The Sketchbook Project of Arthouse Co-op

The Sketchbook Project: 2011
Last week I joined The Sketchbook Project.
I ordered a sketchbook and i have 40 days to fill 40 pages!
Then i send it back to the United States.
"Thousands of sketchbooks will be exhibited at galleries and museums as they make their way on tour across the country" Arthouseco-op says. Click on the image for more information.

A very nice idea don't you think? 28728 artists from 94 countries around the world are participating!
Intro page. Pencil, blue pencil and acrylic on Moleskine paper.
On the left there will be a pocket with my biography but i made an info page on the right too.
Spread 1. Blue pencil, color pencil and acrylic on old book paper.
The paper in the background is from a very old book with old fashioned dutch language.
Spread 2. Acrylic, (color)pencil, fineliner, wallpaper and ballpoint on Moleskin paper.
I want to give this book a feminin style with all the things that i love in it.
Spread 3. Acrylic, (color) pencil and ballpoint on paper.
I have to paint a bracelet, so i used this page for it. I love to freestyle and see what happens.

 I made some dessins. It is a new way for me to fill a picture and i learned a lot about the color dodge and screen options in Photoshop.  You can use the same flower and make it look like you draw it many times.
 Baby blue color in the background and it gives another feeling.
Colors can change the whole picture and it's fun to play with it.
These are the roses i used.

 Here i'm working on a painting based on an old sketch i made for a wallpainting in a hotel in Brussel, Belgium. My friend Rosa, wanted this painting for a long time, so i changed the sketch and added some things because i wasn't happy with the old sketch.

 Pencil on paper. 21 cm x 29,7 cm.
 I added some flowers and changed the composition and the girl as you can see above, but Rosa wanted the old composition...
 Pencil on paper, 21 cm x 29,7 cm.
Here you can see i changed the composition. The girl keeps her legs closer to her body and the tree is curved. Because the canvas was square i had to cut of a part of the sketch.

 Acrylic and oilpaint on canvas, 100 cm x 100 cm.
The final painting took me about 5 days. I'm quite happy with the result, there are more girly paintings to come.

Space Granny.

Above: Acrylics and oilpaint on canvas 50 cm x 50 cm / 19,7" x 19,7"
Above: Pencil on paper. 

This painting was made for the lottery of "Willeke Alberti" a dutch singer. She had a gala yesterday in 'Hotels van Oranje' where she gave our book "Kleine Dingen Met Liefde Doen" to a lot of people. We were invited and it was great to be there. I hope Willeke can help a lot of (lonely old) people with her foundation. I finished the painting in a rush so i hope it's allright like this.
