Birch Leaves

Leaves

For the past few months I have been painting birch leaves in my painting of Heironymous Bosch (Paintings in Progress).  Here is a detail of the leaves in the canopy over the head of the Walking Man from the right hand panel.

A small copper plate in progress…

St. Christopher A small copper plate engraving of Saint Christopher in the early stages of cutting. If you shine the light and reflect a piece of white paper you can see the lines pretty well. It helps also to rub some polishing compound into the lines to darken them up. A burin and a lozenge at the top of the picture are the cutting tools.
