Although time was limited due to a full schedule the past two months I managed to finish two large paintings! They had been 'sleeping' in my studio for almost a year.
First I planned to have the paintings finished before a new upcoming exhibition in Gent, Belgium at The Holliday Inn Hotel there. But later on I realised the sizes of the paintings exceed the available space there. So I'll keep them in the Mr. Upside Gallery in Voorburg, The Netherlands.
Artwork 'Working Day'
One painting (shown above) was inspired by a working day at a office. I choose its name 'Working Day' because of the dense, more 'connected' part in the bottom left part and the parts that depict more human elements.
The painting is not as colorful as previous ones because I investigated a more timid, less 'excitement'-style. One advantage of using a more toned-down color scheme is that it fits more easily in different interiors.
Artwork 'Bits and pieces'
The second painting took a while to get its current balance, both in color and shape. The first setup was extremely rough and I felt the need to take the time to correct the spaces between the lines and the thickness of the lines themselves.
Although I still haven't found the ultimate balance and my newest works contain longer, more structured lines, I am quite happy with how this painting worked out. Just like the painting in the upper part of this blogpost, I used a more toned-down, earthly color scheme.
