Success, they are terrific, John!
These are wonderful John- now of course I want to make a spider book- that must be the one in the Hedi Kyle book
Nolde is one of my most favourite painters. When he was forbidden to paint during WWII, he used watercolour because it doesn't smell and tiny scraps of paper or bits of old paintings. In time he used an epidiascope and could see (as you imagine in your post) how these tiny works would look huge. I even bought an epidiascope at great expense (then) but hit a snag when I didn't have the distance in my house to a blank wall so I could judge the effect of each size I tried! In the end I gave it to an art school where an 'old-fashioned' lecturer was pleased because he could throw up images from lots of different books during his talks without preparing a 'script' on a laptop. cr
