Creation of
"The puppeteer"

The creation of this painting is shown in six pixtures as a slideshow.


1) First I'm beginning with a wide flat-brush and one colour with quick and unconcentrated lines.


2) Next I take a second and third colour in the same manner.


3) The background colours are often painted in water colour. The acrylic colours are wiped away with a rag. New forms are added, resulting from the early lines.


4) Important forms are bordered with some dark, often black lines.


5) The play with forms and colours, lines and background continues until I feel that the composition is finished.


6) The last step is to sign the art-piece. The title of the painting is in general a realistic one, found during painting or sometimes days after.


Karl Kaul is a german expressionistic fine-art painter, specialized on figurative and abstract paintings. 

My artistic work during the last years concentrates on figurative topics of 1 x 1 meter format. Picture elements of these acrylic paintings are people, animals and plants, integrated into an imaginary area-structure. The human being forms a common habitat with fauna and flora. The series consists of a great number of paintings.

From time to time you will have updated examples of this series. Look at "Panta rhei" Actual choice . Look at www.kaul-pantarhei.de for the complete series.
