The boy with the golden balloon !

My abstract process “Boy with the golden balloon”


This paintings has the title “Boy with the golden balloon”
A sweet story about a little boy and his golden balloons.
The painting are currently hanging in Nicolai Kjerschow´s apartment. And its produced in 2010. So its an older painting of mine.
But definitely the most asked for.

Here you have the painting in process:

1.  The paint in this painting i applied straight on. Without mixing it, this was in my second year of art school.

For me now this is a big no-no. I always prefer mixing the colours. So they will harmonise better.

The way i applied the paint was by pouring it straight onto the canvas, with thin paint. Letting it dry for one of two minutes. Before I start splashing clean water on top.

When the spots has been drying for a bit but not all the way, i apply dry paper. Or just dry it of with a clean tablecloth.

3. When this is done, you can see the spots around on the painting showing the former layer underneath.

Many times i work with either contrasts over and under each other in this way.

When I have a bright yellow underneath i let it dry. Then i apply a wormer and darker yellow on top. f.eks.

With this combination you will see the bright vibrant yellow shining through the wormer layer of yellow on top.

Closeups of the painting:

Here in the closeups, you can see the spots and the layers applied. With small simplified illustrations. As an extra touch to the painting.

  1. Thats great that you say that, because a few days ago when I was painting again for the exhibition. I felt that i needed to do this technique to get back to the style that I needed.
    You will defenatly see more of this kind of work later on when I have spare time. =)
