Dzyan (Eric Jarque) tells us about his plastic approach

Dzyan (Eric Jarque) wrote me this pleasant email intended for the Blog of the Franco-Swiss online gallery. I am happy to publish it to you in our editorial line.

This is Dzyan’s experience of working on a live model. Subject that is known to me especially as I posed myself for Philippe and other plastic artists a few years ago.
Let’s read Dzyan now.

“The session took place in two periods of three hours, at the studio of artists of the Emerald Coast that I attended for a year. The lady, all slender with a pretty face, was just dressed in a lace veil and was able to keep the pose without moving. I was able to measure the difficulty of this so particular work. During this day, I could only pose the large masses and the shadows in pencil. final result, it is of course very far from what I hoped for it seemed so difficult to me.

I had prepared the canvas with 4 coats of Blanc de Meudon diluted with skin glue and intermediate drying. The canvas has become so hard that it looks like a wooden slab. Moreover, this artisanal process left on the entire surface of the canvas, very fine marks in length that I did not sand on purpose.

The coloring was done at home and I returned there many sessions by adding successive glazes, as I like to do. Mixed with the colors, the first coats were lean with aspic gasoline and a little Venetian turpentine. For the following coats, I had composed a medium of black oil, copal varnish, mastic resin, and Flemish drying medium. This composition has the advantage of being able to work again in the semi-fresh the next day, without disturbing the layers below that were put on the day before.

Soon I’ll be starting a fairly large navy that a friend asked me for in exchange for tree trunks for my totem poles. “

I take a new pleasure to publish a photo of the Totems of Dzyan.
Thanks, Eric.
