A simple and relative cheap way to promot art, is to make postcards from the paintings.Here a few examples of my latest paintings.Like always I have to refine the details some more.

Painting with the New Programs

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.

Ceramic Collages in Progress

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.

Breaking News

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

Ceramic Miniature Sculpture

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

I plan to do a portrait of Obama.Also I ám working at a surreal piece with a steamtrain,a horse,and continents.With the concept text 'Iron horses are animals too'.That is true the engine of the train has the same strenght as 3000 horses.Rob
