6 chameleons - Wip


Here are the first initial steps of my new watercolor painting.
The composition had 5 chameleons in my thumbnail drawing, but drawing freehand, not measuring strictly on the watercolor paper left space for the 6.th animal, so I go for that.
I intend to leave pencilstrokes on both animals and the measuring lines, as I personally love to look at those when other artists leave them in their work. It gives a feeling of seeing the whole process in the finished painting.
I also find such crisp pencil-lines works great with watercolors.

Working again

After more than a month of doing very little art, I am finally starting up again. I did a few abstracts, but  getting ready and starting up abstracts vs more realistic pieces is a big difference.
This piece will be what I call coloristic realism, where I do not work to achieve photorealism, but recognizable animals with lots of colors.

I have started drawing in pencil for a pencil/watercolor piece. I have a favorite in oblong formats, but the motif of cause have to suit the size, and it is not the easiest of formats.

I am going to tackle a collage composition, not a familiar set-up for me, but a great challenge. It will be 5 chameleons. Even they will not be connected (thats the challenge of a collage), they of cause, have to work in the over-all compositon.

I have no pics yet, but will post soon. The picture above shows an earlier painting, "chamelion II",  from my series Chameleons. I am a bit facinated of chameleons.

DK:

Efter mere end en måned, hvor jeg har lavet meget lidt kunst, er jeg endelig startet op igen. Jeg har lavet et par abstrakte ting, men at gøre klar og komme igang med abstrakt vs realistisk - der er stor forskel.
Dette maleri skal være, hvad jeg kalder koloristisk realisme, hvor jeg ikke arbejder på at opnå fotorealisme, men genkendelige dyr med masser af farver.

Jeg er begyndt at tegne med blyant til et blyant/akvarelmaleri. Jeg elsker aflange formater, men motivet er selvfølgelig nødt til at passe til proportionerne, og det er ikke det nemmeste af formater.

Jeg skal tackle collage sammensætning, ikke et velkendt set-up for mig, men en stor udfordring. Det vil være 5 kamæleoner. Selv vil de ikke vil være direkte forbundet (det er den store udfordring med en collage), skal de selvfølgelig virke sammen i helheden.

Jeg har ingen billeder endnu, men tilføjer snart. Billedet ovenover viser et tidligere maleri, "chamelion II",  fra serien Chameleons. Jeg er lidt facineret af kamæleoner.

Intuitive painting




I am experimenting these days. This is an intuitive painting in the sense that I had no plans ahead; no composition, no colorscheme, no idea what would happen. I just followed my impulses.

This is very different from how I usually work, and is both fun, liberating and scary. But working in acrylics, the possibility for changes are good. The scary part is that I am so much out of my comfort-zone!

Of cause as it developed I went for colors that fit together, a balanced composition and figures and shapes I found fun to paint. The title came half finished: "Life is in a seed".

My love for lines can not be denied, as you can see in closeup image.

Unfortunately the colors are not quite perfect on-line, but close.

Acrylic on canvas. 40x40 cm.

DK:

Jeg eksperimenterer i disse dage. Dette er et intuitivt maleri i den forstand, at jeg havde ingen planer til at starte med, ingen komposition, ingen farver valgt, ingen idé om, hvad der ville ske. Jeg fulgte bare mine impulser.

Dette er meget forskelligt fra, hvordan jeg arbejder normalt, og det er både sjovt, befriende og skræmmende. Men ved at arbejde i akryl, er mulighederne for ændringer gode. Det skræmmende er at være så meget ude af min komfort-zone.

Selvfølgelig, som det udviklede sig, valgte jeg farver der passer sammen, en afbalanceret sammensætning og figurer og former, jeg fandt sjove at male. Titlen kom halvvejs i maleriet: "Life is in a seed"..

Min kærlighed for streger fornægter sig ikke, som du kan se i closeup billedet.

Desværre er farverne ikke helt korrekte on-line, men tæt på.
