Just in time for holiday shopping, artist Mitchell Lurth created a few long lines of his own. This firearm engraving features a different take on background treatment, and everything falls right in line.
Lurth has used long diagonal lines to set the highly-detailed scrolls apart from the background. The engraving of each leaf and scroll echoes this background treatment with dozens of long shade lines in the small areas. Lurth made sure to leave plenty of open areas, free of shade lines, through the design to contrast with the many shade lines. Overall, the simple background treatment is a nice balance in contrast with the details of the scrolls. Thanks for sharing, Mitchell!
