As I explore the possibilities of grisaille enamel - I thought I would investigate the possibilities of pre-Raphaelite style. I found this image of a Dante Rossetti painting in a book about the Saints.
I've been away from blogging for a couple of weeks as I try to get my head around opening my on-line enamel supply business. Been taking E-commerce workshops and talking to IT specialists - which you wouldn't think would be very conducive to creativity - but in fact, once I get into the studio I find myself pretty energized. Here's the latest project:
It's amazing how pervasive this image of the warrior woman is. It has always been particularly inspiring to me, much more so than 'mother and child'.
I am SO enjoying painting. It's very satisfying. I can also complete a grisaille in a day, while champleve takes me six days before I see the results. I have some more cloisonne projects ready to go, so I will be posting them soon.
