One thing that grabs your attention while watching at German painter Stefan Guggisberg’s paintings is the use of colours. Bleak at first, yet rich and extremely detailed when you take another look. Stefan developed his own technique for creating the layered background: with the brush he nudges oil paint smoothly and in different directions all over the paper, repeating in this manner with several different colours to create a shimmering ground. I’d love to see this work in a gallery some time, it must be amazing to see this technique up close.
