I’ve done a lot of different digital paintings over the years.
Often in series of two or three paintings.
But I haven’t really found a clear direction I want to move towards.
Something that binds them all together, despite their dissimilarities.
So I started to think about what I enjoy painting.
And what I want to depict through them.
And the answer was clear.
I want a rawness.
A bit of chaos.
Yet, deep down, it needs some quality.
My best effort at details and technique.
So I took some of my paintings, and decided to try to add it.
So this is how they looked before:
And this is how they look now:
I like how they look a bit messier now.
A bit more worn.
Like they’ve been marked by the nature they depict.
And with a bit more depth.
At the same time, I think the new colours make them look warmer.
So I’ll keep moving in this directon.
With a more clear expression.
But, yet, a lot of freedom.
And, by the way, I’ve uploaded a few videoes, showing the process of making the paintings from start to finish.
