I work away at my new passion, watercolours. Trying to be as loose as possible. My caricatures have also been executed in a loose style for years. There is another art that I am deeply involved in. An art that is so removed from my usual loose style. Cutting silhouettes is a very exact art. These profiles are cut freehand from black paper in about two minutes. I do walkabout at corporate events or weddings, cutting silhouettes on the move. Sometimes it becomes difficult, especially in low light function rooms. It is also quite tricky in crowded areas. I haven't stabbed anyone yet though.
This silhouette is of my daughter. I mounted it between two pieces of glass. This allows a shadow to fall on to the white background. What is achieved is a floating profile. Still not getting enough gigs doing this. People are generally ignorant of this French art, but when they see it they love it.
