Bay and coast

6x7 inch oil on paper
There is a little problem with the paint quality, which does not appear from the photo it will dry fine though else I am happy with the work. The landsape could be from many places. very helpfull to work with black and white which get me faster into to the imagination. the inspiration to this comes from some work I once did making socalled notan paintings an inch only and often has wondered if it could stand the test in a larger work. I have a couple more on the way also one with color.

Orange on grey

appr 7.5x7.5 inch
Painted from a reference photo began with a toned ground and went onto the lightest part that I gave some white waited to later in the day to finish it. I like to use a permanent yellow which I find better over white combined with a dark cadmium yellow  and for the darker part it is a pyrol orange

Appr 7x7 inch oil on paper

Abstract coloristic

7x8 inch oil on paper
Continued from the one in the previous post, my efforts with the abstract is to find new ways, I am a bit bored or lack ideas with realism, though I have learned most about paint from it and I have not given it up maybe combine the two at some time. I strive to use color as pure as possible, think that was the idea of the impressionism.

abstract landscape morning

appr 2x5 inch oil on primed paper

A little more here than in the previous post,the light in it reminds of a nice summer morning, hopefully a little step further in my striving with abstract. I am crazy with dry brush and the vibration soft edges and shaopes it creates, the paper is prepared with both modelling paste and some oil based priming I make myself - so got a bit out of all my efforts with the texture project.

Bicyclepath Jægersborg

6x8 " oil oil on board
Here again mostly directly applied no more that it can be a bit altered afterwards like the pavement edge. I often go this way in the opposite direction to make a shortcut, I think in this case it is allowed.
It is runnuing beside a small highway here it soon ends in a cross not far fom the path to Ermelunden then after the cross continues up north.

Path to Ermelunden summer

Appr 6x8" oil on board
So got around something, I am using one of those boards with the texture layer from the experiments that got much better, have not posted yet. I have not painted a long time and said to myself work as simple as possible, just mix and apply directly and have fun,
difficult to say what Ermelunden is kind of a stretch of a meadow like nature on the city border where I live.

Still life with an apple

appr 6x6" oil on stretched canvas

reflections from the window and the glass on the apple, things were set aside a bit accidentially, and made a nice composition. I worked directly on the canvas without any preparation of texture,

Lemon cropped study

Appr 3.5x3.5" oil on canvas paper
I am happy with the paint quality and finish here, I have applied many layers, beginning with ironoxide red for the dark part, it sticks to the surface and dry very fast so I just apply something approximative, let it dry to have this to begin with, frrom here I cant tell what I do else than it is work with values and tones saturation cool warm and hue shift,
It is based on three cad yellows lemon light and a darker.

texture study

I have been busy a long time now with building a texture layer, just so many possibilities,  some examples - first one is closest to some works I have seen from the baroque,
with nr1 is a heavy layer that has dried some time before creating the texture, nr 2 is a work into the paint at once the paint in the two techniques is a bit different
