  • Albrecht Durer reproduction

    I'm not usually a big fan of art, but I've stumbled across one artist drawings that I think are pretty neat, Albrecht Durer a German artist 1441-1528 has caught my eye.

    Hope he doesn't send down a thunderbolt for my efforts in doing this draw of his done in 1503. I haven't decided how to finish it oil or acrylic, any options are welcomed.

      There are many woodcarved examples of Albrecht Dürer's "Praying Hands." In fact, they were probably the inspiration for the "Drawing Hands" that M. C. Escher did as a lithograph in 1948. Dürer was featured in an art exhibit in Washington D.C. in 1992 as an example of art from 1492 when celebrating the 500th anniversary of Columbus's discovery of America.

        I wouldn't know that piece was from so long ago if you didn't tell me. Truly, a "timeless" piece of art. What ever way you decide to finish it, please share the results.

            I still haven't done anything with the first one. but I did do another one that is also unfinished at the time. I'm thinking about doing a gray barn wood finish outside the relieve carving its self.

            I would do some painting, but the paint dept is filled up

            As usual, C&C are welcomed

                  Great stuff Joe. Smart move not pushing the paint dept. Gotta keep that harmony alive.

                    Here is another one of Durer's drawings, I believe it is called "Head of Old Man" ~ 1521.

                    I have one more portrait of his mother ~1514. Once it is done I try painting the four carvings

                        The paint dept tells that it is through painting the Christmas exchange Ornies. I also finished up; this the last of the Durer portraits that I'm going to carve for a while, This is his mother. So I guess I slip in and try to get them painted up.
