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

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!

Daily Painting: Another entry in my diary

Daily Painting: Another entry in my diary

Dear reader,

I’m continuing my artist diary with great pleasure. I can work as fast in this diary as I used to work on my postcards, I just use bigger brushes and more paint, and that’s it. Not that working fast is an end in itself, but it gives me the possibility to focus on writing my book, while not to loose my painting practice.

I recognize that painting is really a practice for being in the Now, but better said: it’s being aware of the actual experience of the Now, moment by moment. Instead of living over it.

It also helps me in writing my book. To write while being centered in my body and intuition.

 

Enough said!

Have a beautiful day!
