Pyrography on Mahogany with oil colour. 11 x 6

The original artwork can be purchased through the shop section or by contacting me.

My friend Dave gave me some Mahogany to try out. It’s very hard wood and it was difficult to get lighter tones so I decided to go very dark. This was a test piece for a composition to be burned onto recipe boxes. The test was looking good so I decided to finish it. Again, mahogany isn’t as receptive as other types of wood for pyrography so I haven’t worked with it since, but I’m still quite happy with this piece.

 

About Chris Wulff

I like to make pictures. Sometimes they move across the screen, sometimes they move you. I draw with fire on wood, with my finger on a phone, with a keyboard and fancy filters and sometimes even with a pencil on paper. I use a camera to capture what I see and my imagination to capture what I can't see.
