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
Just finished this one. hope you like it,crits welcome
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.
