New Oil Paintings by Stefan Stenudd



More than black and white

Since July 2014, I've started painting again, with a frenzy I haven't had since the 1970's. I made a bunch in black and white, but now colors emerge.



       My first batch of 2014 paintings had the theme Hands On. First it was just hands, then hands on bodies. I move on with this theme, but the bodies seem to get more and more in focus. Here is the first batch:

Hands On - oil paintings

       They are all in black and white, but as I've continued on the theme of hands and bodies, colors have started to emerge. The first one hesitantly introduces two colors: light ocher and burnt umber. On the second and third one I used them in abundance. You see them below, and more paintings will be added.

Hands On Bodies 10. Oil painting by Stefan Stenudd, 2014.


       Here is the charcoal sketch I did at first on the canvas. I thought it might be interesting to see what it looked like before I started with the oil colors. I usually spend quite some time drawing and editing the image with charcoal, before the actual painting begins.

       And here's a detail from the above painting. I worked quite a lot on the faces:

       The above painting and the one below are sort of the same motif. I bet I'll do more of that - exploring the same motif in several paintings, sort of searching for the final outcome.

Hands On Bodies 18. Oil painting by Stefan Stenudd, 2015.


       This painting is actually from 2015, but it belongs to this theme although the hand is not on the body, but a ball. So, we're moving on.
