My work and I have to know eacht other.
I am always surprised by who the work is and what it brings to me.
Returning to the normal world again, I am satisfied that the work has left something behind.
I spend a lot of time behind the drawing board, where my sharply sharpened colored pencils are safely stored.
My drawing table has been dusted and the blinds are in the correct position. The trash has also been emptied!
The drawing paper (180 grams) has to wait a little longer because first I start with the sketch paper, which will have to endure a lot.
With a lot of scratching and stuffing, many crumpled paper ends up in the trash until the whole process can be approved and I have arrived at step 2.
The colored pencils turn my drawing board into a harmonious palette. The colored lines are placed next to each other freehand and with great precision. Where each line has enough distance to allow it to breathe.
Arriving at step 3 I determine the size of the passe-partout. A stock of self-made frames, specifically for my work, are ready to complete the picture.
