It's already been a while since 2017 has ended, but I still wanted to make a sort of summary of my past year. It's difficult to do so, but I think I managed to put my 2017 in a blogpost! In the past year I went to Berlin, Budapest and Barcelona, had a pug and a whippet for two weeks, picked up photography, participated in Drawing Days, worked on a bunch of paintings and so on.
Because it's a lot, I did my best to keep it short, but you should be prepared to see lots of pictures!
For Drawing Days, a sort of art festival, I made a painting on a few windows in Ghent. Go here for more information and to see the work of all the artists! If you want to know more about the artwork I made, read further.
Let's just begin with the fact that I'm sorry I didn't uploaded a blogpost every end of the month - like I promised - with everything I made in my art journal that month. To be honest: there was not much to show. I didn't really paint that much in my Art Journal. I already explained it in an earlier blogpost: I was very busy and I was working on actual paintings that took a lot of time.
Have you always wondered what the use of a color wheel is? When I was younger I always thought the color wheel was just a quick way to see which colors were complimentary. I also knew that the colors between the primary colors (blue, red and yellow) are the colors you will get when mixing them. Well, now that I'm more experienced, I know there is much more to it! If you didn't already know how to use the color wheel, then I would love to explain it to you, 'cause understanding the color wheel and using these theories in your art can really give your artwork an upgrade!
The very talented singer of the band EME, who happens to be my co-worker, asked me if I could make something for her new apartment. And so I did. During the process of making this painting I wanted to make sure that it would come out the way my co-worker envisioned it so I sent her a picture every now and again to keep her up to date. I thought it would be nice to share those pictures here to show the process from beginning to end and to tell what I've learned from the making of this painting.
I am an aspiring visual artist, (screen)writer and filmmaker. On my blog I write about the process of improving my skills, about grabbing every chance I get to become more experienced and about learning from ups and downs. Besides that, I write about everything that inspires me, like film, photography, paintings and psychology.
P.S. I am not a native English speaker, so my English is far from excellent. Sorry for that.
