Jane is a tutor at West Dean College -

Front:

Jane Arkwright Dscn0438

Back:

Jane Arkwright Dscn0513


Titled 'The Ace of Spades'. I prefer the front because the pot with the two bulbs/shallots looks like an owl.

Excellent

It has a pot and a mug on the front, and a jug on the back. What more could a potaholic want from a picture.  Laughter

Indeed it looks good and I prefer the front. Can you tell how it's done?

That is a very good question, and without the partially finished one on the back I would not have guessed. Initially I thought it was a pottery tile.
It looks like gesso on a wooden board that's then been scored, painted, rubbed, scored, rubbed again, probably more paint, and at some point a dark wash applied to fill the scored areas which would otherwise be white from the gesso below, rubbed, and varnished - looks like several layers have been applied to give the finished look. The wooden frame around it has also been carefully prepared - roughly sanded, painted, and varnished. A lot of work to make something look like an old bit of painted driftwood.
