Two more paintings in progress.

It is always so exciting to try out new ideas, and what is better than playing with shapes on leftover-paint boards as I have done in the upper piece. Or trying to let all the tiny bits meet in a greenish large shape as I in the lower piece. (The title on the lower painting will be: “Putting on the thinking hat” by the way.) Where these will end up in the end, is still in the blue, except that they will not be blue =)

“IT WAS NOT ALL DARK”

FINISHED PAINTING, COLD WAX AND OIL PAINTS, MIXED MEDIA

“It was not all dark”

Playing with left-over paints. Cold wax and oil paints on board.

It’s something with the recklessness in this approach which really appeals to me. It’s a unpredictable way of playing, with different palettes over a long period of time. The neutral grays act as calming and binding factors when I try to try to tidy this busy mess up.
