    New Stuff Updated 1st July

    I've got the feeling like ..., how shall I put it, like I'm really ON to something here, with this method of painting, something new, at least for me it is. I'm still using gouache, on canvas now but it might aswell 've been wood. Still starting with a big brush and go cuckoo at first, then start seeing something in it and detail the hell out of it. But this time I started with several mid-tone colors and let them play with each other before starting to put any kind of detail, shadow or light on it. Accidently, while splattering drops on it, one fell on a place where it might have been an eye and suddenly it looked like a creature. Still it's just as freaky when I turn the canvas either way. I'm so excited by this discovery.
    By the way: I put new images on top of the thread, not at the bottom. Personally whenever I look at an updated thread it kind of irritates me to have to find the update somewhere at the bottom

    Made this one last week It's a bit more graphical then I'm used to, came out a bit too tight though. Next one will be more organically wild with some graphic elements as a contrast. It's gouache on canvas 50 x 70 cm

    Been a while since I last posted, life coming in between or whatever. Still having fun with gouache, mostly on wood. Mostly having no idea beforehand, letting the proces dictate the process. It works for me anyhow. Whether it's any good I leave open to critic, to suggestions, to abuse. Finally having an exhibition again for the first time in 7 years, a group exhibition in Amsterdam.

    Very interesting images. I think i like the first one the best. There is something very organic about them. Something that reminds me of adventuring into the human body.

    Can you tell us anything more about them? Do they have titles?

    I enjoy the first and the last ones, The contrasting organic shapes. Nice style really. Reminds me of Wayne Barlowe.

    Interesting shapes and designs.My favourites are 2nd and last one.
    Personally i'm not very fond with the color choices,i think more desaturated and monochromatic would suit these better.

    A bit too surrealistic/abstract for my taste but definitly excellent rendering. Also reminds me of Giger, not that it's a bad thing

    Yummie....I love the organic visionary madness, reminds me a bit of Robert Venosas work. The first and last one are probably my favorites. Keep up the crazyness man!

    Brothers, and Sisters,

    This looks nothing like Wayne Douglas Barlowe's awesome interpretation of Jack Bird Hell!

    Reminds me of the inner workings of a flu shank -- post sand people take down -- the first image that is.

    The second feels to me like a dimensional "captivator ring," or "Calvin hook," described in that book about wild "green worlds," by that dude who wrote Bladerunner. I think the book is called, Folding Emerald Flames, or some Earl of bring it kind of deal.

    Thanx everyone for the comments
    They don't have titles, apart from the filenames I had to give them. They're really just doodles, no prior concept, no direction it needs to go. I'm really flattered by the references to Giger and Barlowe, they have been great influences in their own unique way. I just love the organic stuff, am planning to mix it a bit more with technological elements, bio-organics. Then again, I can plan something but that doesn't mean a thing. It still goes the way it goes.
