New painting: Secret

Secret, Acrylics and oilpaint on woodpanel, 30 x 40 cm.
I while ago I made some sketches for a serie of paintings with a feminine touch and a lot of organic shapes with a main focus on the face. I wanted to paint these on woodpanels because it's more sustainable and heavier than paper. This woodpanel has a thickness of 5 mm, which fits perfectly in the frame.

When I changed the eyelashes into red, I liked her face more, because it just gives it a twist.

I build the painting in layers of black and white, so everything had the same values. Except the jellyfish. This is something new for me, because normally I would through lots of colours in at the first fase.  But now everything is subtle.

Thomas James, creative director and illustrator from www.illustrationage.com recently asked me to join as an editor assistant. The site shows interesting inspiring illustrations from illustrators all over the world. I love to contribute some of my own inspiration, because I love to collect illustrations and my bookmarks are overload with sites from artists.
