌 my first attempt at colouring in the lineart went so wrong i had to abandon it (after over an hour!) and start again. which was a great decision. it's easy to endlessly try to fix things but sometimes it's best to start again to see where you went wrong. for me, all the colours were just BAD. anyway, i really like ancient greek hair wraps, don't you? dunno if they were ever orange though! #art#digitalart#painting
