The painting is called "The Tourists" and it's a 36cm X 46cm, so not very big. I'm wondering if I should have made it a lot bigger. That way it would have been more impressive.
I made a small sketch for this one already in January. It actually turned out just the way I planned and I got to use my pyramid theme once again.
So, now you know how they build their cities in the TV-headland. I named this painting "The Newcomers". The painting is a big one by my standards, 60 cm X 80 cm.
I started out with the green (a long time ago) and wanted to make a jungle painting, which I've been meaning to make for some time now, but well, it didn't happen this time. Maybe next time.
This time I didn't have any special inspiration, I just proceeded little by little. First I decided to make some of my elaborate buildings. Then I made the smaller cities and added the ufos. I think the ufos could pop up better from the background. They are too dark for the dark green and they look even darker in the picture than in reality.
Then the thing needed some TV-heads. The two were obviously not enough for me, because the white lines heading towards the cities are also small TV-heads (it might not come across well from the picture).
There has been a quite a long break since I posted my last painting. I blame the winter. I mean, who gets inspired by the coldness and darkness. No me. From now on there will be new paintings more often. I actually have many of them in the production line waiting to be finished.
This one started out with the intention of making something with just black, white and grey. As you can see the result is not very black and white. The grey balls were in a way inspired by the big earthquake in Japan. I saw on TV how an oil refinery was blazing with an uncontrollable fire. The refinery had these huge ball shaped storage tanks. The fire depatments trucks looked miniature compared to the oil tanks.
You see the unbelievable pictures of that blaze from this link.

The painting is called "The Meeting at the Spheres" (40cm X 40cm).
