Karl Kaul


Creation of
"The puppeteer"

The creation of this painting is shown in seven pixtures.


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


2) Next I apply a second and third layer of colour in the same manner.


3) The background colours are often applied like watercolours or rubbed with a cloth.  New colour areas are added. They are related to the already existing surfaces, form contrasts, colour tones or have an accompanying function.


4) Important shapes are bordered by dark, often black lines in order to be highlighted.


5-7) The play with forms, colours, lines and background continues until I feel that the composition is sufficient.  Two or three hours, sometimes weeks, pass.

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.
