I have only been posting works related to my online courses recently. I have to admit that it takes a lot of time. Nevertheless, with Valentine’s Day approaching, I decided to do something a bit different. Here is a Roman capital decorated with white vine on a support of patinated copper leaf, the whole being made with acrylic paint. I take this opportunity to wish you (with a little advance), full of love in this new year.
And, if you doubt my ability to realize a patinated copper foil collage, you are right. It is my wife who made it… All I did was to scribble my Roman capital and its associated Vine over it.
All I need is love and a woman who does great things to help me 😉
Winter is coming. I know spring has just begun but, winter is coming. I consequently decided to get myself to knitting. As I just can’t cope with needles and wool, I opted for steel and copper so as to make myslef a scarf for winter (cos it’s coming !!).
I doubt it can keep me warm, but until then, it keeps me busy 🙂
Another try with engraving, this time on copper. I used an excerpt from the Steppenwolf by Hermann Hesse.
The copper plate was a bit too thin and the result doesn’t meet therefore my expectations. I nevertheless find interesting the different colors appeared on the plate, due to the use of tar instead of my regular varnish. And it perfectly match the text, I think.
