the triptych

so: the final result (click on the image to see it bigger). Each enamel is 40 x 50 cm


I also made three smaller versions with strong background colours (the other two were in yesterday's post), but they kind of loose the original idea and the subtle details.

det är ju så läckert det där materialet... att man kan ha det utomhus och att det klarar regn och rusk...

Powerful images. I wonder how you will be making your pieces when you move to London. Will you have a workshop there?

Esti - starting out I'll have to manage without any workshop... I've prepared material and "methods" for this though. Before I just painted in oil on canvas, but one and a half year ago when we took the decision to move to London I started experimenting with watercolour and acrylics on paper. I miss the oil though... But painting in a tiny apartment ANd having a three year old son - it's not an option.

Anyhow - to go back to Sweden and KKV Now and then and make prints and enamels is part of the plan...
