Title: Inviting Street in Malang

Size: 100 x 120 - Oil on canvas.




This is a real welcoming street in one of the kampongs in Malang, East Java.

Of course, first I made a drawing as you can see above. Afterwards I made the painting from this drawing. The problem is then, that the drawing is gone. A lot of my good friends have advised me to make the drawings two times. I think I will follow that advise.

Talking about the painting, as you can see I like to play with the colors to give you the real feeling of the moment I was making the painting on this location. To capture the feeling in the right way, that means that I am happy with it, I use all these colors and flowers to describe the essence of this kampong not by words but by the painting.

As I said before, it is an inviting street in the Kampong. Cars and motorbikes are not allowed to be here it is impossible for them to get in anyway, it gives the freedom for the people who live there and especially for the kids.
