Let's just pretend I don't allready have too many hobbies and interests, cause I just started making jewelry! And as you can read in the title of this blogpost, this is my first collection. Yes, first. So that means there is a second collection on it's way!
You can see the whole 'Nafeye' collection here.
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!
I am a photographer, 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.
