I try to go back to smaller painting supports. It is still part of my BIG and Fearless painting process though. It is weird because when you pull for the first time a huge canvas or paper to paint on it, you are affraid of the big amount of blank space in front of you. But once you get used to it, I find it even harder to express myself on smaller spaces as I used to. Strange !
So for conquiring this uncomfortable feeling, I bought several 11″x14″ canvas boards to play.
Yesterday (monday january 31st) I wanted to get out of my comfort zone regarding my use of colours. I love purple (that is my all time favourite with blue) but noticed that I only use it in tiny amount here and there, so I wanted to play with it in the background.
Here is the result of my afternoon creative playtime from yesterday:
Of course, I have no idea where these will lead me. I am just having fun, trying to pull emotions out of inside. Trying to shake off the pressure I am putting on my shoulders to get my art to the World, to say “hello, I’m there. My name is Nolwenn and I am an artist, you should check my artwork“. It does not happen as planned, I am facing unexpected events that force me to see things differently, to juggle with other ideas. After the frustration, the sadness and (don’t tell anyone) a bit of anger, comes the boost in my butt to move forward no matter what.
Talking of all this, as I told you recently, I will soon open an online shop. You’ll be able to buy beautiful prints of my artworks, and later this year handmade journals (and I think other things that i’ll develop). If you like what I create and want a piece of my World in yours, don’t hesitate 🙂 And if there is a specific artwork you would like a print of, email me 🙂
I am also creating a portfolio so it will be way easier to see what I do !
