Daily Painting: Six paintings, day 25

Daily Painting: Six paintings, day 25

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.

Bye!

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.

Dear reader,

 

I started a new painting today, number 4. Only glueing patches of newspaper on it. Fun to do, but artistically not so inspiring. A necessary step in between!

 

Bye,

Simone

Daily Painting: Six Paintings, day 22

Dear reader,

 

Today, another layer on on of the paintings. Only adding white and a few small blobs. I am in the process of accepting my ‘style’ at this moment (blobs, blobs, blobs). It’s fun to realize that I have this grown up voice in myself that says I should make more interesting compositions. They might come out of my one day, but today it’s this. And I like it!

The strange thing is, when I make collages, the compositions are so different. I don’t know why? maybe the small format ‘asks’ for different gestures? I don’t know. All I know is that if I allow things to flow out of me, painting is more fun!

 

Bye!

Below you’ll find the development of the last three days. I always like to see the small changes in the last phase.

Daily Painting, Six paintings, day 21

Dear readers,

 

Today I worked on another layer of painting 2 in the series of six.

Today I had a revelation. I think I silently hope for more ‘interesting’ compositions to come out of me. More exciting, more asymmetric composition. Especially asymmetric. But what comes out is a painting with Blobs. All the paintings that I make are full with blobs.

On my collages I get more ‘interesting’ compositions. But not on the big paintings (up till now).

Today I thought: you know what? I like the blobs! I’m going to paint them without my ‘grownup thoughts’, and just be the child I am inside.

 

Bye!

Simone
