Why I make art quote

I make art to show my soul I am listening.

Are you listening?

Maybe you can’t hear it clearly, or loudly enough…

But I am listening and feeling everyday…pure bliss.

 

I can’t find the reference of who wrote this, but I love this quote.

Why did I open an Online Art School?

While I usually blog here about my art works and travels, I just wanted to share the story behind one of my other major projects which is the opening of Ingrid Creates Online Arts School.  This project has taken up a lot of my time recently- well since coming back from my overseas tour in May.  Since then I have painted here and there, but in the last two months, I’ve been super busy with this project (among a billion others).

You can read about how Ingrid Creates Online Arts School all started here. In this post I wanted to share with you my pedagogic (teaching and learning) and business philosophy behind setting up the school, which I don’t talk about at the school site.  Essentially I wanted a make an online place to share, inspire, learn and create with other artists, art lovers, hobbyists and… Continue reading

Are these blue anenomes on porcelain too dramatic?

As most of you know, I love lustres, particularly exploring all that is possible with them (I do paint with other onglaze paints too, check here, here and here).    So I decided to push the boundaries of my creativity again with lustres for a new porcelain painting, and I’m asking you what you think?  Are these blue anenomes on porcelain too dramatic? 

Here is my latest experiment this week with lustres.

What did I want to achieve?

Most of my paintings start with light – middle values, but I wanted to create drama in this painting, so I started with dark green lustre and worked from there.  You can see the beautiful rich colours of the dark green below, after the first firing:

My lustre painting didn’t work out

I started painting this anenome vase a few months ago, it was an experiment for some new techniques, and I finally had time to finish it.  AND my lustre painting didn’t work out- so I’ll do another one soon.  I’m not saying it’s a bad painting, there are lots of things I do like about it which I’ll show you, but the overall painting is not what I wanted- yes it was an experiment, however it’s important to evaluate what worked an didn’t for the final paintings I’ll do soon.

Here is the finished vase:

1) I wanted to achieve a brilliant red colour, but still get the detail of the petals.  I really liked the flower in the photo… Continue reading
