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 done with this one :-) I need to keep repeating myself not to paint every strand of hair but the simplified shape.

I received some amazing handmade brushes from an artisan woman in UK, it feels like I never had real brushes before :-) For the first time I feel like I decide what the brush makes, instead of the opposite.

Painting a study of a readhead. I'm struggling with that hair ! I find it hard to get the right balance between showing the paint work and showing the hair detail.

One year after ;-) I finally finished my sun shade painting visor :-) It went not so bad, I'm happy of the result. Sliding the wire inside the finished bias binding was the most challenging. The pattern is available on the internets , it is called "lucent visor" . It has a really huge shade

Working on brushstrokes work, copying a study after Jeremy Lipking. Working in wet oil is really cool once you decide it can be :-)

Displaying my and works in the epic setup of the Abbaye de Celles-sur-Belle, together with other nice artists from the region . I feel really lucky !

If you gaze at the arts or the discourse of today with disappointment, devote yourself to making and sharing something better. Build if only in a small way the culture you wish to live in.

The image is "Inspiration" by William-Adolphe Bouguereau (1898).

I just created another account for my ham radio side as @F4INS , as an attempt not to get art followers bored with radio stuff and vice versa . Have a nice sunday everyone :-)

I have just had my first 5 CW QSOs on 20m. Pfew ! That was quite a struggle, but also a real feeling of accomplishment :-) Fortunately the guys were veeeerrryy patient @M0YNG

Ready made large canvases are too expensive, so I have been making my own stretchers and stretched canvas on it . It has been a nice woodworking moment, and I am happy of the result.

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.
