HAPPY ACCIDENTS!





MEDIUM oil on canvas SIZE 39 x 33 cm


Sometimes, fortune favours you. Then it seems like magic. I will try to explain it, using a detail of a girl that I painted on commission.



The suggestion of 3D

What you see is an eye that shines and that the eye is a sphere. A three-dimensional (3D) reality is suggested. To suggest 3D is magic! And sometimes luck is on your side. I'll let you in on a little secret.

Key detail

You can see a very thin light grey line going down in the direction of the corner of her eye, just under her eyelid. It came out of my one-haired brush more or less by accident while working on another aspect of her eye and... let that be the very line that creates the additional shimmer and the bulge.

I was and am so happy with that detail.
