The template for this watercolor painting was "The grain harvest" by Pieter Bruegel the Elder. The picture, which is also considered a "summer picture" (from a series about the four seasons), shows people in a landscape, which is determined by cornfields. I painted the watercolor as recently always in the neo-Pointilist style. That is, I put the picture from many colored points together. It acts thereby like a color eye test.
Interestingly, however, it is less about colors than about sharp vision. The colors ultimately only serve recognition purposes. The challenge of finding the right tones and brightness levels with watercolor is just an exercise in craftsmanship. What's actually exciting about this kind of "retinal art" is the effect that occurs when I take off my glasses: Because then the colors blur into the white spaces and form an overall color mass. Thanks to the recognition, details then become visible that are not even on the picture. It is, as already described - art for the short-sighted.
Sometimes, when I sit like this in the studio and look at my paintings, I try to reflect on my own work and somehow sort it into the art context I know so far. Unfortunately, for some time I have had the feeling of being too late. Basically almost 100 years too late. My pictures should have been painted around 1920. But they were forgotten at the time. So I do it now, because it just has to be. But unfortunately they are too late. That is probably also the reason why practically no one is interested in them.
Anyway, keep painting ...
