I have been enamelling this 10×10 piece for an exhibition my teacher is organizing in Limoges, which is called “Visions de Catalunya”, so it had to do something to do with Catalonia, but quite freely. I choose mushrooms because mushroom hunting is the national sport in my opinion, and this kind is especially valued.
The size had to be 10×10 and the fixed price will be 100€ for all. After participation fees and gallery % there is not much left, so I didn’t put much time into this, which is evident I think :S
Anyway, much of the texture is lost in the picture, as usual.
Anyway, that is it I think. I may add some onglaze details, though. And perhaps darken the background.
This is the first time I have used opal enamels over pale opaques. It can give interesting results, I will try it again in the future.
Off to my in laws now.
