The ‘Ateljee’

All the materials and supplies I brought from Holland (by plane!) have been unpacked. Everything I need to make my ‘Artist in Residence’ period successful is there…., well that’s what I hope.

Pencils, paper, scissors, glue, my golden acrylics (a few of them actually), writing pad, gel medium, templates, stamps and an inkpad.

The big black suitcase that travelled all over the world already with Lesley Riley carried this time not only my sewing machine and yarns but also fabrics in several colors while my new daylight lamp and a travel – flat iron + ironing pad are completing my gear.

After cleaning- and tidying up the place and ‘organizing’ an extra table I was ready to start.

My intention is to investigate the phenomenon and the aspects of ‘Light’; the light in Finland.

From experience I know that, compared to the days in Holland, the daylight in Finland is much brighter, the sky is more- or deeper blue while the light itself can change within hours in many different colors and shades.

Also I want to experience the impact of ‘the light’ on myself, working at Hovinkartano with drawings and fabrics and to see if I – with some help of what one calls ‘discipline’ – can stick to my original plan.

When did you need ‘discipline’ in your creative process…?

    He Dymphie wat leuk om je blog te lezen en je bent hopelijk toch fijn aan het werk.
    Licht en de intensiteit van licht is het meest bepalend hoe wij kleur ervaren.
    Het gebruik van kleur van de Nederlandse schilders is anders dan die van zuid Frankrijk of Mexico.
    Zo zal ook het Finse licht je kleur gebruik bepalen en het resultaat zal iets zijn wat je nooit in eigen land had kunnen maken vanwege dat andere licht.
    En de discipline ! Voor mij is dat heel belangrijk wachten op inspiratie werkt voor mij niet door te doen krijg ik inspiratie = transpiratie.
    Succes en laat wat van je werk en workshop zien.

    Liefs Marion
