Art Art Talk Digital Sketches Journal

2016 was a colourful year!

The iPad sends feature sets of photos every day. They do a great job. It’s like someone saying “Hey, I love this photos, I love your art!”

I did a lot of sketches (as I call them). The one the algorithm sent stands out from similar efforts at the time. Just the right balance of dark and light.

Found

I found this image in a neglected place on my iPad,  in an app  I was trying out. I must have made it some years ago. Today it resonated. I’ve been thinking about the value of containment and the value of a clear focus on a point.

Tree

I’ve been looking at trees. In life and in art. One influencing the other. The artist on my mind is Ergon Schiele. There is a signature the whole, also present in every stroke, just as a tree carries it’s essence in every branch.

I’ll call this image: I am a tree.

Vincent van Gogh 1853-1890

I’ve mentioned Vincent van Gogh in a few posts in my blog.  He is important in my life in that I grew up with him. He was an artist I liked from the start, we had a book at home.  Of course, we were from Amsterdam.  Also saw a great movie while quite young – well before the Kirk Douglas one.  Read Lust for Life.
