It is all about connecting. Connecting with your fellow artists, with your materials – even connecting to this world.
This artwork represents that connection.
To me, creating a design always starts with the same question. What will happen? Usually I just grab a couple of random materials and start experimenting. Try to feel the connection between the things I do and don’t know. While exploring different techniques I absorb new knowledge.
Never forget that art is part of a larger process.
I like to see art as one great experiment to which we all contribute and connect. My aim is that this sketchbook inspires you. Just observe it and think: “Whatever happens, happens. I will make compositions on every page. Invent harmonies that normally only exist in dreams.”
Try it out. Try everything! And when a result makes you happy, take it to the next level. Make it the same, but different. Make it darker, lighter, smaller, bigger. Make it colorful, abstract or realistic. Don’t hold back and surprise yourself by applying different techniques.
Pablo Picasso once said: “Painting is just another way of keeping a diary.”
Let this be yours.
Much love, Camille
