I see a lot of fascinating lineair patterns. Often very complicated, sometimes very structured. They catch my attentionand come back in paintings. I start with random scribbles and let the larger pattern evolve out of that. Growing from chaos to structure. Just like life itself, when you live there are so many details that you can't notice them all and don't know what it is all about, but when you look back you see the bigger lines and the coherence of the details.
But there is more into lines which attracts me. I will have to study them more precisely, not only intuitively.
The first one is a +- 40 x 50cm. of earth pigments in egg tempera on paper.
The second is earth and plant pigments on canvas, size +- 70 x70 cm
The third is acrylic on canvas and is just a detail from a large canvas which is still unfinished. I will post that one again once finished to show the pocess. I have been working on it for several days now and it keeps changing.
I also did several experiments with tempera as it still is my preferred painting material but I noticed that it doesn't go well with the canvas I have available here. It probably needs another gesso. Because new layers easily let the former ones dissolve and slip away. I prefer the egg tempera because it give a more natural feeling to the painting it becomes like a kind of skin and it breathes. The acrylic is nice because some colours are very transparent and they are bright and playful and in the movements you can bring the feeling of nature but when you touch it, you feel it is totally artificial and just some more plastic of which we have already way too much. But I do it because I learn new things about painting.
