In this post, I show a series of pictures of my gouache painting “Sculptures in Painting 04” work steps. I painted on 300 g Fabriano paper. In the works of this series of paintings, I present reduced sculptural forms in the context of abstract painting. Guassi was a good choice to carry out this work, as it produces flat surfaces which, however, vary somewhat depending on the amount of water used. Some of the work steps take the work to completion, while others are experiments that I have to replace with better choices at a later stage of the work.
I painted a large red area first. Paper is 56 x 76 cm Fabriano 300g, rough.
Preliminary shades of gray in the background
Smaller areas, first bright blue
Yellow and light orange
Shade of gray-green in the background
I cover the last white surfaces with dark gray and light green
I change from light green to dark gray
Changing the background to light gray
I change the foreground yellows to dark blue

Changing my archive of works to my new website is gradually progressing. I added the following series of works to the menu: M the Machine from 2003 was a temporary installation of 700 cardboard boxes and programmed screenings I made in Roanoke, Virginia. Color sculptures is my long-standing sculpture series, the first sculpture of which I made in 2007, in which I am interested in the effect of color on the plastic form. The abstract paintings in the Fachwerk Und painting series are variations on the notes I took during my travels to Germany about the traditional Fachwerk architecture of Central Europe.
