The most important thing I learned was that brushes weren't all that important. Gryspeerdt made his from cheap artists brushes and Maija still uses shaving brushes trimmed to a stag foot shape.

    wow - but the flight fare is devastating..
    EVERYTHING bought here in Dk is expensive..
    remember - a liter of petrol is now 1.65$....

    about the brushes. I don't really know how to use brushes... so I do with something else..
    (afraid to tell - are there special "rules" on what is right or not?

    Rules? What are they? Whatever works is my rule - even if one applies the ink with his/her fingers like a child's finger painting! :>)

    Cheers! Gene

    I was fortunate to know Norman Gryspeerdt and visited him at his home in Eastbourne. Norman generously gave me one of his original prints as well as a number of his personal books on bromoil. "I'll never crack the covers of these books again, Gene." "Take these," he said. "You can put them to use." What a nice, talented man he was! A giant of photography!

    Wow are they ever. I am floored by how well the technique works with the subject to make them so very expressive.

    Hi Gene,

    I am very happy to see your postings here. it is really good to hear from you. Has been a long time. Do you still have the place in Myrtle Beach?

    Bromoil is a fascinating process, capable of almost any kind of long a person may want, from fine grain and great detail to fully pictorial. I have only dabbled with it personally, but some years ago I wrote an introduction for a book on Schmide de las Heras, a pictorial photographer from A Coruña. The book was published by the Xunta de Galicia and contains some remarkable plates of Schmidt's bromoils, which were made in virtually every tone imaginable. I also cataloged the collection, which is owned by a good friend of mine from A Coruña, Jose Vázquez Caruncho, a great photographer in his own right who has published several books of photographs of Galicia. Jose was the god son of Schmidt, and inherited his collection of bromoil prints.

    One of the greatest bromoil workers of all time, from a purely technical perspective, was Joaquim Pla Janini from Barcelona. He produced some absolutely perfect bromoil transfers in very large sizes. Pla's work, unfortunately, is not very well known outside of Spain. A nice catalog of the work was published by the Fundacio la Caixa of Barcelona in 1996 after exhibitions in Barcelona, Tarragona and Palma.
