Daily Painting: A postcard from the drawer

Daily Painting: A postcard from the drawer

Dear reader,

 

Under my desk, I keep a big drawer with old paintings, and scraps of painted paper that still have beautiful reusable pieces on them. Today I didn’t have time to paint, but I wanted to make something, so I opened this drawer, and: yes! This was what came out of it.

Daily Painting: Blues and Reds

Daily Painting: Blues and Reds

Dear reader,

 

Today I wrestled a bit with this one, but what I like about all this painting experience that I have ‘under my belt’ so to speak, is that I just keep going, until something acceptable shows up. It doesn’t have to be great. But even if I would paint the whole thing black, with just some white and some colors peeping through, it would be good enough.

 

Bye!

Daily Painting: Negative space

Daily Painting: Negative space

Dear reader,

 

Today another painting in my art diary.

I have painted a lot of paintings using the principle of ‘negative space’. Making colorful paintings, and then covering up a lot of it. The pieces that are not covered  ‘pop up’ more – because the rest of it is covered, they get extra attention.

I always used white or other colors to create negative space, never black!

And all of a sudden, today, I painted black around colorful spots. Why didn’t I invent this before?

 

Bye!

Daily Painting: Being So Called Busy

Daily Painting: Being So Called Busy

Dear reader,

 

Today I was so-called-busy, but thanks to my friend Dotty I was inspired to paint anyway. Only took a quarter of an hour or so. No spectacular results, but I had fun!

 

Bye!
