A painting called “Storm”

And it has been a storm …
I had just one canvas that i did not use yet, and so i tried to start painting about a week ago. It had been nearly a year ago that i made a painting so the start was not so easy.
The paint, and the colours went everywhere, but i just did not get the result that i wanted. The painting had no body, so i carried on and on and on…
The classic moment came when i decided to take a sponge over the whole painting creating a background of different colours, and from there on i started a whole new composition on the canvas.
The result was this acrylic painting on canvas with some stormy effects.
I called it “Storm”
The panting is made on a stretched canvas on a wooden frame 60×70 cm.

Here are some pictures from the whole painting as well as some more detailed views of the canvas.

The painting is now available for our flemish readers at:

Eruption

This painting i called Eruption.
It feels like a deep impression going from the middle of the painting and working is way to the outside.
Many eruptions in the whole painting and lots of structure.
The painting is made on a canvas 50×70 cm and i streched on a wooden frame, ready to hang.
After the painting was dry i gave it a coating of 2 layers of varnish.
It’s a handmade painting, one of a kind.

Ignasius

One of my latest paintings i made on 4 small canvasses that i had just laying around.
And i decided that i wanted to make a painting in other colours than i usualy do, so i started painting blue and bright colours over 4 canvassen laying next to each-other.
I used different techniques, scraping and circles and freehand on this one, creating a painting where there is a lot going on.
I call it “Ignasius” and it’s 80×60 cm in total

Going Nowhere

The next canvas became just “out of nowhere” because that’s just what happened.
I was painting different colours on this 3D-canvas  50×50 cm and it was just going nowhere.
Using different colours brown, green till i needed to take a sponge and déléte what i made. That instantly changes the image and after using some scraping-tools this was the final result.
A sort of chocolate painting with different stripes.
