Back at it at last

Hello there,
2weeks ago, I finished an alabaster sculpture called "Double vortex", 42cm diam and 15cm thick. It was quite tricky to carve because of its thinness and the complexity of the design.

The other difficulty was the base in onyx, it was the first time that I was using this kind of material. It doesn't seem to like being carved, instead it os ok to grind it. Once it is polished, the colour is fantastic.

Overall, it was a great exprience.

Take care of yourselves.

New painting

It's been 5 years since I last enjoyed painting. Here are the results:

This first one is for a competition, which one? I can't tell yet... Title: "Wine for everyone!"

The next one was a Christmas gift to my mother, it is titled "Explosion of joy".

Enjoy the pictures and of course, I wish a happy New Year to everyone.

New sculpture: a sail in limestone

I am in the process of finishing my first commission: a sail in a beautiful limestone from Caen (Normandy, France). I have already spent around 12hours and should finish after another 3-5hours to work on the details.

The photo shows some very congested areas (the waves are too many, the lines of the sail, in the lower part are far too exagerated). I have already reduced them significantly. After a bit of thinking and work the whole lot should be more acceptable and more homogen.

The film to be broadcasted on Youtube, is going very well. The last set of pictures/film will be produced once the sculpture is completley finished and ready to be at exhibition level.
