Some more Greeks

The first painting took me some time, because the light condition changed so much during my several visits. Now the sense of space and the rooms are becoming more interesting to me. I painted the second one pretty fast because I already had done the smaller version.

Um das erste Gemälde fertigzustellen benötigte ich einige Sitzungen, da ich immer wieder unterschiedliche Lichtsituationen zu gewärtigen hatte. Die Räume interessieren mich immer mehr. Das zweite Bild malte ich verhältnissmässig schnell, weil ich es schon kleiner angefertigt hatte.

Stefan, I love the atmosphere you have created here, that sense of greatness and quietness that ancient statues present to us.

Hi Sheila,
I try to liberate myself from the actual objects and concentrate on patterns, rhythm, shape and atmosphere. Thanks for your comment.
