Baskunchak is a salt lake not very far from Ukraine.. The colours took me several weeks to fine tune.
Here’s a diorama I intended as being a cliché of everything nice and summer related, a holidays feel. the scale is more reduced than usual. I don’t know whetehr 1/48 or 1/72 would be best to qualify it.
I absoluteley don’t know whethere there are such paths leading to the sea in Scotland. I based that diorama on a picture I found on Instagram but couldn’t remind where it was shot. I’m particularly happy about the colouring despite the subdued feel of that scene. Finally I absolutely love to add herons in my
When the summer comes, I start again creating water related dioramas because the epoxy resin dries better. Here’s another Northem Sea diorama complete with driftwood and a bit of dark sea. Payne Gray rules!
Some Northern sea is did last October. The biggest seascape I ever did yet. Inspired by pictures taken on the Lofoten islands, near Norway.
That’s a very simple scene with a frigate bird and a light blue sea. I love doing such dioramas in the summer, before going to holidays.
That one is based on the picture of a woman bathing in ice.. a good pretext to model ice and to play with colours
1/35 Northern sea diorama based in Sweden, complete with little boats and another Heron! The little brother of Kamtchatka diorama
The first of the tropics series. the idea is experimenting again with colour depth, epoxy resin sculpting and waves painting. Summer jobs..
The first of the Scotland dioramas I did, the second one was created one year later. One of my best seascapes so far compleet with lighting effects and rocky seashore yet again.
The little brother of the Sweden diorama. Different lattitudes and rocky shore and a nice blue sea.
Another one of my best seascapes because it’s simple and has a seagull. My epoxy resin work at its best.
There are lots of places in my mind where the land is bare and only populated by knee jerk reactions. Then some UFO of a news comes over. I discuss it with the Sandy Haired Girl and when she leaves, there are roads, libraries and pubs all over the place. I feel blessed knowing her
When I was working on references to model my set of windows last year , I came across that legion of Russian Instagramers who document endlessly crumbling wooden huts and churches, icy buildings up north. Checking month after month I realized that if you lend me their good drones and the means to travel at
This one was inspired both by a building not very far from my home and a picture I saw which was taken in Minsk – Belarus which showed such a building full of snow, the aim was to reproduce those snowy effects.
I used to have a friend living in Auckland New Zealand, she was living near mairangi Bay and kept on sending me beautiful pictures of the volcanic sand and the blue sea. For some reason i found it very hard to reproduce the exacts hues of that sea. Up to this day I don’t really
Every winter, countless of Russian bloggers seem to converge to t(hat special town called Vorkuta which is quite close to the polar circle. Lots of abandoned buildings with icicles coming out of the windows. Some buildings litteraly seem to be encrusted with ice, it’s really beautiful. As an add-on, I placed a bottle of Jagermeister
I used to feel pretty vacant. That is, not depressed or anything, just empty. Nothing positive or negative goes on in my mind, just a blind wish to keep on sculpting and painting without real aim or anything. Through that foggy mind of mine, I feel echoes of people that I miss and old situations
Most people I know are naturally more or less connected with their birth place. Most of the time it feels like no more than a tiny wire, it takes form of special feeding tastes, a slight accent or foods, the feeling like we have a Heimat at a very special place. But for some, this
