Different mediums with similar results. The beauty of bronze is that it constantly changes colors over the years. Which on is your favorite?

Died today in 1531 the great German artist Tilman Riemenschneider. This is an original replica of his famous Blood altar on a slightly smaller scale. The art piece can still be admired in our gallery and is still available for rent or purchase. It was carved in 1992 by Wilfried Senoner (1945-1999) and it took more than one year to finish.

You start off with a pencil to draw the main lines and then you use soft watercolors for the shading and light coloring.

Sketch of the day: Political Situation

Although this sketch was made about 46 years ago while Nixon was president it can be interpreted as a mirror image of the current state of US politics. I leave you the freedom to “read” between the lines and make sense of the drawing. History keeps repeating itself….

Your feedback is always appreciated!
