Dear readers,


Today I’m back on my (free) painting horse. In the meantime I have been working on my colour course the last few days. Which is really interesting and important, but feels sometimes more like learning french grammar instead of chatting with a french friend.


Back to the format I did a few days ago: 20/20 cm, and the colours Azurite Blue, Quinocridone Nickel Azo Gold, Green Gold, Titanium white, and that’s it.

Today I started with the green drops instead of the Nickel Azo Gold drops. I see that the green has a lighter value than the Nickel Azo God drops: which makes the whole picture different.


Have a nice day!

    Simone, I totally hear you about making decisions about what to say when posting a painting, especially the decision about whether or not to say anything negative. I am not uncomfortable saying I don’t like what I’ve painted but I am surprised again and again by what others like (that I don’t)—I often choose to stay quiet so as not to influence commenters and lose the chance to get a different perspective from my own.

    Now that I say that, though, I realize I less often stop myself from saying positive things when I DO like what I’ve painted, and that could influence commenters, too. Hmm …

    Thanks so much!

    Often I really have to force myself not to say anything negative about my paintings. Even not telling negative stories sometimes feels like bragging. (Isn’t that horrible)?

    But: I was less satisfied with this one, so now I can see with your eyes, and then I see something different! 😉

    Simone, so much for me to explore! This painting is a landscape in my eyes—saplings, grasses, shrubs, trees, and sky in the top fifth of the painting, with roots, soil, rhizomes, stolons, and microbial activity underground. I am appreciating your inclusion of quiet areas in your painting. And layering. And color. So glad to be watching the adventure unfold.
