1000 Heads: the book

1000 heads, my illustration book

Inspiring books for the creative type


Bernd Koberling

Today I’ve had the opportunity to visit a solo exhibition by the german artist Bernd Koberling. I have always loved his paintings, ever since I first saw his figure paintings from the early eighties and some earlier works.

The current show at Jule Kewenig gallery in Palma is very special because it displays his current technique of watercolour-like panels, which was commented in the previous post (about large scale watercolours.) There is also a selection of true watercolours on paper. The exhibition can be visited until late august.


The little white house variations

Quite a few years ago, I created a long series of watercolours with a common theme. It was simply a little white house surrounded by woods, seen from different points of view, in each time of the year and in different weather and light conditions. Scorching heat, hard rain, misty mornings, quiet snowy evenings and peaceful autumn afternoons are all represented in this minimal scene.

This is the typical excuse to create a series of educational drawings or paintings. It worked, because I had the opportunity to test my skills and learn new methods of mixing colour, applying washes, wet techniques and many more.

I have posted a selection from this series in my Flickr page, because I still think some of them are good examples of watercolour in use. One could say they have some historical interest for me.

These photos don’t have a very good quality, actually, because I took them, if I remember well, with a rather primitive digital camera.
