Show Me The Money

Drawing of a five pound note

Phew! It’s done. I don’t know if I’ll ever (willingly) attempt to draw a bank-note again (unless it’s a not very detailed bank-note, or I want to punish myself) but since yesterday I’m glad to have this drawing finished.

It’s probably one of my drawings that’s taken the longest time to finish and as usual I can see a few areas that I’d do differently if I repeated it, or where I made mistakes (like the wonky metallic thread and the fact that the wiggly pattern on the left hand side isn’t supposed to continue right to the edge of the note) but overall I’m kind of pleased with it.

I certainly know a lot about the details on a five pound note now, and itt was definitely a challenge which is a good thing.

    You should be proud. You did an excellent. It is a sketch, not a forgery!

      Thanks Sandra. Although it was hard work and took longer than I’d anticipated (and in spite of my niggles about ‘mistakes’) I’m glad I’ve done this and I am proud of it. I’ve learnt a lot too! 🙂

      Thank you! As I was drawing it I was thinking of just keeping it in black and white but I’m glad I added the colour as it makes it look a bit more like a five pound note :).

    Wow…that’s incredible. It may not be a forgery but I wouldn’t be surprised if you could spend it. Mind you – the drawing is worth a lot more than a fiver eh?

      Thanks Stew! Maybe if I get the size right I could use it at a self service check out ;).
