Guitar Design

My best friend has this super cheap but very good guitar, and always plays crazy flamenco on it. He asked me to do something with it, and this is what I came up with.

I took down the strings, sanded the top surface carefully and drew the design on it with pencil. After that I painted it with bistre pigment, this is easy to apply corrections to, a wet cloth will swipe it off of the super smooth surface and it has a cool water-y painterly feel to it. This fitted the guitar, the person, and the music style perfectly. Some layers of carefully applied wood-varnish later we could go jam on the beach!!! <3
