MINIATURES / HANDMADE PAPER 3

The more I paint on it the more I love this handmade paper. It feels so effortless to paint on it… and in this tiny format you can create a picture in few minutes. I am just translating motifs I painted before into a smaller scale and try to reduce them more than I could on the large sheets. It is kind of practicing… but most of it is just relaxing.

Je mehr ich darauf male um so mehr liebe ich dieses handgemachte Papier. Es fühlt sich so mühelos an, darauf zu malen… und in diesem kleinen Format kann man innerhalb weniger Minuten ein Bild malen. Ich übersetze Motive, die ich schon zuvor gemalt habe in das kleine Format und versuche, sie dabei noch mehr auf das wesentliche zu reduzieren, als mir das in den größeren Formaten gelungen ist. Es ist eine Art von Übung… aber zu allererst pure Entspannung.

  1. lovely! you know, one of things I notice and love about your work, is your brushstrokes. swift, deft and sure. generally, no waffling no fiddling about.
    you decide – and Do it! leaving your work so much cleaner, fresher, luminous. even in low key as you often do. which, is an extremely challenging task. (ps Fabriano ❤ ) cheers, debi

    1. Thanks so much, Debi… so kind! 🙂 It took me some time to get sure with the brushstrokes… and some days I am not really sure. It is so much depending on my mind condition… and I guess I can´t get enough practice. But I think I made some progress during the last months and this feels pretty good.
