Sorry for the size and the ugly sign but is sad to see my work used by others, in any way :faint:

40 x 40 cm
Oil/acrylic on canvas
2009

This is totally different from my usual (except maybe exercise 3) and I'm kind of insecure, so your comments and critiques will be welcome...

Wow. This is very powerful! It really surprised me, it's a lot different from your usual work. :)
I love the way you use the red here, it's perfectly in balance. Which isn't easy with such an aggressive colour. The dark edge on the lower red part does a very good job on the balance, as does the white.
I like how you placed the whitest part just a bit beside the middle, attracting the eye and making the composition a lot more interesting. The red spots manage to keep it very dynamic at the same time.
You usually paint more in the blue/green range of colours, so this is a very different but very good new approach :) I would love to see more like this!

You, my friend, are painting that inner thing. All your works are dancing around this thing. Red is no stranger to you.
([link])

You are always tied to the hint of landscape. The underwater thing just adds an unworldly effect which allows ME (the viewer) to know you are showing me a visual of inner world.

I know alot of your work is inspired from real underwater photography and experience but you are still dancing around something poetic, personal and not fully defined.

I like how you handled the paint. Soft, blended white and underpainting. The dark (black) tones set up gravity and horizon. The red softly (blurry) gently added

BUT THEN

Crisp RED Textures that seem applied with knife or by tranfer like with a monoprint technique.

This has no hand made mark look. Helps the unworldly look of it.

I like the hinted vertical black(dark) marks that implie perspective and vanishing point.

But none of it is rigidly landscape or perspective or distance. A little mental flip and its all just paint and reads as nonfigurative nothing.....open for interpretation.

someones private place.

very nice, I love red and it doesn't distract or distort the scene you've created:clap:

Thanks! I am always insecure about changing from my usual comfort zone but it's good to find out it works :D
