Dailiy Painting, day 31 – 33

Dailiy Painting, day 31 – 33

Dear reader,

This week, I painted on painting nr 5 in the series of 6.

I painted two or three days, I even forgot ! Not every day. Not posting makes it easier to not paint, but still I paint, and it saves me tons of time. But I like to keep posting about the process.

I’m changing to a new computer, so I have to find out how I can upload my pictures without too much hassle.

 

Bye!

Six paintings: Day 27 – 30

Six paintings: Day 27 – 30

Dear reader,

This week I didn’t blog about my painting. I decided not to blog every day. Blogging costs time, and even though it’s fun and I like it, and it helps me to document my process, I want to balance it more with other projects. The other thing is that it’s easier to see the progress over a week. Let’s give it a try this week. I don’t want it to be a slippery slope, since I think that documenting my process is very important and interesting.

This week I painted four days in a row. I realised how little time it actually costs. I usually paint only a session of 25 minutes. Of course preparing and cleaning up costs time, but right now I’m so used to it, that I can do it really quickly.

I started a whole new painting, number 5 in the series. Here you can see my progress.

thanks for following, see you next week!

Daily Painting: Six Paintings, day 26

Daily Painting: Six Paintings, day 26

Dear reader,

Today a next layer on the fourth painting.

It’s interesting: two paintings of mine have turned out quite ‘white’ – a lot of negative shapes with white around it. Now this new one doesn’t have that, until now.

It’s a funny experience that part of me wants to make them ‘even’, so add a lot of white to this one too. But the painting does not seem to want to go in that direction, at least not now yet. I’m wondering what’s coming next!

It seems that I have more respect for ‘the soul of this painting’. It’s easier when you think that a painting has a life of its own, that both of you (me, the painter, she, the painting) are dancing. Sometimes this one’s in the lead, sometimes the other.

 

Bye!

Simone

Dear reader,

 

This is another layer on painting 4. Since I more accepted that my paintings turn out as they do, things go much quicker and easier. And: everytime I walk along nr 2 and 3 I feel happy! Nr 1 is still 3/4 finished, so this makes my hands itch. I want to finish it later on though. First let it sink in.

Daily Painting: Six paintings, day 24

Daily Painting: Six paintings, day 24

Dear reader,

 

Since this week I have felt more comfortable with my ‘blobs’, and I appreciate my paintings more. It made it a lot easier to continue working on my fourth painting. I put a next layer with very bright colors on the canvas, mostly with colors straight out of the bottle. Later on, I will add colors with more complexity.

Since this is the fourth painting already, I believe that I’m going to get my paintings finished in time for the exhibition in March. Yay! Until now, I was a bit worried about if I would be able to make it, but the speed I’m making right now gives me hope. 

Bye the way, I only paint for approximately 20 a 30 minutes a day (which is much compared to the long period of collage making that is behind me). Still, it gives me plenty of time to do other work. I don’t take time to dry the layers with a hair dryer, I paint only one layer and let that dry in its own time. 

 

Bye!
