Fire and water create amazing fire drawings

Artist Paul Chojnowski‘s work impresses solely by the method the artist uses to create these amazing drawings. The artist works on wood, textiles and paper, and makes use of handheld torches and water to create these super amazing drawings. Paul dips watercolor paper in water, soaking each part to a different level of wetness. He then takes a torch to the wet paper so the paper gets slightly tinged or burnt.

Wetter areas on the image are slower to burn, so they remain of a lighter tone while drier areas can char to black. Of course, even a single mistake can lead to the entire paper being burnt up. Wood seems like a much easier medium to work with, and the artist makes brilliant use of the texture to include it in the drawings themselves.
