At the moment I mainly paint for this project
"Dancing with Sword" Photography
with myself as "Model" and Markus Haberfellner (Haberfellner Photography)
It was amazing and a pleasure to work with Markus on a collection of
pictures with myself and my weapons.
"Battle of Fulford" (original original by Matthew Paris -Monk 1200 – 1259)
Painted with egg Tempera (the way artists used to paint in the middle ages).
I painted a design for the HEMA and Charity event "Frauentage Schwerttage"
"Dark Knight and Light" Series
This will be a little Acrylic Painting collection with
Armoury and Weapons in Black and White.
HEMA Charity Event "Fight against Depression 2019" with Tremonia Fechten has been taken place August 2019.
This is an exercise for the next big acrylic painting I am planning. It will have the theme
"Rapier", "Historical Fencer(s)" and "Old town". I have already some ideas and I am currently experimenting with different materials to make my next very big painting Project.
Project "Ultima Custodia"
Modern Translation and extensive Interpretation of the Royal Armouries Ms I.33 Towerfechtbuch.
This project is created by Michael Lammer, Bettina Miriam Sehner and the Sword and Buckler group of the HEMA Club INDES Graz (www.indes.at).
... is making the medieval way of fencing with sword and buckler attainable for both those interested in history and martial arts.
To achieve this we have decided to create a book in German and English.
Art and Design
The scans of the original Fechtbuch set the stage for our translation and put it into context. Additional sketches, drawings and other artwork for our project are created by Bettina Miriam. By implementing her detailed drawings into the interpretive chapters we avoid using photos.
Medium and Content
Books are timeless and look nice. They are easy to use in class, to read during commuting or to show to your friends. This is why we have decided to create a book for sharing our work. Ultima Custodia will be available in a very limited edition.
Part I of our work will contain a translation of the MS I.33 in modern language, a detailed interpretation of its text and illustrations from the swordfighter’s point of view.
Part II will be an interpretation of the basic concepts and techniques. This will allow you an easy application in your own martial arts training following the path of the Tower Fechtbuch MS I.33.
The Royal Armouries Manuscript I.33 (Walpurgis Fechtbuch, Towerfechtbuch)
The MS I.33 is the oldest known treatise on duel-like combat. It is dated to around 1300. This richly illustrated manuscript contains 32 double sided parchment sheets or folii. Its content is mainly written in Middle Latin language. Words specific to his system of Sword and Buckler fencing were left in the mother tongue of the author, i.e. in Middle High German. In an assortment of "Plays", the Priest Luitger teaches his unnamed student as well as Walpurgis the art of fencing. These plays illustrate the application of specific techniques or concepts of fighting in this highly refined way.
"Repaing of an Illustration out of the famous Morgan Bible
This Project is a commission work and will be a as close as possible repainting of an Illustration out of the famous Morgan bible (also Crusader Bible, Maciejowski Bible). Information: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Morgan_Bible
The painting will be made with black ink, layers of eggtempera in different techniques, bronze Pigments, white ink and after a while a varnish finish. I was thinking about using real gold leaf but the results with light bronze pigments are more than sufficient enough (moreover pricing does matter).
"Dancing with Sword" Photography
For this project I worked together with Markus Haberfellner from Haberfellner Photography to create amazing pictures from a woman (in this case myself) with her weapons in motion. Pictures will be available in my Folder "HEMA Photography".
Frauen Schwerttage 2020
Another Charity and HEMA event I have painted a design for. The earnings from buying a product with this design will be donated to "Frauennothilfe Deutschland".
HEMA Charity Event
"Fight against Depression 2019"
HEMA CHARITY EVENT: Fight Against Depression 2019 by Tremonia Fechten (supported by Blade and Swords)
The aim of this event is to collect donations for "Stiftung deutsche Depressionshilfe", a charitable foundation to help people, suffering from depression.
This event is over and we can say it has been a huge success. It achieved a four-digit amount of donations.
Congratulations to Tremonia Fechten and all the people and clubs supporting it.
