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

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.

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 🤩

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.

Work in progress : a in of two brothers for a . It has been impossible to paint due to the heat these days... Today at last we had cool rain and fresh air so I could get at it again :-) I need to calm down my contrasts it seems they are going to play theater, when they should not !

What's the one thing every web user can do to fight #SurveillanceCapitalism ?

Replace the Google Chrome browser

I've started a new website to send a message to Google that we prefer the internet without them

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'm reading the french edition of "Bright Earth: Art and the Invention of Color" by Philip Ball ( "Histoire vivante des couleurs : 5000 ans de peinture racontée par les pigments" ) - Art history seen with the eyes of a chemist : how did pigment availability change art through the ages. It is a really neat book for those who care about matter 🤓

More oil pixels 😂 I've been speed mixing this afternoon with a poster study for a commission portrait . It is damn hot here now

Did you notice that dioxazine and flake are the two ones paint tubes that leak, and that you really don't want that ?

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

where the heck on earth can you talk gluing photo paper to polyester fabric with people who really care doing it right ? I get to love mastodon.art😍
