Prove yourself takes time…

Anyone who creates music or art, ever knows when you say to yourself; 'Do you know, I'm tired.. let's try something new '. After much searching where your style is pretty much home, you do always try with something new to come up. Whether a website, is a logo or art; you're sure to extremes! A nice mix between retro and modern, realism and abstract shapes. And then there comes a time when you've reached a certain level, which it seems to be easier to see the relationships to draw one.

Sometimes you will receive questions at a time; People who wonder if you are pulled over, or you did not use overhead projector for the things you make.. Or in the case of music; whether you are original enough and no pictures mixes. Of course you use roughly an example to outline from. I do this then only as a concept, to see if the style matches what I want to achieve. However, the proportions, the Colours, the style you want to apply are always unique and that takes of course much time to teach yourself. So for the people who might sometimes think that I cover or projectors use; Sorry, but I have to ask unfortunately disappoint you.

Therefore I will now explain what my process and what steps I take.
In this case it concerns a drawing with multiple techniques per layer; ink, watercolor / ink and acrylic ense.

  1. First, grab a sample, or your own design. You measure what you want and where.
    Pay attention to the proportions and look closely at; this is in fact your base (and the most spirited part of all!). Once you have roughly the first relationships and are well over a light pencil (mainly, for example, an H2), you can continue to point 2.
  2. Now you can get the colors for the background and bottom layer with watercolor coloring. The mode of use as well as watercolor pencils Derwent Inktense. Occasionally blow dry and iron if necessary. Hereinafter referred to point 3.
  3. Because you are now good relations, this should be pretty easy; You look at the picture and then put the ink on it with thin lines. I use this Steadler fine-liners (but may also Rotring).
  4. Now you already have a good foundation, you can start using Indian ink to accentuate the lines added.
  5. colorize. Be creative and come up here himself a meaning to, Use colors that suit you best feeling at that moment. Your passion namely gives the best results if you're really in the middle of 'your flow’ is.
  6. Framing but!

In short; Heel veel oefenen, lezen en video’s bekijken. Vooral het kijkwerk is erg belangrijk, vanuit hier vorm je namelijk je basis.
Naast dat je je ervaring voortdurend verrijkt, moet je ook het lef hebben om fouten te maken. Dit klinkt misschien gek, maar het gebeurd regelmatig dat iets totaal anders uitpakt dan je verwacht.
You have those moments sometimes strong tendency to crumple your work and throw away, of je doek compleet opnieuw wit te gaan schilderen…
Maar waarom zou je, als je basis niet eens slecht is? Stopped you forever walk with learning, when you fell for the first time?
Drawing and painting, this is absolutely no different. If you really want, then you can and something is wrong? Do not panic; improvise!
Dat is hoe ik het tot op heden gedaan heb en nog steeds doe, want er is nog altijd genoeg om aan te werken en te leren.

Hopelijk tot een volgende expositie 😉

Yours sincerely,
