Clarifying, final touches

This is one more of my paintings in the “Memory Fragments” series. After many many rounds of glazing, sanding and glazing again, I finally begin for feel that this one is close to finished, just a few tweaks here and there before it is ready for the frame 😊

“HAVING A BALL” work under progress

Clarifying, editing, checking values, checking shapes, colors, marks and pops of saturation. This painting has gone through some total transformations, it really is strange, I started a series of 7 landscapes a while ago, but as I’ve been working with glazing and sanding and glazing again to get depths and light into my work, it just said stop! I believe working with landscapes, even if abstracted, makes me very restrained and tensed in my approach, at least in the end it does. So this series will be high key and abstract instead!Here is the first one, still under progress but getting pretty close to finished I believe. All comments are very appreciated, may I ask for your first impression? Title so far: “HAVING A BALL”

“Somewhere south would be nice” work under progress.

This painting is almost finished, I love to play with these rectilinear shapes, houses can be so much, they can contain so much and say so much about the builder and mean so much for the viewer. The next moves on this painting will be to keep the values in check, and to add some more details, yet without loosing the looseness and atmosphere. A bit of tweaking and hopefully this one will soon be ready for framing.

Abstracted Landscape, work under progress

This painting is still in explore stage, which means that I am taking risks, taking drastic steps, trying out ideas, am scratching, applying, subtracting while wet. Then sanding, and more layers, more sanding, scratching and so forth. I find this stage to be the most challenging of them all, when the mind must be open and quickly be responding to these changes, when I must dare to loose, to paint over what I loved, in order to achieve a more interesting expression further down the way.
