The art of copy

A sneak preview of the “Witch's Kitchen” of the Plagiarists

Copying is the fine art of adapting to the capabilities of the old artist according to his personality, the historical period and the environment.

A selection of subjects and layout and also working methods for support, drawing, pigment, colour structure to produce the image using pencil and brush in a convincing and accomplished way.

You can read the old recipes like those in a 5 stars restaurant menu. 

 

No wonder, as everything edible is also the raw material for high quality colours and pictures. 

  • Honey – Binder for plaster priming of the painting surface,
  • Wine – Solvent for watercolours
  • Eggs – Binder for watercolours
  • Garlic – Binder with snail slime, for golden powder
  • Flour – pastes, glue, filler
  • Bread – etching, brighten, chalk drawing
  • Potatoes – remove grease stains 
  • Coffee, Tea, chicory – tint for paper
  • Milk – useful fixator for pencil, chalk, pastel.

 

Basic principle:

  • „Genius is not about having new ideas but being so obsessed by the idea such that what has already been said about it is not enough.” (Eugène Delacroix)
