Harvest in Hand

Pyrography on pine with oil colour. 9 x 7
Beyond composition, the focus of this wood burning is texture and contours. I love cranking the burner up to 1700 degrees and dimpling the surface. For the hand I focused on continuous lines. The technique is pretty hard on the tips because I end up using a fair bit of pressure, but the ridges look nice and add extra dimension.

 

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.
