Based on two previous artworks: a pastel called ‘Into the light – 15-06-17’ (impressionistic, surrealsitic) and a graphite pencil drawing ‘Roundism – 04-07-17’. I liked both works and took the colour scheme of the pastel drawing in reds and greens but also used the roundism style of the pencil drawing and combine them. I was not satisfied with using two colours only and added blue als a ligament throughout the oil painting. I also used cool and warm reds and greens in order to create a vivid impression. I killed the yellow I used in the initial setup because it drew the attention too much. Futhermore, this type of ‘Roundism’ is based on my theories on singularity I put down in previous descriptions to other works I made in the recent past.
