A not so Still Life

my first oil painting in 15 years

This painting on canvas in the size of 36″x 24″ (inch) is my first oil painting in 15 years. It marks somewhat of a turning point in my work. Here I would like to share a bit of the process with you – in individual images.

I work from small pencil drawings/sketches which I draw. These distinct geometric and organic shapes have become my signature through the years. After the initial sketch I construct and draw out the whole sketch in colored soft pastel on canvas and the last stage would be the painting in oil over the pastel.

All the materials I use are organic and natural now.
