ART GIVES ATMOSPHERE AND COLOR TO YOUR INTERIOR!

No comments

There are so many ways to integrate art into your interior. Art gives color and atmosphere to your home and with art you can indicate a style preference. If you mainly hang on abstract art then the rest of your house will probably be decorated in a modern way. A super-tight minimalist and modern interior with, for example, a tough portrait can also be amazingly beautiful. So … you live out. Before you go to a gallery or an artist, first think of where you would like to hang your painting. View the light and the space you have there. View the color of your wall, maybe you need to adjust it? Always hang a painting at eye level.

  • With paintings and accessories you complete the interior and you can easily change the atmosphere again. When choosing art, it is nice to see a tint from your accent colors in it.
  • Color choice is a matter of looking, feeling, thinking and just doing: You have to like it and you feel good in that use of color. Colors are mood-setting and can influence your mood and feeling.
  • Sometimes you want to have a certain color come back in your living room, for example. Such a work of art on the wall can be a starting point here. Choose a painting that suits the colors in your home, or go for extreme and choose something with a lot of contrast.
  • Lovingly chosen paintings are a reflection of your personality and make your home a comfortable home. Atmosphere, character and charisma are largely determined by it. Tune paintings, furniture and accessories together in order to create a harmonious overall picture.
  • With a stylish interior, art has been popular for centuries: as a reinforcement of the atmosphere, as a beautiful accent or as an exclusive eye-catcher. Add a few good works of art to a sober interior and, voila, you have a stylish, exclusive design.
  • A work of art must be more than a decorative picture. It must touch you, captivate and attract attention. It must be something unique, something unique, which does not have everyone hanging over his couch

Colour in the House

No comments

Back from vacation I always feel like painting again. Along the way and in museums seen a lot of art and beautiful colors and color combinations. The landscape shows many shades of green and the houses in the sun have many beautiful shades of gray and rosette. Color is created by light and you experience that during sunny vacations. The sunnier the more color. The weather in the Netherlands is often cloudy, which affects color and color intensity.

That is why artists, such as Vincent van Gogh, stayed in ao France.
That is why people are happy with color in the house. It radiates a certain intensity.

The above picture is beautiful and bold in terms of color. Many will not bring color in the house this way :). You can also apply color by painting one or more walls or by hanging a colorful painting for example . The combination of a colorful painting with a colored wall also works beautifully and reinforces. Colorful paintings come in all kinds of styles, themes and sizes.

See below three different works by three of our artists. In these works you can see that there has been worked with color in different ways. From very intense use of color to more subtle color use.

The colors and atmosphere around water lilies!

No comments

Claude Monet, as an impressionist painter, also became famous by painting the beautiful water lilies in the various seasons and at different times in one day. He had a very extensive flower garden with a pond, with water lilies, laid out.

Light influences colors and atmosphere. Monet painted the water lilies and the pond many times at different times of the day. The colors change under the influence of mist, rising or setting sun and the like. Monet has recorded this in his paintings in his own way.

Especially the last period of his life, from 1910 until he died in 1926, the garden and especially the pond with its beautiful lilies was an important source of inspiration.
But when he got older he got more and more problems with cloudy eye lenses, which is very difficult for a painter. When he was 82 he completely removed the lens from his left eye. His right eye remained cloudy. This had major consequences for his painting. When an eye lens is gone, the retina also receives UV light that it responds to. So this was the case with Monet. He therefore saw white light not as white, but as a blue tint.

And the white water lilies on his pond were not white for him in his late years, but light blue. He painted them like that!

Beautiful fairytale ponds with water lilies. A theme that inspired other artists to paint water lilies in all sorts of atmospheres, styles and colors. Every artist did that in his own way ..

Spring and art

No comments

You can also pick up the spring in house by means of art . On the other hand, not everyone can pay a Picasso. But something original does not have to be expensive at all. At the friendly priced paintings at Kunstvoorjou.nl many beautiful flower paintings can be found. Another idea; create a self-made Art Wall. You can do this by framing dried flowers, hanging up summer texts and cheerful images. The result is a beautiful mix of different shapes, textures and colors on the wall. Simple but effective.

 

Full of light
To optimally enjoy the spring light you can replace the thick winter curtains for light ones. For example, an inbetween with a linen look. The ‘inbetween’ filters the cheerful sunbeams inwards, but the view remains limited. Immediately replace the dark colored candles with fresh spring colors. A group of candles with different sizes is still cozy!

Spring is coming

No comments

It seemed to last forever; the month of January, at least for my feeling. The holidays are already there, it is still dark outside and the weather is not easy. But there is then …… the month of February! Despite predicting winters for next week, I already feel like spring! With these simple tips & tricks you get the spring into your home in no time.

Fresh shades
A little obvious, but the simplest way to pick up the spring is with a fresh bunch of flowers. A beautiful (field) bouquet with fresh colors will make your interior look brighter.

If you want to create a new look in your interior, without too many adjustments, you can also work with accessories. Replace the cushions on the sofa for copies with soft pastel shades and happy patterns.

In this blog post I will take you into the process from the beginning to the end of a drawing (custom)!

In May, it was my birthday and to celebrate this I gave a customized drawing on instagram . You could leave as a reaction your idea what you would like to have signed and from this I chose a winner. The idea that appealed to me the most was that of Annemieke:

My idea .. Slightly crazy but the backbone with pelvis .. Have just had a back operation and it remains special how your body is! Love! Annemieke
Below I show in 5 steps how I make a drawing, to give you a little bit of an idea of ​​what is involved and how I work.

1. Sketches

First of all I start with a quick sketch. If I am satisfied, I will continue to work it out. I just use print paper to draw, which works best for me, because I often write and sign shopping lists and other things. 🙂

2. Lines

The next step is to outline the subject with fineliner. I usually use the pigma micron from Sakura and mainly the .005 (this is not advertising, I’m just a fan!). The .005 sets fine and narrow lines so that I can work very precisely. With the .01 I indicate where the shadows should come.

3. Work out

The final drawing
Now that I have a good basis, I start with the details. Sometimes I draw a drawing a number of times until I have the right proportions or because I am simply not satisfied with it. And sometimes it succeeds at once!

4. Scan and edit

Close-up of the scan.
When I am satisfied, I scan the drawing. Then I edit the scan and remove everything that does not belong to the drawing (shopping lists, notes, etc.). I also make the drawing more clean by removing a number of lines and small errors.

Process from sketch to final drawing.
5. To the printer

The end result of the drawing of the pelvis and the spine.

The drawing is final and goes to the printer! I have the drawing printed on lightly broken white paper with a nice structure. As soon as I have received the drawing, I wrap it in a plastic cover and go to the new owner!
