Resolutions wk30 pt. 1

This week I was mixing a large batch of paint as preparation for my paintings. As a general rule I don’t paint the sides of my canvases, however as I don’t think most will be framed, the sides do need something to cover all the random streaks. Since I don’t like to continue the painting, … Continue reading

Resolutions wk 28 pt. 1

Whoops, it seems I’ve kind of forgotten to post some of my resolutions! Not that I haven’t made them, but I guess sometimes other things got in the way of me actually posting them.Trying to find some of the more concrete answers to the many questions that still manage to hang about. Well, a few … Continue reading

Resolutions wk 25

These 3 canvases had been waiting for their final destination for some time, I had already given it 2 different tries, and 2 layers of paint as I had already started with them, but somewhere along the way it just didn’t pan out. And they were left to be finished for yet another day. While … Continue reading

Resolutions wk 23

Watercolour portraits are completely not my really thing I’ve noticed. Well, partly that is due to the fact I have to be rather patient when working, as the paper can be too saturated and before I know it I’m actually removing the paper fibre. Oops! Yeah I’ve done that, or at least come very very … Continue reading

Resolutions wk 17: the evolution

Once in a while I remember to make pictures while I’m in the middle of making something. As with paint I have to wait for it to dry, I might as well take a few snapshots. It’s just a good reminder to see how something evolves into the (hopefully) final result. Though minor touch-ups do … Continue reading

Resolutions wk 18

Week 18 was in comparison to 17 much easier. While I was still mulling about 17, I ended up trying to depict something else. It’s meant just for fun, and trying to visualise something quite vague. It’s about letting go of a a certain label. Or more about change and wanting to reinvent yourself. While … Continue reading

Resolutions wk 17

Week 17 didn’t start out too well. Well, actually it didn’t start at all. Once I had conquered my biggest hurdle so far: a Self-Portrait, I was a bit at a loss what to do next. I didn’t exactly know what direction I should take the next few weeks, it was like I had reached … Continue reading

Resolutions wk 13

Honestly, I have no idea how it turned out so…disembodied! It’s kind of freaky to be honest. Even I’m amazed at the result! Honest to god, I have absolutely no idea how I ended up with this. I was happily doodling away with watercolour, and when it all dried up etc and I took a … Continue reading

In your face!

Ok, maybe not exactly in your face, but I dug around to find one of my older portraits I did during my course a couple of years ago. Yeah, pretty is not the word I’d use to describe it. Nor cute or delicate. Also, if I remember correctly you’d only have about 2 to 2,5 … Continue reading

Resolutions wk 11

Honestly, this particular resolution is probably the one and only ever to have managed to still be around 11 weeks later! Though to be fair, the usual resolutions were always a bit vague and just the ordinary generalised ones in the likes of “I want to lose some weight” or “I ought to get myself … Continue reading
