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 haven't been uploading any blogarticles the past months and I also didn't paint that much in my art journal, like I planned to in my very first article this year about my new years resolutions. So what have I been up to?
In March, I went to Berlin for four days with my boyfriend Niels. I had never been to Berlin before, but everybody always said how great, hip and artistic this beautiful city actually is. I had big expectations and the city didn't disappoint me at all. On the contrary, being an aspiring artist myself, I found the city very inspiring and a true hotspot for artists! And here I'm going to tell you why.
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.
