During the painting process, I turn and turn the canvas endlessly many times. Basically the “complete” painting was yellow and green, I drew with chalk to look for something unpredictable would happen in the process. I want to be surprised myself. The frustration arises as usual, I leave the board and cycle down to southern Öland’s lighthouse. The wind blows wonderfully in face that summer and when I then return to the paint shop it takes a maximum of 2 min, SMACK! So the colors are there and the shorebird comes by chance with a sponge that then polished in its form with a brush shaft.
