LE SUITE GESU: EASTER WEDNESDAY NOTES

LE SUITE GESU: EASTER WEDNESDAY NOTES

 I had to make major changes to the Crowning with Thorns/Mocking of Christ. I had a really good drawing of His chest, but it was too perfect. He looked like Mr. Universe, instead of the creator of the universe made man. Big difference.The formal, compositional…

LE SUITE GESU: EASTER TUESDAY NOTES

Back to studies for a new etching, I gravitated to the Third Mystery of the Sorrowful Mysteries. We are now in the Glorious part of Easter, but these things take hold of you when you have an image jumping around in your mind. I’m going…

LE SUITE GESU: EASTER MONDAY NOTES

The weekend was filled with observance of Easter, but I did get something done tonight. I traced my final study onto the plate. Then I put it aside to do the real work later. It was a beautiful day and Easter morning mass was packed…

LE SUITE GESU: EASTER SUNDAY NOTES

I watched some programs on the Shroud of Turin this week. One of the best ones was about the Sudarium, the cloth that covered the face of Christ when he was on the cross and was wrapped around His head in the tomb. It has…

LE SUITE GESU: GOOD FRIDAY NOTES

The image that goes with this post is a side chapel in the church I’ve been attending since 1992. I saw this parishioner touching the feet of this crucifix and it struck me. It happened some months back and reminded me of the passage in…

LE SUITE GESU: SCOURGING STUDY: DAY THREE

LE SUITE GESU: SCOURGING STUDY: DAY THREE

LE SUITE GESU: SCOURGING STUDY: DAY TWO

So I had this idea of the soldier flinging himself at Jesus, suggesting that the force of the blow is horrific without having to show that the force of the blow is horrific. It is something mentioned more than once by Jim Caviezel in interviews…

LE SUITE GESU: SCOURGING STUDY – DAY ONE

LE SUITE GESU: SCOURGING STUDY – DAY ONE

I got this far today. I’m using an old classical drawing trick. I’ve worked out the shapes I want and have them in outline, more like you’d see in Greek red vase painting. For the kind of print I’m doing, it makes for a good…

LE SUITE GESU: THE SCOURGING AT THE PILLAR

LE SUITE GESU: THE SCOURGING AT THE PILLAR

The first ten prints are in the can, so I’m working on an image I’ve been planning for a month, mostly in my mind. It is a Scourging at the Pillar. Lots of artists have done it. Piero de la Francesca did a very interesting…
