Well hello there everyone!
Are you all getting back into the swing of things? Or are you still confused because the holidays are over? I’m definitely still confused here. I’ll start 2015 with a colorful staring post. I like to introduce you to the The Guardians of The Enchanted Forest.
Yesterday, a painting that I worked on for quite some time, finally arrived at its new owner. I don’t have a whole lot of work in progress peeks as this painting truly didn’t settle in its final composition until quite late in the process. And even when it was in it’s final stage of painting, things still didn’t go as planned haha. I even messed it up and had to transfer the entire piece on new paper again. But this was a minor setback, my friends.Read More»
Are you ready? It’s staring time again. I haven’t done a work in progress post in a while and while I was sorting my pictures (for the gazillionth time), I came across one painting from last year, that I didn’t share yet. So here it is!
Have you ever heard of the Dragons In Wonderland?
For the longest of time, I thought it was a myth. However one day, while I was wandering around, I noticed a little playing card on the ground. As soon as I wanted to pick it up, it flew away. My curiousity was peeked. I mean, why is there a card on the ground in the first place? I approached it again, but before I could reach it, it flew away again. Not completely away though. It stopped a bit further along. I stepped closer and…there it twirled through the air again. I know what you’re thinking and you’re right. I had to follow it. Maybe some of you think
“Follow a playing card? Are you mad?”
Why, yes. Yes, I am.
So I followed it.Read More»
As promised! Here’s the post where I share a bit more of the creative process behind the Dancers in the Dragon Forest painting. After the initial research phase, I noticed that I kept hitting a “creative wall”. I wasn’t sure why this was happening, so I decided to write things down whenever I felt I couldn’t capture what I wanted to draw.
Okay. First I noticed is that that working on a larger scale is not THAT difficult. However there are a few elements that are a bit trickier, like getting things on the right scale. I do have solutions for this now. What I find the most difficult thing is the composition and to go even further…the story telling element that I like to have captured. This is what takes the longest time to get right.Read More»
