Hello there watchers.
As you've might noticed I haven't really been updating my dA gallery that often, nor have I been livestreaming or posting any new journal entries.
I'm still using this account, but nowadays just for browsing inspiring art or when I need resources like references or stock photos.
This is all because I'm more active on my tumblr blog. I've found the structure and concept of Tumblr to fit me much more than DeviantArt in terms of communicating with my followers and friends online.
And currently I'm studying Faux Painting and traditional gilding in a little town called Tibro.
What is Faux Painting?
Well it's basically the art of imitate realistic wood and marble stone texture.
Faux painting is a old classic kind of traditional art. So I've been working a lot with oils and pigments. And I've also learned how to use regular beer as a binder for pigments (instead of using water).
Here's some examples of marblings I've made this far:
I really enjoy it, especially since I've wanted to take a break from only doing digital art. And I also have discovered so many various and cool kinds of marble stone there is out there.
I've started to upload some videos on my "new" youtube channel where I gild some stuff with metal leaves of various kinds:www.youtube.com/channel/UCjt8l…
When I get the opportunity, I will scan/photo the marble painting I've done and submit them here as resource collection for you guys to use for reference/texture etc.
So I think that's about all I've got to say for now. I have a few artworks I haven't uploaded in my gallery yet, so let's hope I can get a wee bit more active on this account again.
