Re: Flemish Technique Examples

Thank you Jacqui!

I checked out your block prints, and they are outstanding! I like to dabble in block printing. I have a little press that I need to exercise more often...

Re: Flemish Technique Examples

Oh thank you! That is a huge compliment considering it came from you. I guess block printing is my niche. I pull all my prints by hand. Maybe some day I'll 'graduate' to a little press!

Re: Flemish Technique Examples

Mark, what a privilege to be taught art by your grandmother. Is that where you learned to paint metal? Just visited your website - you really have an eye for reflection and color.

Re: Flemish Technique Examples

Hi Jacqui, I got a Richeson Baby Press and it's quite nice.

My grandmother got me interested in painting and I took lessons from her when I was about 14-15. Metal is something I taught myself to paint over the last few years.

Re: Flemish Technique Examples

Hi Galina, sorry I wasn't around to answer your question. You probably gave up all hope, but just in case you see my response, here goes...

I think you've done a terrific job on this. I'm flattered that you found my examples good enough to try for yourself. You've captured the metal look very well and I can tell you've concentrated on the abstract shapes on the lid without worrying about what special color is needed to paint metal. That's the secret!

Re: Flemish Technique Examples

hey maverick,

wonderfully painted .....
just one question: did you find the "dead layer" to be helpful for your painting? I am asking because i dont get the clue what it is good for. you have the imprimatura - chosen in the perfect hue for the painting. then you do the underpainting. just fine. then everything is painted over in a dead color - just why? then you give color back to your painting where the imprimatura and the first underpainting would have been extremely helpful ...

you mention yourself that it is the first time youre using this technique, will you return to your usual routine or will you stick with the flamish one?

I am so curious because Im studying at the Vienna academy of applied arts and no one is using it .....

anyway you achieved excellent results, congratulations!!!!

best regards

Andy
