Pinned toot

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

Here is a study in that I made last week

Preliminary drawing for a portrait of my optician. We traded a pair of progressive glasses for an :-) Isn't that fair of him ?

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.
