Windmills and texture

Beginning to experiment


This Windmills landscape is one of my first systematic experimenting with acrylics and texture. I’ve painted it in 2001 or 2002 and even if the reproduction isn’t the best possible you still can see the texture. With acrylics, texture can be very effective (you can do texture with oil painting, of course, but acrylics seemed to be MADE for that). It’s a direction I followed, a bit, but I could do a lot more, still…


Ce paysage avec de moulins à vent est un des mes premières experimentation systématique avec la texture. J’ai peint ca en 2001 ou 2002 et même si la reproduction n’est pas la meilleure on peut toujours voire la texture. Texture qui est très efficace avec la peinture acrylique (on peut faire ca avec de la peinture à l’huile, bien sur, mais l’acrylique semble fait pour ca!). C’est une direction que j’ai exploré, un peu, mais que je n’ai pas exploaté totalement…


Acest peisaj cu mori de vant e una din primele mele incercari de experimentare sistematica cu texturile. L-am pictat prin 2001 sau 2002 si desi reproducerea nu e cea mai buna posibil, se poate totusi vedea ce am incercat sa fac cu textura. Sigur, potzi face texturi si cu pictura de ulei dar culorile acrilice par facute anume pentru texturi. E o directie pe care am explorat-o, un pic, dar nu am exploatat-o inca destul…

  1. I love this painting. The colors and textures are amazing. I want to hug it!

    Ce frumusete de pictura !

    ai avut o zi fasta; probabil ca Van Gogh ti-o fi stat pe undeva pe-aproape, intr-un ungher al inimii tale rascolite de “un dor fara satziu”…

  3. I’m like moonbeam–I love this painting, Danu (though I don’t feel like hugging it or breastfeeding it or anything). It IS spectacular for texture as well as color. It must be one of your best landscapes.

    esti bun… “rau” de tot!

  5. What can I say? Thanks, moonbeam and 100swallows, glad you like it. Maybe I should continue in this direction, not yet totally explored…

  6. Multzam, Ovidiu! amabil ca intotdeauna! Culmea e ca pictura asta am plimbat-o cu mine pe la expozitzii si simpozioane si, desi au fost 2 sau 3 interesatzi, n-am reusit s-o vand nici macar cu 100… Si nici macar cu 1/2 din 100… Pacat ca cei care stiu aprecia n-au bani si cei care au bani nu stiu aprecia…

    placerea a fost de partea mea !

  8. Cool painting, and you got some great texture.

  9. Not too,well, simple, Bill? looking at it, now, I feel it is maybe too “primary colors”, you know… not enough refined…

    Ma intorc cu drag la morile tale,
    Dan Quijote!…

  11. Si eu m-as cam intoarce (macar din cand in cand) la modele… Daca n-ar fi o balta mare intre mine si voi…
