Blue

 It seems I can't switch to another color lately.
And the stained-glass window I did a while ago made me want to go back to those patterns.
This time, I "invented" a small rosace, embossed and then filigreed.
The embossing is less elaborate, but it remains a small (8 cm in diameter) and pleasant realisation.

Gravity, give it back to the weight of the earth...

Fourth and last version of my fragment of Rainer Maria Rilke's Sonnets to Orpheus that I was telling you about here.
The first inked version does not satisfy me so I changed for an intaglio lettering for the original version and a very small and elongated version for the French translation.



All this is done on watercolor paper, iron gall ink and Prussian blue.

Recycling

It's decided, I stop calligraphy and I move on to nail art.
What I produced this morning has absolutely no interest except the decoration of my thumb :-)

 it's becoming a habit, I create course certificates for the people who attend my courses.
Here is a view of the attestations for the trainees of this weekend on Art Nouveau.

Composition

There are still a few places left for this weekend's class in the workshop.
It will be dedicated to Art Nouveau and composition.
As an example of what will be covered during this course, some pictures of a work in progress on a fragment of Rilke's Sonnets at Orpheus.

first pencil version


second version reworked for justification


third version in ink, first draft of the final version without the decoration


If you are interested, you can still contact me :-)
