Took quite a few walks recently, and enjoyed taking some pics & playing around a bit with the colors and structures. I was especially enchanted by the sunlight shimmering through the leaves, creating a subtle luminous and dreamy atmosphere which I found incredibly calming.
There is a new mixed media painting in the works, which I might post as work-in-progress update in the near future…we´ll see how it goes.
I have a holiday ahead of me and am determined to find the time to finish my two handsome faunian fauns. So keep an eye on this space – there will be news from Faunia in a week or so. The last weeks were too tiresome for me to seriously interact with my muse. At least I took some photos on yesterday´s stroll with my beloved four-pawed-buddy Nando, and having my camera with me I also captured some (for me) everyday-views and quickly played around with colours to “jazz them up”. I really intend to take my camera with me more often, because then I take in my environment in a more intense way, especially when I walk around areas I find extremely familiar and normally would not pay attention to details. And – as you might have noticed – I find animals very inspiring, how they act and how they look, so there will be more of that in my blog´s “photo-corner”. But behold – this will not turn into a sole photo-blog ;-), as there are too many interesting areas in creativity to explore…
What about you, dear readers, what is your personal method of inspiration? How do you get yourself into a creative mood to start with a creative project, and keep up with it until it´s finished? I´d love to hear from you.
as I am busy working on my recent maquettes and doodling a bit by and by, at this point there is not really anything to show but I felt like posting a nice little something – so these snaps I did a few days ago come in handy. Again, I played around with them a bit, without a plan or concept what their transformations should look like in the end. I just started working on them and stopped when I liked the result 😉
I took these pics when trodding along my usual walking paths which I – I admit it – find quite ordinary. But when taking my camera with me on purpose and then taking a closer look of the views I captured when working on them, it does change my taking-for-granted-attitude each and every time. It´s nice out there! And spring is on it´s way! So enjoy and have a good week ahead.
