Just came back from visiting one of my best girlfriends and art-buddies, and a great exhibition in Cologne - " A bigger picture" by british artist David Hockney - Landscapes in bold colors and textures he has painted mostly within the last 10 years. I have always been a big fan of his work and found it amazing, how young and energetic he still is with 74, embracing new ideas and media to work with.
Quite a number of artwork were created by him on his i-pad and then printed on big paper sheets and put together - like the first image i posted here. This technique allows him to work very fast and spontaneous, and he uses it with masterly skill. I would never have thought that digital prints could have almost the same impact as oil-paintings - but they did in this case. And i really want to try this myself - ha, i need an i-pad!
I also visited the current exibition with paintings by my friend, Sabina. These i'll show you another time. Meanwhile, all this was really a feast for the eyes and i will digest it over the weekend, reveling in bright greens, pinks, oranges, blues and purples. Hope you're having a fabulous time lovelies - am sending you COLORS and LOVE!
