For the past 10 years, Hans Jørgen Frydendal has been working professionally with water colors. Most of his motives are landscapes or skylines, but not at all like architectural drawings. He is very inspired by colors, new shapes and different cultures, where he among other things is searching for the light. In the domain of the water colors, Hans Jørgen Frydendal is fascinated by the merging of water, paper and colors, which makes the art come alive. The combination of colors and fantastic structures are also part of his passion. Everything is floating, which makes the spontaneity and risk part of the inspiring and yet unpredictable work progress.
