Pinned toot

Hello ! I'm a french painter, all new here. Making my first steps to discover Mastodon and the mastodon.art community :)

Here is a study in that I made last week

Almost there ! I will want to fix some little things here and there but I think she is grounded now 😅 I have quite some sunken in areas, I think I will have to better seal the canvas next time

Hand light study in - I liked the outdoors lightning on the reference, and the grace of the hand pose. So it was a pleasant subject to practice turning form with color temperature 😁

I finally put the last corrections to this portrait of two brothers. I have had some hard time due to the backlit reference picture which I was given to work with, so I had to invent most of the forms in the shadows. In the end I think likeness is here.

I have just been testing a 100% recycled heavy paper for a series project, it turns out to work really good ! I am really happy as it is quite difficult to find such a paper where I live.

Trying to paint the air between the model and the viewer. It seems that one way to suggest this is to let the coolness of the light invade shadows. Oil is so nice and friendly to achieve subtle mixes, I don't think other paint materials allow this.

I just discovered that manganese blue is not produced anymore. What a pity, there is no such a wonderful blue pigment on earth. I'm glad I have a tube that is still almost full.

I have just been finishing and photographying these . I managed to put up a great scanner-like setup to take photos despite the shiny fresh surface, using 2 lamps at 45° and a black curtain with a hole between me and the paintings. I had tried many times to do it outside under overcast scattered light with no avail...

A very Happy new year to all the mastodon freaks !! Carving more for some wider format limited print of my night ambiant

I love the staring thing to sort out big collections

More blocking-in with chalk light study for a new . I left the easel unattended for quite some time, it is good to be back at it again :-)

Printing full steam ahead ! My workflow is good now, I have proper registration, reasonable drying times, a paper cutter that works fast and clean. Next step will be to go to book shops and convince them to take some... Setting up my online store soon too 🐾

Asking the Mastodon community : What would be the correct way to toot in multiple languages without flooding followers / timelines ? Use one account per language ? Use language tags ? Include translations within each toot ? ( like this )
Quelle serait la bonne methode pour poueter dans plusieurs langues sans inonder les abonnés / les timelines ? Utiliser un compte par langue ? Utiliser des tags de langues ? Inclure la traduction dans chaque pouet ? ( comme ici )

I'm torn between giving this a very cool or absolutely ridiculous name

I finished and varnished this fabrics and texture study. The varnish really made the darks deep and the lights pop out. Very hard to photography without making it shine or washed out... Reference stock here : deviantart.com/daniellefiore/a

Knows that cheap art tools don't work. Buys cheap ink roller anyways. Finds out it doesn't work. Buys expensive ink roller. 🤦

1st batch of handprinted linocut postcards versos on my 3€ homemade printmaking drying shed 😅

Varnishing time : the whole house stinks, you hate your cat's hairs, but you are suddenly that 8 years old kid again, amazed at what a coat of water does to a dull pebble 🤩
