Sometimes I spend a whole day in the study, like yesterday, and "ruin" 3 big paintings.... "ruin" means, it didn´t come out what should have come out so I have to start again thinking about them and following the new direction they take... this sometimes leaves me frustrated and feeling like I am a hopeless painter, not getting anywhere... but in process orientated painting it´s always like "if you fail, fail again, but fail better" and in the end after playing around on paper for a while I had this little one to console me and keep going on... .
The painting shines and sparkles a lot when hit by light. There is a turquoise color in the waves that I can´t catch with my camera, so the colors my differ slightly depending on monitors and light.
10x20 cm, watercolor, metallic pigments and gouache (mixed media) on paper. Comes mounted with mat, 20x30 cm, ready to be put in a frame, signed and titled on mat.
You can choose a different size of matte of course and put the painting in a bigger frame if you like, any framer can do that. If you need any advice on that, just ask.
