This Ukulele is a wedding present, from friends of the Bride & Groom. The picture has special significance, as this is the location of their engagement. 

This is a Ukulele kit, with unfinished timber, thus allowing some freedom for the decoration of your choice.

The rectangle space between the bench and the park bridge, is where the (strings) bridge will be placed. This meant that the bench had to be slightly smaller than as it appears in the original photo, in order to fit into the space remaining and the shape of the Ukulele.

The decorations around the sound-hole, and around the side of the Ukulele, are taken from the design of the wedding invitation.

The usual method of shading was not going to produce enough of a variation in tones, due to the timber used for this ukulele kit. Therefore, I used a needle point tip, and used a 'pixel' method of burning...& thousands of varied temperature dots later, I finished the image!!

There has been a measure of 'artistic licence' with some of the detail...some of the bushes would be hard to reproduce, and using the 'pixel' or stipple method, I have come as close as I could without detracting from the primary focus of the picture...the Bench. 

The 'pixel' or stipple method is time consuming, but with this sort of timber, it allowed me to produce better shading, more detail,with darker tones & more contrast...far more detail than ordinary shading would have provided.

It was indeed a pleasure to be able to contribute towards this special gift, and I thank Joshua & Krystal for allowing me to burn this image.
