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

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.

Orange


appr 4x4" oil on paper
I am happy with the painting here maybe the best orange I did, it stil remains somehow to adjust the paint quality, maybe it gets less glossy with more drying

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
