Now in Color
New Oil Paintings by Stefan Stenudd
More than black and white
Since Juy 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.
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.

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.
