Searching for new backgrounds




I am always looking for new backgrounds for pictures.

It should be interesting, but not too much distract the eye of

the actual image content. It should match in color and - if possible -

have a relation to the picture.


From a YouTuber, which actually shows rather special painting work, I have seen a great presentation of a marble look with wall paint, as they are used for painting the wallpaper in their own four walls.

I thought this might be a good background for an acrylic or oil painting, and I tried the technique on a poplar plywood board.

The description of the doing can be seen in the video.



Making Of


Look a little bit over my shoulder,

what I'm working right now.


In a monthly series I show

some of my work and give you

a few Background information.
