I’ve been working on this one oil painting for weeks now and I still can’t finish it.
I like the bright primary colours and the texture created by adding some sand to the paints…
I’ve always wanted to try oil painting and now I just got a bunch of colours and gave it a try.
To make the abstract paintings more interesting I added some pieces of scrap paper with gel medium and a bit of texture using very fine sand.
Oil painting is a very difficult medium but the colours are so bright and beautiful…
I haven’t had much time recently for printmaking but I made these linocuts. The forms are quite simple but I liked to print them in different colour variations.
There are several ways to create prints without a printing press and since I don’t have one at the moment I like to experiment with different printmaking techniques. Monotype prints are easy to make. I used sponge rubber as a printing plate on which I applied linocut colour because acrylic colour doesn’t really work for printing. Then I put a piece of handmade paper on the plate and drew on it with the back of a pencil. It did not always work but these pieces turned out quite nice.
