Oil Paintings in Dietro Aria Technique

See below three current paintings finished in the Dietro Aria technique. I think you have already read this "Dietro Aria" now a few times on my site and ask yourself what it actually means. I will discover a few information about this: I was also working on a reproduction of The Lady with the Ermine from Leonardo da Vinci. I was working on this painting, including the research I made for almost 2 years. I have been in Krakau, of course, to see the original. This project aims to make not only a replica - no, it goes further. I will paint the painting as near as possible to the original, but not how it looks now, but how it looked in 1500 when it was freshly painted.

But what has this all to do with Dietro Aria? You may ask yourself. Well, I am sure you know about the sfumato technique from Leonardo as a real art lover. Sfumato means something like foggy or blurred, hazy.

 

In my research on the painting of Leonardo da Vinci, The Lady with the Ermine, and above all in the very time-consuming work on this painting, which is made up of very many individual thin layers, I have learned a great deal about painting that goes beyond the Old Master technique. 

 

And only now, I understand the true genius of Leonardo`s painting technique because I have applied it on my own.

 

In the course, I have started to develop the technique of Leonardo, as far as this is possible at all, and the original idea of Leonardo da Vinci, namely that there is a layer of air between the object and the viewer, which influences the picture and the picture impression, further developed.

 

This technique, which I have now newly developed and applied with my own secret oil mixture, has "painted layers of air" between the individual layers of paint so that a unique effect is achieved. I call this technique "Behind Air" or in recognition of the Italian genius that inspired me, "Dietro Aria".

Dietro Aria is a very time-consuming painting method due to the many layers. It makes it possible to achieve a kind of precision with simultaneous relative blurriness that is similar to natural vision. Each work, therefore, takes at least six to twelve months to complete, as the drying of the individual layers takes a considerable amount of time, and due to the secret painting medium, which contains no toxic solvents, corresponding drying times are required.

Unfortunately, it is challenging to photograph this technique, as the depth of field is partially lost in the photo.

Nevertheless, you can get a first impression here.

God bless you
