I am a self taught artist, based in Sweden.
I tend to treat every piece of art I work on the same, without expectations.
I let my vivid imagination and natural fondness of earthy colors dictate the path in which the artwork will tread. It’s amazing how the creation of a painting has the potential to be an experience for you, if you just take a step back and let the colors guide you.
On a more technical note, I often start by laying down a basecoat of acrylic, often simply to get the splashing of colors out of my system. Once I get the foundation down I use oil to accentuate different parts of the acrylic. The trick here is to take your time, layering in the oils and letting the painting speak for it self.
