Now in "Pratique des Arts"....


New pages with exercises + "mini tutorial" videos in "Pratiques des Arts"
(N°134, June-July 2017)
An error though; a drawing of my friend and great artist Juankar Cardesin is published without giving his name. (in red circle below). My apologies to Juankar! 

Nouvelles pages d'exercises + "mini demo" videos dans Pratiques des Arts 
(N°134, Juin-Juillet 2017)
Une erreur c'est glissée dans ces pages; un dessin de mon ami et grand artiste Juankar Cardesin y est reproduite sans citer son nom. Je lui présente mes excuses! 
(Entouré de rouge ci dessous) 





First time videos for me; one try one take! Not so easy to do this with a camera around my head!
This article talk about "gesture" I would rather say "fear"... as gesture comes after the fear is gone and confidence boosted. These exercises will treat your fear more than develop directly your gesture. To develop your gestures I would add the advice to work in standing position, with big sizes using your arm or body more than just hand. 

Une première pour moi ces videos; "ça tourne" en une seule prise ! Pas si simple avec une camera autour de ma tête ! Ces pages dévoilent des exercises pour travailler le geste, ils effaceront plus vos peurs en premier, les gestes suivront et la confiance aussi. Pour developper vos gestes je vous recommande de travailler debout, avec des grands formats vous servant des bras et du corps en plus que juste la main.

How wonderful to be able to see you in action, thanks so much for the video!! Now I have a question, what brushes are you using?

Helen Ström said...

Hello Joanne,
To get a looser feeling when painting I use a Da Vinci's serie 435 "handmade by Anita Ranch" and sold by Sennelier, 3 Quai Voltaire, 75007 Paris (they say it's specially made for them)You have a few different sizes I got a smaller, a medium and a bigger one which is size 4. The others may be nr 0 and nr 2. Hairs are a mixture I think and can contain quite an amount of liquide and they are long and pointy; caligrafic style brush.
Sorry for this late answer!
Kind regards,
Helen
