39.4 - 78.7 inch (100 - 200 cm) | Acrylic on Linen
This large sized painting of the world is based on the weather situation on Wednesday January 8th, 2014. This day is a good representation of the winter period in that particular year.
To get an idea, northern parts of the world had a really tough winter. And for me, cold means that a bigger part of the painting will be in all sorts of blue or purple. The United States and a large part of Asia suffered from pretty low temperatures. There were also extreme cold places. That means, they will get a different color, bright pink for instance. As a matter of fact, in my compositions of Weathermap different temperatures mean an enormous variation of colors, and shapes of colors.
It may be clear that this new World Weathermap is made to entertain. I have used the weather situation of mentioned moment only as an inspiration, a starting point. I wanted to create an expressionist and eye catching painting that surprises the viewer on a happy and extreem colorful way. And show a joyful feeling of the weather and climate.
