Daily Painting: Combinations

Daily Painting: Combinations

Dear readers,

A while ago I bought painting cardboard of 20″/26″.

I wanted to paint on square format, so I cut off a piece of 20″/6″

I divided this one in three pieces of 6/”6″, and in between there were two ‘bookmarks’ of 6″/1″.

At first I started on the one big stripe, I used masking tape to ‘mask’ the two bookmarks, later on I cut out the 6″/6″ pieces.

See the photo’s below!

  1. The 6″/20″ stripe
  2. The three paintings of 6″/6″
  3. The bookmarks in between

 

And after that, you’ll find two paintings of mine, in four kind of compositions. I’m not very good at math anymore, but how many combinations would there be?

 

Bye!

Simone

 

Daily Painting: Lots of paintings!

Daily Painting: Lots of paintings!

Dear readers,

You wouldn’t say it when you look at the amount of blogs lately, but I painted a lot in the past period. Almost every evening after dinner I went upstairs and painted for an hour or so (not during the weekend, by the way). When I’m done it is so late that I often don’t have the energy anymore to take pictures and write a blog.


So in this blog you will find the results of many evenings of painting!

I painted in two sizes: 20/20 “and 6/6”. I loved it!

I’m painting on thick paper, so I don’t have to worry about throwing away a lot of money. I just paint and experiment!

bye!

(The first five are 20/20″, the second five are 6/6″).

 

Daily Painting: first paintings in my renewed studio!

Daily Painting: first paintings in my renewed studio!

Dear readers,

 

Past 1,5 week, Steven and I worked very hard on my room. I rearranged everything, and now my¬† painting ‘department’ is a lot bigger! I have 1) a bigger table, 2) a bigger wall (important, because I have a sloped ceiling), and 3) I have more floor space!

 

So grateful for that!

 

Yesterday evening I painted two first layers, and today some more layers. Below you find the photo’s of today’s results, if I manage to import them.

 

 

 

bye!

Daily Painting: New brushes!

Daily Painting: New brushes!

Dear readers,

 

Today, another 30/30 cm painting! It’s the second layer on yesterday’s second painting. Hardly anything left of that layer! I painted with my new paintbrushes that I ordered yesterday.

Yesterday I was watching Flora Bowley’s free ‘Together Apart- virtual retreat’. There she mentioned the brand of the foam brushes that she always uses. It never was satisfied with the flimsy quality foam brush that they sell in art supplies stores over here. And I was right: the foambrush she uses is another (American) kind of brush. I’ve ordered them here: (interesting for anyone living in the Netherlands).I’m very happy with them, they’re a lot more sturdy than the ones I always used. They make better marks!

 

bye!

Daily Painting: A new layer!

Dear readers,

 

Today I added a totally unexpected layer on yesterday’s painting. Yesterday I didn’t like it so much (too loud), and today I decided to give it a second chance.

 

And also I made a start with a second 30/30 cm painting.

 

I see the photo’s are fuzzy because the light was too bad when I took the photo’s. If I feel like it I will change them tomorrow morning.

 

 

bye!

Simone
