Creation of

The creation of this painting is shown in seven pixtures.


1) First I'm beginning with a wide flat-brush and one color with quick and unconcentrated lines by chance.


2) Next I apply a second and third layer of colour in the same manner.


3) The background colours are often applied like watercolours or rubbed with a cloth.  New colour areas are added. They are related to the already existing surfaces, form contrasts, colour tones or have an accompanying function.


4) Important shapes are bordered by dark, often black lines in order to be highlighted.


5-7) The play with forms, colours, lines and background continues until I feel that the composition is sufficient.  Two or three hours, sometimes weeks, pass.
