Max Ernst inspired - Art Journal Journey

Max Ernst was a famous german painter, graphic artist, sculptor and poet. He employed  techniques like frottage, grattage (what is a technique in which usually wet paint is scraped off the canvas) and also drip painting. I started with frottage ( the leaf) and tried to do some grattage too by scraping with a knife on different layers of oilpastels and white acrylic to create depth. At the end I even dared some drip painting.


Max Ernst war ein bedeutender Maler, Graphiker , Bildhauer und Dichter deutscher Herkunft. Die Techniken Frottage, Grattage und Drip Painting gehen auf ihn zurück. Ich habe bei dieser Seite mit einer Frottage begonnen ( das Blatt ) und habe dann ein wenig Grattage versucht, indem ich mehrere Schichten Ölpastelle zwischen Schichten weisser Acrylfarbe immer wieder mit einem Messer abgekratzt und dadurch untere Schichten hervorgeholt und Tiefe erzeugt habe. Ein ganz klein wenig Drip Painting (Oszillation) hab ich auch gewagt .

  6. I've always enjoyed the art of Max Ernst. I've also used this effect, both on wet and dry paint. It's definitely easier on wet.

    I like the back end of your new cup (grin). It's a beauty. I hope you show the other side one of these days.

    BTW, most of the T group has seen my "bird bath." If you want to see it, I have to apologize for the lousy photos, but I now have a MUCH, much better camera: http://alteredbooklover.blogspot.com/2012/12/before-i-take-much-needed-break.html

  8. Beautiful, Susi! I love the effect you've obtained with the leaf. I knew the term 'frottage' but didn't know that scraping off was 'grattage' so you've educated me :)

  11. I didn't realize that the leaf was a rubbing until I followed the link for frottage. The leaf image has turned out very well. I love the autumn colours
