On the first of january this year I wrote a blogpost about 2016 and what my new years resolutions for 2017 are. Now that it's almost april I want to look back on these resolutions, to see if I made something of it. Are you curious as well?
Make at least one painting a month
Well, besides painting in my art journal, I didn't really make a painting on a canvas.
But I'm working on a new project of multiple paintings around similar themes, which I hopefully can exhibit at the end of this year.
Write a new short film
As I mentioned in my blogpost ' '16 going on '17 ' I allready started writing a shortfilm in december 2016. Well, I'm kinda struggling with the story, so I'm focusing on other things now (mainly painting) to pick it up again later.
Make an illustrations portfolio
No, I didn't really work on that yet. Although, maybe you can consider some of the paintings I made in my Art Journal as illustrations?
Keep an Art Journal
YES! I did this. I didn't paint something every day, but it went very well. In january and february it went quite well, but in march I didn't really feel like it. I'm getting back at it in april!
Experiment with photography
Yeah well, I didn't make any photo's besides the ones I make for my blog, so no. But when I wrote the blogpost with the new years resolutions, I thought that I would buy a new camera later that month, but I didn't, cause there we're other costs which made me decide to wait a while before buying a new camera.
Experiment on film
No. Read the above.
Update this blog more often
Compared to 2016, I updated this blog quite well! But no, not as much as I was planning to, so that's something that still needs to get better.
What were your new years resolutions? And did you manage to succeed till now?
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.
