LE SUITE GESU: CROWNING WITH THORNS, 4TH PROOF

LE SUITE GESU: CROWNING WITH THORNS, 4TH PROOF

This is the second of three I bit on Sunday. I can see the path I’ll take with this one, which might inform the other two as well. The upper torso and head is going to be very worked. Lots of layering of bites of…

LE SUITE GESU: SCOURGING AT THE PILLAR, 4TH PROOF

LE SUITE GESU: SCOURGING AT THE PILLAR, 4TH PROOF

It’s coming along. I’ve yet to scrape and burnish. The running soldier is beginning to do what I want him to do. Now I have to figure out how to make the figure of Jesus into the visual destination of that running figure. I gave…

LE SUITE GESU: CARRYING THE CROSS, 3RD PROOF

LE SUITE GESU: CARRYING THE CROSS, 3RD PROOF

This was my first episode of scraping and burnishing for this print. Because an acrylic ground requires roughing up the surface of the plate with sandpaper (300 grit), the image was pretty gray everywhere. Now it is beginning to look like somethng. Jesus is the…

LE SUITE GESU: CARRYING THE CROSS, 2ND PROOF

LE SUITE GESU: CARRYING THE CROSS, 2ND PROOF

I’m listening to the Pope’s Mass in the Upper Room. What a blessing we have in our Holy Father. We have been blessed with many great popes for many, many years. My blessing tonight comes from doing these prints, and the difficulties they bring in…

LE SUITE GESU: SCOURGING 3RD PROOF

This is where I admit my enslavement to Rembrandt. That soldier rushing towards Jesus, I want him developed like I have seen done in prints like the 100 Gulder Print. The way the marks are layered over each other, with some being barely there, and…

LE SUITE GESU: CROWNING WITH THORNS 3RD PROOF

At a certain point, you abandon your study and the print takes on a life of its own…only when it has gone far enough to stand on its own. I don’t think I’m there yet, but it isn’t that far along yet anyway. I have…

LE SUITE GESU: CARRYING THE CROSS 1ST PROOF

LE SUITE GESU: CARRYING THE CROSS 1ST PROOF

I’d been tracing the prep drawing onto the plate using litho pencil-backed laser prints. Very messy and doesn’t give the best results. So this time I used everyday typewriter carbon paper. Worked beautifully. If you compare the study and the first proof, they match up…

LE SUITE GESU: SECOND PROOFS

LE SUITE GESU: SECOND PROOFS

I did a very light etch for the second proof. Just ten minutes. The directional slant of the marks on the shorter soldier inĀ ScourgingĀ (we know that Jesus was scourged by a tall man and a short one from the marks on the body in the…

LE SUITE GESU: BUILDING UP

LE SUITE GESU: BUILDING UP

There is absolutely no way to copy, line-for-line, a pencil drawing onto copper and make it work. I never found a way, and in any case, I have the pencil drawing. So I’m building this one up layer by layer of marks at different depths….

LE SUITE GESU: FIRST PROOFS

LE SUITE GESU: FIRST PROOFS

First proofs of work that has been developed in drawing to a satisfying finish is a shock. The best you can hope for is that certain touchstones in the print are drawn the way you wished them to be. These aren’t too bad. I missed…
