Squares, tilted ovals, round forms are the parts of this composition. I was a little bit into abstracts these last days, but I still see these forms as flowers. Maybe that is because of the colors. I love bright colors and these days of spring they are all around us.
Yesterday I gave myself an assignment: ‘design a pattern using only the computer’. So I learned how to turn a red round shape into an apple, making leafs out of ovals. The image above is the result.
The orange apples I added because today it is Kingsday here in The Netherlands. On Kingsday everything turns orange because of the king’s famous anchestor Willem van Oranje (oranje = orange) who sort of started The Netherlands back in sixteenth century.
A new pattern design. I need to change or add some things, but I’m not sure what. Maybe looking at the pattern for a while will reveal it to me. So I printed it and it is on my wall.
Flowers for consolation after the terrible attacks in Shri Lanka on this Easter sunday
What about some folklore this season? Lots of flowers, different dessins in one piece of clothing. And bright colors of course. I still have to work a little bit on that last one in this black and white pendrawing.
‘Have a nice cup of tea, love!’
I made this one in honour of Heather and Jan, who came to visit me the other day. We had a conversation about the friendlyness in the English language.
This is a paper collage and drawing in which I later put some of my patterns. I reworked that again digital. A whole lot of work for one image and I think there is some more work to do on this one. It is funny: the more I know about drawing, scanning and digital reworking the longer it takes to finish a piece of art.
I am selling my dessins on … pillows, bags and more. Together with Marian Sturkenboom (jewelery) and Olivia Bertus (bags etc) I sell my art at Atelier Sacha Wendt. So much color and fun together in one shop! Come and take a look.
