Daily Painting: An experiment with tissue paper

Daily Painting: An experiment with tissue paper

Dear reader,

 

Today I did a small experiment with a piece of colored tissue paper. I wanted to use it in one of the bigger paintings, but since I never used it before, I wanted to try it out first.

Not very satisfied with the result, but at least I’ve tried!

Daily Paintings: Six Paintings, day 13

Dear reader,

 

Today I did not feel like painting at all, and especially not big. But the painting has been staring at me the whole weekend, so I decided to start anyway. I used a lot of black, and I like the graphical nature of the change that the painting made.

Bye!

Simone

Daily Painting: Six Paintings, Day 12

Daily Painting: Six Paintings, Day 12

Dear reader,

 

Today another big painting day. Compared to yesterday, this felt freer, but I have a few questions: isn’t the composition too boring, and are only three colors (turquoise, magenta, and quinacridone nickel azo gold, with a touch of yellow): is that enough to make a painting interesting?

When I look to the painting I already made (Painting 1, not finished) I now see what’s the difference between them. In that painting, I mixed all three colors up, and then a greyish, brownish color appears. That’s giving the colors more depth. Going to try that out next week.

 

Bye!
Simone

 

 

(ps: I’ll post both half-finished paintings, below (first the second, then the third). You might have to enlarge the paintings to see this greyish color, it’s for instance visible in the left circle below.

Daily Painting: Six Paintings, Day 11

Dear reader,

 

Today the 11th day, I worked on the second painting. Adding more color to it, with very big brushes and large movements. Wonder where it is going. Maybe a bit too much with an ‘end-product’ in mind.

We’ll see!

Daily Painting: Six paintings, day 10

Dear reader,

 

Today the first layer on the second painting in a series of six. First layers, making a border of black (I like that in the paintings of Line Juhl Hansen), glueing scraps of newspaper and black tissue paper on it. Feels good to start with something new!

 

Bye,

Simone
