Hundred days of creating art

#the100dayproject is a free art project that takes place online.

Every spring, thousands of people all around the world commit to 100 days of exploring their creativity.

At the beginning of April 2019 I saw the first posts appear on Instagram and I decided to become one of these thousands.

Tiny dots

I named my own contribution #100daysoftinydots because, well, the project had to last a hundred days and all of my work usually exists of lots of tiny dots.

I decided to create a small work every day, like mini canvases, magnets and cards. And maybe once in a while a sketch or an update of a larger work.

Ambitious

But after a few days of creating, photographing and posting a new work, I had to admit my ambitions were too high.

In order to reduce the pressure for myself, I changed my plans. I would make a hundred works, just not in hundred days.

On this page you will find the most recent contributions as I have posted them on Instagram.

Slowly making progress on this dot painting.

Sometimes I am loving the way it’s coming together and other days I am ready to start another painting. But after painting for so many hours there’s no way I am quitting this one. 😂

I asked my daughter if she wanted to pick a dot painting of mine, to take with her when she will move into her first own home this weekend. This was the painting she chose.

Female Connections

I think she picked the perfect one for her, it is about all the connections we make with other women in our lives.

My dear Ghislaine, enjoy your new home and your student life, live your life to the fullest and know I will always love you and support you.

I finally, finally finished the background of this canvas.

After painting hundreds of bright coloured circles, I started to paint the last layer: the tiny dots.

The size of the canvas is 60x80 cm and the final painting will hold around 57.000 tiny dots.

This will take some time 😂

I added some orange and purple big dots yesterday and I am looking forward to add some more this week!

I am also thinking about the final layer: tens of thousands of tiny dots. The top dots will have white tiny dots on them, but I am not sure yet about the rest of the colours. Luckily there is enough time to change my mind a couple of times. 😂

The beginning of a new dot painting. Working on the background, painting circles on circles before I paint the tiny dots.

At this stage everything is still possible but with every brush of paint I am limiting my own choices. And that’s not necessarily a bad thing.

I thought painting the last dot on this wooden panel would finish my painting.

Apparently not.

Stepping away from this dot painting, I feel like something is off. I guess it’s the black border.

Before I paint the edges a different colour, I will just keep it like this for a couple of days.

Voor elk schilderij mix ik voor de #tinydots mijn eigen kleuren in kleine potjes. Vaak zijn die potjes nog niet helemaal leeg, terwijl het schilderij wel al klaar is.

Dan heb je twee keuzes: laat de potjes open staan en trek er na een paar dagen een stuk plastic uit zodat je ze kunt hergebruiken óf maak er nog een schilderij mee.

Deze keer koos ik voor het laatste. En omdat dit schilderij een brede zijkant heeft én er nog een beetje verf in de potjes zit, ga ik de zijkanten ook nog dotten.
