My blog has moved

As you all may have noticed, I haven't posted much lately... almost a year ago was my last post here. That doesn't mean I've been doing nothing - I've been working on loads of fun projects. But I failed to keep this blog updated, next to my site, my Facebook-page and other stuff.

So I decided to stop blogging here. BUT I will be blogging via my site. I've integrated my (static) site with a blog. You can find my site here: AtelierBrigitte or, if you want to go directly to the blog section, follow this link: Blog by AtelierBrigitte

I hope to see you all there soon!

Onions - part II

I'm slowly working on this painting, but I love doing it. Layer-on-layer the onions are 'growing'.

Onions - part I

Last week classes started and I started working on my onions. It is going to be an oil painting (30 x 40 cm). Only the first onion has (partly) its first layer (don't mind all the charcoal residues...). A lot more work to be done!

I am very enthousiastic about these classes and I think I will learn a lot!

This is a portrait of Molly, done in 'Sketch & Wash' technique. I will donate this portrait to the annually auction for a catshelter: all revenues are for that shelter.

I took a picture of a cute sparrow when I was in the zoo lately. I just had to draw her. Chose to do it in graphite, it was a long time ago I did a portrait in graphite. Here are the first steps of the drawing.

Autumn Leaf

While spring has started here and temperatures are rising, I (finally) finished this oil painting of an autumn leaf. I started this a few months ago, during art class. When I stopped taking classes I forgot about this painting. But now I finished it - I think I like working with oil :)

Last week I finished this portrait of Emma. Her owners wanted this portrait of her because she was very ill at the time. While I was working on the painting I got the message that her condition was so bad, that they've decided to let her go... I hope this painting will give them comfort.

I renewed my site! Not so much the content, but the platform it runs on. Of course I updated my portfolio and these are shown in a great, new slideshow. Take a look and let me know what you think (the site is in Dutch but the photos will speak for itself):
