Hi all! I hope you are hanging in there in the midst of this very challenging time! Luckily we are not very affected here in Norway, so for me life is just about normal except for when I need to go shopping, which I don’t like doing anyways! So, here is the last weeks work, starting with 2 on the clarify stage, they will be pushed till higher key, slowly and thoughtfully! The next set of 7 is the result of me mixing too much medium and clear gesso for another project. In kind of a panic, I just got hold of some plywood boards, squeezed out a little Cyan, a little Yellow and some Transparent Yellow Iron Oxide because these bottles were closest at hand and started new play in a hurry hurry hurry, which was absolutely not planned and therefore double fun! In other words, not a drop of medium was spilled, but instead I have a lot of new play stages to pile up with all the rest of the play stages waiting for me 😅🙃😱🤪
Clarifying “Purple engineering I and II”. I’ve been working with these two for some time now, and I do feel they are close to finished, just need to leave them for a little while, and see them with fresh eyes. (The colors are brighter in flesh, will try to take new pics tomorrow.)
CLARIFYING These two “Purple Engineering” paintings.
I love to finally proceed in cwo after rather many many rounds of acrylics and crayons, sanding and scraping and playing on the surfaces.
The quest for finding what I love is continuously ongoing, and for each piece I learn more about that, and about how to achieve it.
Also, I must say that having got a new furry studio pal is such a gift, we are slowly coming to terms with who is in charge of papers and tools, even the tissue papers, which I guess ought to be me in the end… =)
FINISHED (for now at least)
I found both paintings too screamingly colorful, so have tried to calm them down further. I believe I want to give the “Explorers” a few bright yellow pops to cheer them up though, before I send them out alone on their journey!
First painting: “Explorers”
Second painting: “Conducting the Past”
FAUVISM exploring/clarifying. Now I’ve applied cold wax to these two color shots, don’t know quite where they will go yet, but images inside the images are starting to evolving, so perhaps I’ll just play along 🤔🙃🤓
