Painting The Times of The Day
This gallery features a series of mainly watercolour and gouache landscapes paintings of the different times of the day. It is about how the world out there looks like from dawn to nightfall.
If I could, I would never sleep! I would love to be up from dawn to nightfall, and from nightfall to dawn again, 24 hours a day witnessing our world outside, the changes of colours and atmosphere. There was a time in my life when I had not the freedom of an independent artist, and had to get up very early in the morning, when it was still dark, and go to work. Although it was quite tough, I did love to witness the darkness evolving into light, and the world gradually coming alive. In these moments I understood on a very basic level how our life on earth is only possible thanks to the sun…
Sometimes, when I need to relax, I just take a sheet of beautifully structured watercolour paper and spread some wide brushes of watercolours on it, letting the colours flow freely into each other and into the structure of the paper. The result is often a soft, dreamy landscape with wonderful “wet on wet” effects. I have put some of them together in this “Times of The Day” series.
The paintings presented in this gallery- and many more!- are available directly online as Giclee print in many different dimensions, on paper or canvas, and also as greeting cards, in my “Times of The Day” FAA Gallery. Please press the button below to access it.
The Giclee prints from the above mentioned Online shop are manufactured in the USA and sent directly to the client from there. For personal or financial reasons it might not be appropriate for everybody to order their prints in the USA. Also, you might prefer to purchase my Giclee prints hand-signed. If so, you can alternatively order directly from me. Simply contact me indicating which painting you are interested in and in which size. Go to Goodaboom Boutique to see a guideline of pricing for different dimensions.
I do love this collection, many of the paintings having some kind of purity, due to the transparency of the watercolours , but also to their random and free character. I have often noticed, that if I try to work on them afterwards, adding or changing something which I think could be better, I just spoil them.
