Short overview!

What a noise coming from outside " thunder"! One of our cats is hiding in my room; at a place i could not imagine a cat fits there! ahhh..
This week I was very busy with my portfolio till Word wouldn't help me anymore :( couldn't save the recovery file and Word tripped again! luckily I saved the images in another map on my mac :) so i'm happy again! haha! I adjusted the perspective of the paintings with photoshop --> warp function! :) So here's an overview from some paintings of mine hihi! Just dropped them random in this post!

Still have to do more :) like the Carp painting!
But now it's time to bake some cake and make cookies for tonight!

New Cow

This way of painting always makes me happy! Don't have to look close in detail, but just paint and go with the brush!

I put on the acryl whitout looking how much was on my brush. You can see the different edges, and really feel them.

Waited for a too long time to make another cow! I love to paint in this wet in wet method, with clear colors. Used prussian blue with black for the dark parts, Sky blue light, king's blue and another blue ( can't remember the name ) and cobalt blue for the white parts. the 'warm' parts are quinacridone rose and transperant red light or something in that way :)

My mum already hung this one in the kitchen, even don't got the time to varnish it! haha

The varnish is reflecting because of the flashlight :)

Karim made a quick replica before my parents arrived at home, so they wouldn't miss the painting... You had to see this a4 paper with 2 fishies! CUTE!

Hihi LOL

Varnished with a 2 inch brush ( from local DIY shop ). Acrylic varnish has a white glow, but it will dry up transparent. This week I will go to the Rembrantshuis here in Dordrecht to buy some new colors. They have a huge sale because he's going to quit with his store! (old) Hope to find some new inspiring hues :) and will buy my favorite colors!!

Ground and contour

Skipped school today oops! But I painted the underground today! 
Made the first layer with the wet-in-wet method and let it dry. After that I began to repaint the contour of the fish on the ground and started the shadow with Marsblack. Only mixed it with lots of water.

Also repainted some scales of the fish, so that the contour with the dark background is more visible. After that I began with the light-yellowish stripes on the floor.. Now its in the varnish, so I will post one new pic when this one is finished all the way, including my name in the lower right corner!!

Carp update

Yes, I finally finished both carps! Yesterday I had the time for it :)
In reality the carps are brighter than on this pic. I used copper so when some light shines on them you can see them glow. Decided to make the background like a pond, only from under water. 75% sandy ground and 25% blue/green water with plants.

Lonely tree

Started a new painting before we went to Gran Canaria for the summer. Those days I was way to busy to finish this beauty in contrast. Today I did. The only thing I had to do was the tree itself. And as happy I was when I started, I am even more happy now :).
The painting is made on a canvas board ( 3D ) 50cm x 50cm.

Oh love the water surface with all those insects! Not that I love insects... YUK but when the do not come too close to me i like to watch them. I won't paint them because I think they ruin my painting. And I do want the attention goes to the flowers. the colorful parts in the painting have to be the eye catchers and not the black little spots with 4/6/8 legs or something...

Made it on a 40x40 centimeters canvas board with wooden frame.

Started with the water, wet in wet. Dried for 1 hour, and then did the 'leaves' also wet-in-wet and made the shadows with pruissian blue, ( love this hue! ) and finnaly ended up with making the flowers of course used the wet-in-wet method!

Two blogs for being creative.

A while ago I started another blog where I dump all sort of posts. Also posts with things I make. I am going to use this blog ( ) only for my paintings and inspiration. 

The other blog is for everything else. :)
So if you are curious and want to know why I don't post that much on this blog, you have to look at the other one!

In two long weeks my vacation starts! Then I am going to paint like crazy!!
For now on I have to focus on getting my Propedeuse  ( finish the first year? )

Got some new inspiration for paintings!!!
unfortunately Fieps didn't made the next day, he was too weak :( It was so said for his or little brother or sister! Now Coco has a new 'friend', a reindeer cuddly toy and a mirror which doesn't talk back, but coco is in love with it!
I hear happy quacks all the time :) Coco is doing well!!

The next picture is just a perfect composition for a new painting :)
Soon I will have the time to start with it!

Way tooooo busy!

Know the feeling? Sometimes I really think I do way to much at once, it's my own fault because i want to do way toooooo much! But i didn't paint for a while .. Unfortunately!

I did make some sketches in my dummy.. these days I take it with me every day and sketch everything what's coming up in my mind or sight ;)

When there is almost no one in my sight in the train i sketch what I see. the first one is my little sister standing to a train door ( between compartments ). I am not going to try to sketch when there are people I don't know in front of me because i think they go crazy. I think it's the Dutch temperament. They already look silly when you are sketching something out of your mind!

The left one is a part of a roof from 3ME Faculty in Delft, during practicum i sketched this one. It looks like a roof from an aold factory only new, if you get it. haha

Im picking up Snoopy (middle one) tonight so she can stay at my place yippie :)! I hope when she's staying at my place she wouldn't be that lonely, because of the other 2 died last month or some earlier.
