Visual art techniques

On this page you will find examples of the possible materials and techniques I use.

Look at my instagram for more examples!

Wet-on-wet painting

Wet-in-wet drawing is a technique in which on a wet paper, diluded aquarelpaint is used to paint. The flowing quality of this medium makes it so that the painter is challenged to let go of the ending result. Furthermore, this technique lets the painter paint with soft colours.

Wet-on-dry painting

The wet-on-dry technique is a way to challenge the painter to keep taking distance and paint with restraint. With diluded aquarelpaint the painter paints on dry aquarelpaper in a crossing movement in which they will add small amounts of paint onto the paper. This technique offers a lot of themes to work with and is great for biographical work.

Dynamic line drawing

With dynamic line drawing you are challenged to keep moving. In a playful linegame you fill your paper with colourful lines without lifting the crayon of pencil from the paper. From this movement a figuration will appear and brought forward.

Formdrawing

With formdrawing you follow a rythm in a solid shape.  It's nice if you have a need for structure and bounderies but still need the freedom to move.

Pastel chalk

with pastel chalk the focus lies in the experience of the colours and the soft powder as you rub the chalk into the paper. With pastels there is the possibility to work with many themes.

Colored pencil

With pencil you experience more of a firm hold while drawing. Different types of drawings are possible. Like the frowth of a flower, develop your own mandala or geometric drawing. Every exercise asks something different of you.

Steatite

Steatute is a soft stone which van be molded into shape with a file. It feels very nice if you want to work with your hands. From the steatite loveley figurines van appear as you work.

Modeling with river clay

Clay is terrestrial and asks for attention to kneed it thoroughly. I like to start with a meditation exercise to bring the attention to yourself in the present. from a whole you mold the clay into shape with your hands. this could be an animal, a landscape, a geometric or platonic shape, or even an abstract figure.

Collages

Collages are accessible, tangible and have many possibilities. You can print out your images, look into magazines, draw, write, colour or paint with a material of your choice. The themes in your collage are unique to you and tell your story.
