while i write this new shortfilm, i need to let go of steam every now and then
consider this painting 'steam.' painted fast without any real intention of quality

this is supposed to be the improved version of a painting i posted earlier.
hope u liked it, i polished up my photoshopskills

im trying something different here,
something more thought-out, not so much different.
being thought out as it is, its not finished. but nevertheless its already becoming interesting, i feel.

July 24, 2008

two works today
the faces painting isnt quite finished yet, i put some work in it and im still not happy
the other one, the landscape isnt more then a simple scetch, of my home-village at night.
nothing special

July 23, 2008

two more paintings,
like before, based on scetches from my scetchbook.
im not 100% happy with the jester painting. but i decided to post it anyway.
im quite happy with the other one. a couple of females, crowded around a performing group of musicians.

woman in a red coat

i've also posted it on the other blogsite, gentschetst.blogspot.com since its an edited version of a scetch i made. me and a friend of mine were both stunned by redcoated beauty standing by the side of the podium. i drew het in my scetchbook, and so did robbert(the friend).
i suppose automatov tried to preserve the impression by painting her

i tried to make some more pictures of earlier work, but the batteries of my camera ran low

July 21, 2008

some new pictures of the hubert series. its fun doing it. not the freestyle loose-wrist painting i usually do, but (for once) solely based on colour and shapes. i paint these things reasonably fast, about 1h and a half per board, but im in trance while working on em. i love bending over and focussing on this form of detail.

these are some more tests
plain old tests, men with glasses
i like glasses, they tend do give the wearer some form of identity.
and its an easy way to start acting with something thats easily accepted
alot of people wear glasses

automatov doesn't though
hes got perfect vision,

this is the last post for the day
automatov petrov has been quite enthousiastic,
but i need some moderation in posting these things
this is a tiny landscape, painted slightly bigger then a postcard.
influences are, i suppose, per kirkeby and some sketches of courbet


this is something automatov painted after browsering through illustration webpages and noticing all the bunnies. theyre a bit of a cliche, really. this is a tiny idea, entirely constructed while working. its called 'hubert keeps going forward'
specifically based for children, i suppose

now this, this is something special.
its a sketch for my new film,
i'll tell the story some other time.

after bonnard

loosely based on a painting made by pierre bonnard
the sole purpose was study
this is my new blog

since graduation i have been forced to move back home. since the production of my short-film has finished, since alot of friends live far far away, and since im a busy-bee, i have been painting like a maniac.

i've always been addicted to paint,
and its getting to mythological proportions

i do want to share what im doing,
in these paintings u'll find alot of things. some are about develloping a new film.
others are just tests, manierisms to outlet my painted frustration.
see, it's the world worst secret i want to become a painter, hopefully make some money out of it.
hopefully soon.

i do advise to watch a few sites while u're at it.
www.erszebet.com, a brochure site from my recently finished shortfilm
www.gentschetst.blogspot.com, a bunch of friends and me post sketches made in ghent.

many regards, enjoy my work
