The video shows as time lapse the creation of a (semi-) abstract oil painting. The motif is a mantis shrimp, which is designed in the style of a colour vision test. The oil painting belongs to the series "Animals that can change their colour". Methodically it consists of three painting levels: the colour dots (basic colour), the joints (between the dots) and the light points (overlapping brightening or colour intensification).
In this picture I proceeded differently than before: the preliminary drawing showed only some contours of the cancer, but no pre-drawn points. I painted the color points quasi freehand directly on the canvas - therefore most of them are anything but circular. Then I drew the light points with a round shape. In the next step I painted the joints between the color points. Thereby I left out the pre-drawn light points.
The following video is part of the artwork. Since the painting process is of great importance to me as a painter (when I make which painterly decisions), I document each oil painting in a time-lapse video. In case of an exhibition, the video should be shown near the painting.
