A collar of solar webbing

Sneak peak of one of the newer works I made.

One of the first with a big collar with a crystaline structure,
for when, as a lunar being, you need more energy.
Why not get it directly from your surrounding?

This one will be framed and together with new and previous works, displayed at Art Eindhoven.

You can still get free tickets, as far as I know, through this link: https://arteindhoven.nl/deelnemerrelaties

Hope to see you there, and otherwise, next week I'll post pictures of the exposition and the rest of the works I made recently.

Construct study and skeletal meditation

It has been silent for quite some while,
working on quite some things.
And also another exposition coming up,
preparation for that.

Then I remember, I haven't actually scanned/posted the final stages of these.

So here they are, they were too wet to be scanned before, but quite dry right now.

 This being studies and demonstrates a model of their domed homes and how there is more then appears on the surface. The sphere is a very strong form, and for an alien mind, the cube might be more economical in space yet it severely lacks in strength. And why favour space, when you cannot secure the space from the powerful influences of space?

The skeletal structure of moon folk, positioned in a meditative posture, is it just for stability or does it have a higher purpose?

Both have been exposed at Nationale Kunstdagen and will be displayed at the Art Eindhoven.
This is the link for the early birds to get their tickets free and come visit me and more then a hundred other artists: https://arteindhoven.nl/deelnemerrelaties

I am going to expose my art at stand number 91, here's the layout of the exposition: https://arteindhoven.nl/plattegrond/plattegrond_2019.pdf?v=5
This week I'll make an official invitation, pretty picture and such. Until then, enjoy and feel free to respond. :D

Lunar landscape sketches

A few quick sketches to get a better 'feel' of the lunar landscape.
As you will see, the second has a lot less contrast. This is the first version. To allow for darker darks and greater highlights if I wanted to. And in Krita it is quite easy to adjust contrast to get a version like the first image.

Also I hid something in the middle. Like, a whole city. Or two, or even three.



It was also quite surprising how little colour the moon actually has, though most images we have are black and white of course, colour pictures don't actually add a lot. It is very subtle except for what we put on it.

After the Storm, a quick preview.

A quick preview of my art-booth and what I had displayed there.
Better imaged will come when I empty my photo camera..




























Oh and I sold a piece of art. I am very grateful it sold and gets a nice home.
For art never hangs as good at the artist's place as at the place of those who admire it.

Even though I will miss it, I know it is in good hands.

Soon better pictures will be posted, for now, I have to rely on father's quick snapshots with his fancy phone. :p

Before the Storm.. Expositie in de Beursfabriek Nieuwegein


There has been a lot of silence, but this was due to being locked up in my with terpetine fumes filled atelier. Yet! It is mostly finished now, some finishing touches have to be made, signed, etc. But most is ready.

Ready for the exposition, like I mentioned months before I will be having an exposition at the Nationale Kunstdagen (National Artdays) 10 and 11 November in Beursfabriek Nieuwegein.

It will be from 11 to 17:30 on Saturday and Sunday. Free tickets will be available at www.kunstdagen.nl/deelnemerrelatie for all who visit my blog/facebook or whoever finds this link on there and wishes to see me at my art stand.

For now I will have to go silent again, but feel free to contact me.

The two moonpanels in lines

Lately I have gone full oilpaint, sadly I cannot scan them, though I am thinking of showing the photographs I made of the process.

For now though, since my lineart is pure terpetine cause they are meant to be covered, it dries very fast and I was able to scan it. Though one is still in this phase, the skeleton is already fully covered in oilpaint. Nothing of the sketch remains visible.
It is even almost finished, needing just a few more darks and highlights.

Two Moon Panels

I made two more panels, did some sketch before I begin painting in the image with oils.



That feel when you made some nice sketches tho, and then you realize the sketch will be fully covered, destroyed by the oil paint in the next phases of the paint progress.

Luckily I can scan them for later reference and this will be more then likely the last scan I can do in the paint progress since later the paint will need to dry quite some time before it will be able to lay flat on the glass of the scanner.

So the next images might actually be photos. The triptych can't be scanned either way since the distance the frame creates will make everything scanned turn up blurry.
Though if the distance wasn't a problem, you could actually scan a panel when it has a frame glued to it beforehand since only the frame would be touching thus the wet paint wouldn't be touching the glass. Sadly, we cannot change the lens of the scanner to focus on the panel.

Also, getting a few of the paintings I made framed. These will be shown together with unframed work at the Nationale Kunstdagen (National Art Days) this November.
