Daily Painting: Pink!

Daily painting

Dear readers,


Today I finished the painting that I started the day before yesterday. I used quite a bit of pink. If you follow my blog, you know how much I use turquoise, but I also like pink, so I added that color on purpose this time.


Sub- or halfconsciously I had a lot of  ideas running through my head, while painting.

  • How much I like layering
  • How everything comes together in the end – you just have to keep going until it feels good.


There are different ‘techniques’ I use, and I try to balande them:

  • using negative space,
  • making marks,
  • using Neocolor II crayon,
  • using grafite, which makes for a lighter mark, using acrylic markers,
  • using pure white and pure black, next to mixed white and (this time not) grey.
  • using Quinacridone Nickel Azo Gold, to ‘glue’ everything together.
  • and more.


I always search for balance, but I also always want to throw myself out of balance, and I keep doing both of them, until it comes to a natural rest. Not too boring, not too wild.


Here’s the painting (20/20 cm, 8/8″). It’s for sale in the shop.




I wish you a beautiful and creative day!

    Simone, your art and accompanying words each day are just the right ‘bite’ of creative energy for me as I start my day! Thank you!

    Today’s 20/20cm piece is at once signature Simone and fully unique unto itself. And pulls me in deeply.

      I’m so glad to hear so, Dotty! I thank YOU for your companionship every day!
