Holidays were refreshing

Holidays were refreshing Hi dear visitors! I am back from holidays in Spain where I had a refreshing time… Lots of good food, sun in abundance and long walks on the beach… Of course, I couldn’t do without painting, so here are some snapshots of paintings and sketchbook pages I worked on. Cheers, Linda  

Sketchbook – useful or not?

Sketchbook … I was never very interested in working in sketchbooks, I thought they were only useful when working figuratively, for drawing, defining compositions of “real things” in nature, still life, figures, etc… Because my work is primarily abstract, spontaneous, in the moment… I could never reproduce in large what I made in small format […]

My studio in Spain

My studio in Spain – finally ready! My studio in Spain that we completed last summer is finally up-and-running. This holiday, I can really start trying it out… After a short ‘setup’ of my paints and painting tools, I am ready to roll! Here are a few works on small canvasses and paper. I really enjoy the […]

Studio practice

The last weeks, I am focusing on experimental studies and color palettes. I experiment with a limited palette on a lot of different sizes of paper and all kinds of paper. My studio is a big mess and I run out of space because everything needs to dry, so time to write this short post and upload […]

During this summer holiday, my hubby and I prepared my art studio in our house in Spain so that I can also paint while we are there. Here are some photos of work in progress that I did when the studio was ready. I started on plain paper, with rubbish quality of paint, because I […]

Small abstract paintings on Terraskin paper

I am working on ten small abstracts and they are almost finished, just some small tweaks to do here and there and they are ready. They are made in acrylics and wax pastels on Terraskin paper. Terraskin paper Terraskin is a very smooth paper, made of a combination of mineral powder (>75%) and a small quantity (<25%) of […]

Work in progress – oil & cold wax

Some works in progress… I currently work on three abstract oil & cold wax paintings on wood panels (70×50 cm). They progress slowly because of the many layers. Some of the layers of the first painting so far… the second one… and the third painting… still not happy with them, the battle continues…

Collage break May 2015

As I got a commission for three small collages, I put my paints aside for a while and focussed on making some new collages of 12 x 12 cm and 14 x 14 cm. I had made a number of small collages two years ago as a sidetrack to painting, but people really seemed to appreciate them. […]
