The Times of The Day

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.

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.

These paintings are available directly online as Giclee print in many different dimensions, on paper, canvas or metal, and also as greeting cards.
