The country set this week by Darcy is
The swirly background symbolises the carnival
atmosphere of Rio de Janeiro.
I gessoed the blank postcard and while it was still
wet used a detailing stick to draw spiral shapes.
Once dry I used water soluble wax crayons,
which I then spritzed with water.
Hmmmm, rather too bright for me
so I smeared more gesso over the top.
Onto a map of Brazil I drew the outline of the
Christ the Redeemer statue
which is on top of the Corcovado Mountain.
The postcard is edged with black Staz-On.
As all my official correspondence has been returned unopened, I am forced to contact you through postcards. Most unsatisfactory.
As you can see, I am in Brazil, having some very interesting conversations with your old 'colleague', "One Eye"
Please note that I am now a Detective Superintendent.
Det Supt Clarke

The ball is now in your court, Lord Forsyth!
To other Darcy Postcarders;
thank you for dropping by and commenting
on my postcard. I will try to get round to see as
many of yours as I can.
