Zodiac signs...







Dit is waar ik mee bezig ben op dit moment. Dit zijn kleine studies voor grotere schilderijen. Afmetingen van beiden: 20 x 20 cm.

This is what I have been doing lately. These are small studies for bigger paintings.  Both are 20 x 20 cm in size.

  2. Dankjewel Renske!

    Thank you Rita! I think I'll paint the animal signs first, and then the human signs. I already have ideas how to paint Gemini, the twins.

  7. A lovely series, I can't wait for the next ones. I like your choices of background colors suggesting different moods. I don't know much about the zodiac signs, but the ram seems fiery and determined...

  9. I really admire the way you express form in watercolour and these are excellent studies. I do hope you get around to doing Pisces.

  10. Strong and fresh colors really make the paintings vibrant. Your technique has really developed into a strong one.

    What would happen if you touched just a small bit of yellow into the next one? It would give you the color triad the other two are part of. Just an idea. I'm always looking for the triad to make a painting complete. Triads are three colors equal distance from each othe on the color wheel and always complement each other.

  12. Thank you everyone! I'm so glad you like them!

    @Kev and Introverted Art: Capricorn and Pisces may be sooner than you think, it's Sagittarius and Aquarius I am worried about.

    @Jenny: My idea was to give every sign a colour theme. Aries has to be red, and Taurus needed a kind of blue, but maybe a darker blue than this. I thought a soft green for Gemini. It's good to do small paintings first, to work out ideas.
