Living room

These two paintings were made 21 of October 2010 during a theme evening of Interior view. I had contemplated about using a photo with a nice model on a sofa or something but I gave up that. That is for later! Instead I chose this living room. It turned out to be harder than I had anticipated. At least that is how I remember it.

The first painting I made was done on a flat paper. That paper has no grain at all. I have made some fantastic paintings on that paper but this time I was not delighted.

In the second painting that evening I used a paper with grain. Unfortunately I was running out of time so I had to be quicker and that is not a good thing on architectural motives. Patience is better.

The photo of this living room originates from an interior photo from the house 'De Elbe' in Maassluis the Netherlands.

Here on this site I let you see my creations.
