Still working at the computer paintings.I plan now to make only 1 print from a computer painting on a sheet of aluminium,so the painting will keep unique.Here a few concepts done with the programs Paintshop Pro X4 , Painter 12 ,and the Wacom Intuos 5 tablet.I have to refine the paintings some more.With Painter 12 it is possible to add (virtual)reliefs to images,so the program is also great for designing clay relief tiles.

I like to use thin ceramic models to make collage work.Part of the relative small and thin work is ceramic and another part (the background )of the collage is a large print.The print is a computer painting ,many of the images in the print are retouched ceramics.For the moment I work with flat prints, but I plan to invert the print into a sort of semi relief-I have to investigate a technique with blue foam to do that further.Some examples of the prints.

Beside the miniatures I have made now for my tiles a crackle slip which I can wet again and model(with a sheet of transparent plastic between the modeltool and the tile).To my cat tile are added small silkscreen made black images.I plan a city serie with my cat as the tourist and for each town characteristic buildings.Rob

It is fun to add mini clay sculptures to my already fired tile. I have made sofar a buste of Chopin,coins,stamps,buildings and cars.The pieces need not much material use, and can made in a mini studio.I sculp the miniatures on plaster with a piece of paper and a sheet of plastic between the casting clay and the model tool.Also I use small brushes and casting clay to raise and paint the model.Rob
