Hello all,

looks like I post with the seasons, though my last entry was over a year ago. Gee, and I´m still not the wiser, what a pity ;-)

I don´t know if it has to do with what happend during the last months (mainly nothing exciting, just all-day-life), but I´ve returned to using light and obviously gay colours, layering them upon my canvasses to achieve a sense of depth. It´s been a while since I´ve actually used anything darker than Paynes Grey (charcoal doesn´t count)and I´m fine with it. It´s a challenge to build up shadows and plasticity with shades of blue, red and whatever else resides on my palette. I also have become accustomed to paint with pigments (mixed with acrylic binder) instead of tube colours, the difference is immense once you´ve seen the brightness of the pigments. Granted, they are rather more expensive, but it´s worth it.

Currently I work with:

Zinc white (PW 4)
Titanium white (PW 6)
Cadmium yellow lemon (PY 35)
Vermilion Red (PR 255)
Ultramarine Blue deep (PB 29)
Indigo (PB 66)
Phtalo Blue (PB 15:3)
Bohemian green earth (PG 23)
Chromium oxide green brilliant (PG 18)
Yellow Ochre (Py 43)
Pozzuoli earth (PR 101)
Caput mortuum deep (PR 101)
Black iron oxide (PBk 11)

All of these are Schmincke colours, but since their quality is very good, they are recommendable.

I really enjoyed your gallery, especially your use of colour and the somewhat minimalistic, yet realistic way you draw the human form!

Your works are pretty awesome.... Pretty awesome to me- who started to think for a few days that is 'Abstract Art' really art or an excuse to be a bad artist? I thought and I searched and discussed and now.. Your works show skill and are more towards the figurative side.... gonna Watch+ your works from now on...
