Daily Painting: getting into the groove again

Daily Painting: getting into the groove again

Dear reader,

 

I have quite a bit of difficulty starting up again the painting process. There is so much work to do around marketing my book etcetera, that I am drawn to that much more. At the same time I don’t want to give up my painting.

Right now, I’m following my own advice, and work with collages. I cut up old material and add extra paint. Yesterday and today, I only made a cut out from an old painting, and added some extra black paint. Very quick, but at least: I’m painting!

Below the paintings of this morning and yesterday morning.

Daily Painting: After three months of writing

Daily Painting: After three months of writing

Dear reader,

 

After maybe three or more months of intensive writing (and finishing!) my book I’m back again to (hopefully daily) painting! A bit strangely though – I haven’t touched any paint for weeks and weeks! Didn’t like the first result that much: I started with an old scrap of paper that I used as a palette – thick layers of old dried paint on it. I added some crayon. It looks really rough – it was difficult to work with since the layers were thick and lumpy – the crayon didn’t ‘stick’ very well.

Still, it was nice for a start!

 

Bye,

Simone

Daily Painting: Painting on a Saturday

Daily Painting: Painting on a Saturday

Dear reader,

 

Today it’s Saturday, and I paint! I am so out of my rhythm of daily painting, that I’m now painting on the weekends, in stead of in the workweek.

I hope to publish my book soon, so I can get back to a regular practice. But for today, it was fun to just play around with paper and paint.

 

Bye!

Daily Painting: Collage again!

Daily Painting: Collage again!

Dear reader,

 

I’m searching for bits and pieces of time to keep my art inspiration alive. Today I took a quarter of an hour to make a collage of an old painting. It is not very sophisticated, but still, I was able to add a little bit of visual inspiration to my day.

 

Bye!

Dear reader,

 

I’m trying to get into my painting routine, but it’s not easy since I’m writing a book at the same time. I’m still looking for cues how I can get my daily routine back.

 

Bye!

Simone

(ps: this is another painting-diary try-out).
