The first dots….

I made a start with the first dots on this painting, these big dots I made with a new mix, very happy with the glossy result. Used Acrylic Gloss Varnish this time to mix with my acrylic paint.

All my paintings start with a sketch. This time I visited Malaga and tried to capture the feeling of the ocean, sun and that happy feeling of your feeth in the sand. This week I start with the colorpalet and painting.

For this new Money Flow I’m asked to use the whale as an important symbol of the painting. In the background of this photo you see its design. Because this is a large canvas I have all the space to draw this beautiful animal. The whale is a symbol associated with solitude, knowledge of life […]

In every painting there are several tiny paintings hidden. I love to zoom in and see what appears. This is a detail of a new painting I’m working on. This detail could be a painting on its own. I love it so much, I put it on Redbubble so you can order it as an […]

video: Some dotting on a large Money Flow painting

These are the last dots on a very large Money Flow painting I’m working on. I use a mix of gold colored acrylic paint with a gloss medium and a special prepared brush (hard) to make the dots. I love the gold colores because the metallic give the dots an even more intens look.

Painting with real money

This is a detail of a new Money Flow painting I’m working on. Number 8 to be exact. And yes I do use real money in my paintings. Coins of alle sizes and colors to make the Money Flow a painting that is connected with the real money flow in our lives.  

Background & base for Money Flow painting

Sometimes the background, the base of a new Money Flow painting almost looks like a painting by itself. Love the energy that is in this one already. It is a bigger canvas this time (60 x 60 cm). I just put my intention on an exhibition in Malaga beginning of 2017 so I started with […]

Welke penselen heb je nodig om dots te maken?

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text letter_spacing=””]Om van die mooie ronde glanzende dots te krijgen heb je naast veel geduld en oefenen ook de juiste dottools nodig. Sommige dotten met stokjes of van die nagelstylist tools. Maar ik maak mijn dot penselen zelf. Je koopt daarvoor ronde penselen, in verschillende formaten. Het maakt niet uit welke kwaliteit want we gaan […]
