It feels so good, that the figurative work is back in my artistic life. In my landscapes I’m interested in a quite realistic way with realistic colours, whereas in the figurative work I love to use completely different colours and a different technique. I don’t blend as much as I do in my other work.
Eva in the bath still keeps me on the hook and I again realize how amazing the photoshooting in France was. There are still many more pictures to come.
While painting I realized why I love painting so much. It all comes down to this very moment, when you put down a color and something inside you klicks into place, some very intense moment of perception. It’s very hard to put into words.
A singer ones told me that it seems to be comparable when one feels the sound of a note deep inside.
