Robin Hundred Days of Color 2

Every moment of our lives we are surrounded by color. It is ‘a common thing’ and we are used to its appearance, maybe take it for granted, and we easily can forget about its beauty and the impact it has on our lives emotionally. It is however one of our senses and it deserves more attention. This morning a Robin was hopping through the garden, and I immediately saw its red breast showing up. The vibrant red/orange is something we…

Hundred Days of Color 1

Every day again and again, I feel inspired by colors. Besides the fact that I work professionally with color, it feeds my creative soul. But I was given a push to the movement to start ‘Hundred Days of Color’ when observing the stunning colors of the Hydrangeas in the past few weeks. They start blooming in July in the most beautiful colors in many shades. Maybe the fact that, in Autumn, every other colors of nature begin to fade and…

Monday musings

I love just sitting, apparently doing nothing and stare in the distance, musing about all sort of creative thoughts that wander my mind. All these things that add another dimension to my life since my children are grown up, have children of their own and need me in another way than when they were younger. The stream of creative thoughts that never ends, I can’t keep up with it and often feels like chaos. Until the moment I start drawing…

Lovely Hydrangeas

I can’t get enough of Hydrangeas, seen for the first time while being on holidays in Brittany when I was a little girl. Those big bushes of color in all shades of blue and pink make me wonder and marvel. When I tried to grow my own I preferred the blue ones, being a lover of blue for whole my life. But I didn’t succeed, they all turned pink in the end. Of course I appreciated their attempt and beauty…

Light and shadow

Everything exists of shadow and light, sometimes it’s vibrant and full of color, sometimes colors are fading away. It doesn’t say anything about the quality, it’s just how it goes. Some things stay in the light, other disappear in the shadow, maybe for a little while to appear again. It’s a play, a play of shadow and light.

Color-studies

Making color-studies makes me happy, I’ve made so many in the past while doing my study and research to become a color consultant. I have been attracted to colors as long as I know, and it soon became a passion. I always used to paint in a colorful way but I also love to change my interior from time to time, which could be once a month, ow yes. So when I started to think about color consultancy I focused…

Where color meets pattern

I have a passion for colors and patterns. Playing with watercolor and lots of water, seeing the paint flow, going it’s own way blending, feels like magic. I can sit at my desk for hours doing this. The result is piles of paper with circles, dots and splashes which gives me an enormous mount of inspiration. I sometimes make cut-outs, or use them as backgrounds for new paintings. My ‘professional watercolor’ tubes from Winsor & Newton are my favorites, they…

Kolorcircles

I am not that kind of person who writes a lot. I have lots of thoughts, feelings and ideas that I would love to write about. But I always feel as if there are not enough words to express my feelings and thoughts and then I am feeling blocked. When talking, I always use to many words, because I would like people to understand the things I want to say in the same level of detail I see it in…
