11/04/2015: Sitting and waiting at the airport

 

 

I chose this image because it reflects the theme waiting I'm working on, but it also brings in an interesting space. Airports are often spacious and futuristic and just interesting to paint.

I'm not working on my little MDF tiles anymore, which were 20 by 20 centimeters. This time I asked for 40 by 40 centimeter tiles, quadrupling the surface, and making it a little bit more difficult for myself.

I started with overdrawing the image with a pen to make the details stronger, then started to add paint to simplify the image. I used the same tones as in 09/04/2015: It's my birthday, a good moment to look back, but this time I felt like I needed to add a warmer colour too.

The result is a very busy painting, but there are also some nice details I want to show you in the pictures below.
