from the charcoal to the finished painting

Starting September 1. 2017 I worked on it in my studio at the Kunstquartier Wien in Meidling with the initial charcoal underdrawing. The process was eventually finished a month later, October 2. 2017

This work is currently on tour, I blogged about one of the tour stops in Viechtach here: MAGICAL DREAMS IV

For prints, I just posted it on my Pixels site:

... al kinds of prints available, even as a coffee mug!

The Steps

progress - charcoal - imprimatura and then white highlights started

progress - charcoal - imprimatura and glazes, yellow and blue, with white highlights in between, each step separated with a clear-coat glazing medium

the final image then received some local color and some highlight fine-tuning
and a touch of gold

About my Work


Fantastic work, both for method, choice of colors and their rendering (I love this opposition between blue technological parts and warm organic ones), and final result :)
Can't say much more due to lack of word... I'm simply impressed :)

thank you very much!

WOW. @curie should see it! excellent!

thank you - also for the suggestion 😃

AH .. I hope it works :)

well, sometimes they did check my stuff out - it's still early .....
but I am pleased that you like it

Beautiful woman, looks like an ancient Maria, surrealized. I'm also in love with the colors...

thank you - you are about right as far as "ancient" goes: Wikipedia about Isabelle de Vouthon

Awesome ..cheers from Borneo

Amazing painting, the texture is superb as well.
