Around the Easel
Lots of things happen in the studio (and not just there):
Before a painting is created, you need ideas. Sometimtes you just need an unusual thing or a flower, that is draped in my theatre till I like the composition of the sketch I do.
The painting is not always easy, when the studio assistant comes by und wants a stroke, but some time I take the brushes again.
For drying the paintings dry on a display and those with a very solid wooden support get black sides and a hanger of steas on the back.
In the meantime I put a photo of the painting on the internet so that a lot of people can see it and sometime a heart finds its painting and I send it on a trip.
When the weather is good enough I find some of my ideas outside and paint plein air.
