technique wood

Preparatory work on the wooden panels and frames for charring.

Wood is a living material with different grains, structures and knotholes.
When the wood is charred, different colors and depths can be created, each of which is adapted to the particular painting.
This creates an interplay of transience, proportions and colors.

The wood for the frames is selected.

The frames and 3-layer panels are made to measure for each painting.

The wood is charred with a gas flame in order to bring out the structures and wood grain.

Depending on the painting, you can adjust the color by carbonizing it less to get brown tones or fully carbonize for a deep and rich black.

After that, the wood is sealed to paint on with acrylic paints.
