Op een witte tile werden een paar druppels  ecolineverf gemorst. Deze  soort verf geeft heel intense kleurschakeringen.  Daarna ging de tegel de slazwierder in en door het zwieren verscheen een grillig uitwaaierend effect. Daarna heb ik de open stukken gevuld met bolletjes die nadien  werden bijgekleurd met kleurpotloden. Dit is een heel  éénvoudige en ontspannende manier van tekenen maar je kan nooit tweemaal hetzelfde resultaat bekomen. Dat hoeft ook niet; elke tekening is uniek en de moeite waard!

I have trown a few drops of ecolinepaint on a white  tile. This kind of paint gives beautiful bright results.  Then, I have put the tile into a saladspinner to create a kind of  whimsical “fanning out”. The open spacies were filled with orbs and coloured with ordinary colourpencils. This is a very  easy and relaxing way to make a drawing but you can never receive  twice the same result. That is not necessary; every tile is unique and worthwhile!

      Thank you Michele, putting a piece of paper (with some drops of paint) into the salaspinner gives always surprising effects. I’m glad you like it!

    Wow! Wat mooi gemaakt! Precies de goede verhoudingen van kleuren en orbs!

      Ria Matheussen says:

      Dank je wel Ilse, de verf werd gebruikt als string (ik wist natuurlijk niet op voorhand hoe die eruit zou zien) maar eigenlijk vond ik het wel leuk en ik ben blij dat je deze tile ook mooi vindt.

    Ooooh, Ria, that’s amazing! I love the structure and the color, both. It’s a “feel-good” piece!!

      Ria Matheussen says:

      Thank you so much Joyce. The honours go to an old saladspinner that is responsible for the structure and Ecoline gives always intensive bright colours!

    This is fantastic, Ria! The contrast between bright colors and dark orbs with the gemstones took my breath away as soon as the page appeared!
    I loved your post on the Maori, and tried several times to post my comments, but have nothing to show for it. I hope I haven’t broken the internet 😉

      In the summer of 2016, I followed a few lessons of painting with watercolours (because I liked to use them as a background). In one of these lessons the teacher showed us paintings made with ecoline. The colours are completely different from watercolours, more bright and intensive. It is always pleasant to try something new and so we did with a saladspinner. I liked the result immediately and here is one of the results. I’m glad you like it.
      When someone post a comment, the comment is not appearing immediately. First I had to admit and than it appears on the screen. You did it in the right way.

      Ria Matheussen says:

      Thank you Anita for this kind feedback, makes me happy, especially because you like the gems, I’m not so familar with them and about the colors: the saladspinner did the job!

      Thank you Gudrun for such a quick comment, makes me very glad.
      This is really a very easy technique, just put the tile in a saladspinner, do a little spinning and there you are. The next thing to do is just draw a few orbs (and Perfs)
