About Ibbel Dibbel

Why Ibbel Dibbel

“My name is Ibble Dibble number one and I have no dibble ibbles.”

That’s how we started a drinking game on a memorable evening in 1995 in the rainforest of Cape York, Australia. I played the game with my sister, my partner and two new friends we met during our travels.

With the help of a scorched wine cork, lots of fun, slip ups and even more booze, the evening ended for all of us with lots of dibble ibbles. And with our faces covered in black dots.

And thanks to The Crown a lot more people know how to play Ibble Dibble!

Very wisely we didn’t play the game any more, but the name Ibbel Dibble stuck and became Ibbel Dibbel. We called our new cat Ibbel Dibbel in 1998 and it was the name I chose for my social media accounts and my business.

It’s all connected with my love for Aboriginal art and especially Aboriginal dot painting. Dibble ibbles are also pretty dots! And looking at it like that, I can say I made my very first dot painting in Australia. On the faces of my fellow travelers.

These days I limit myself to canvas, wood and paper.

Process

I work very intuitively. I start with choosing the size of a canvas or canvas board. The background I make for a new painting is usually influenced by the painting I worked on before. Like using the same colors or doing something completely different, as a reaction to the previous work.

So although I usually do have an image in mind, this does not mean that it will look exactly like I’ve envisaged. Most of the time I will replace my chosen colours or add some extra colours. And while I am working on the top layer, the layer with the tiny dots, I continue to determine and change my own rules. Think of the shapes, the number of dots per colour, the movement in the design. Until I am satisfied with the emerging image.

In addition to original paintings in various sizes, I also make hand-painted cards, small canvases that can stand on a mini easel and magnetic mini canvases.

Please contact me if you have a question or suggestion, I would be great to hear from you.

Love,

Yolanda

Mijn favoriete wilde bloem: de cichorei. Elk jaar kijk ik tijdens mijn wandelingen met Flynn, mijn Ierse Terriër, naar de bloemetjes met de prachtige blauwpaarse kleur. Dit jaar lijken ze wat lichter dan voorgaande jaren.

Mijn eerste CONNECTION dot painting: een schilderij dat je bijna dwingt om naar binnen te kijken. Een stukje rust en introspectie, verbinding van buiten naar binnen.⁣ (2018)

Onverwacht warm vandaag, daar past wel een vlammend plaatje bij! 🔥⁣

Vorige week ben ik aan twee nieuwe kleine canvas doeken (20x20x4,5 cm) begonnen. Ze hebben allebei een oranje ondergrond gekregen.⁣

En waar ik op het ene doek allemaal losse dots in heel veel kleuren aan het schilderen ben, komen er op dit doek gedotte lijnen. Nog steeds met de kleuren die ik dit jaar al vaker gebruikte: warm rood, licht- en korenblauw, koper en heel licht roze.

Dit CONNECTION schilderij maakte ik in de zomer/herfst van 2020, tijdens één van de Corona lockdowns. Qua kleuren geïnspireerd door de kleuren van de wilde bloemen die ik tijdens mijn wandelingen zag. Maar de vorm is duidelijk bepaald door het gebrek aan verbinding tussen mensen, het gebrek aan connectie in deze tijd. Iedereen is er wel, maar net niet dichtbij genoeg.

I love to paint dots on the sides as well, especially on this 20x20x4,5 cm canvas. The painted sides give the painting a flowing effect, as if the paint flows from the canvas.

It will be available in the LINES collection on my website this coming week for 75 euro including VAT.

That Sunday feeling! Relaxed and happy with my #dotpainting now I have painted dots on all the sides as well.

Using the colours of my last painting I created a new painting with dotted lines.

Tomorrow I’ll paint the sides as well. I love to paint the sides but they always take a lot of extra time, especially when you touch wet dots and have to restore that area. 😇
