Musical Triptic

“Musical Triptic” is a piece of three 80x80cm canvas ( around 32×32 inch ) , painted with Acrylic. It’s a decorative piece, for a part of my home and also a personal project.
This painting was made with different process and a big amount of various layers. Knife, watercolor/ink-likes parts, alla prima, heavy texture work and even collage and copper/gold parts.
… It was of course a pleasure to play so much with the textures, digital-painting world is so dry and ‘2D’ …

1. The three canvas in situ , a wall of my living-room kept for playing music.

2. A close-up on the left part , to show the collage of music score ( reproduction of hand written piece of F.Chopin )

3. Because I work with digital-painting, I don’t have a real painting workshop anymore , so I had to improvise one on my living-room. 

4. The initial speedpainting I did with Krita to plan my work and effect. I could watch it during all the process to not go too much into the chaos.

Ressource : Krita Brushes v4

Here is my 4th brushkit for Krita. A little 5×5 grid of my best tools.
As I keep painting daily, I also keep tweaking my brush-set on the fly, day after day.
I saw I was more productive with less brush, so I reduced the amount of them.
This brushkit is a personnal one, suited to my technics, and style. It’s not a generalist brush kit.
Have a fun time painting with them !

Download ( stable ) :
Github repo :

The brush are compatible with Krita 2.8 and probably future versions

To install them,  unzip, and paste the three resulting folder ( brushes / paintoppreset and patterns  ) into your Krita user preference directory ( exemple on linux )
You can also open your preference directory inside Krita : Edit > Ressources > Open Resources Folder , don’t forget to restart Krita after

Here is a demo of brush stroke made with them , for more infos on other presets, look at the previous V3 guide :

and a rough speedpaint with :
( for more demo, just look at my artworks from last summer to now ; especially Gooseberry ones )


Green Tea

A decorative painting for tea lovers and green lovers. I wanted to keep a part of the painting abstract and play on color vibration. This way I can still imagine a lot of possible landscape. I’ll print it for my kitchen, around 50cm height. Also, it’s a mini tribute to the Orphism art period, especially for the canvas of Robert and Sonia Delaunay ; so generous in colors. My heart melt each time I cross one artwork of them in a museum.

Krita for drawing and painting and Gmic plugin ( from Gimp ) for shape research and color tweaks.
