On the origin 2

This painting, 130 x 160 cm, oil on canvas, was made during the period I worked on the painting Evolution 1 (painting of decembre).

It consists of a lot of different layers. Sometimes even with the same color (red over red over red over red). This technique (called “glaceren” in Dutch) makes that the colors increase in depth (sort of a velvet texture).

It’s very difficult to catch this on camera. But belief me, when you’re in front of this one, it almost seems possible to stick your hand inside the painting.

This is an old technique, used for instance by Rembrandt van Rijn, the famous Dutch painter (see example).
