"10 on 10" ...February 2017, Creative processes...

on 09 februar 2017

Hello, and welcome back to me and to our circle of female photographers around the world. Today I am really excited to show you in to our blogs, the circle are bigger than in a long time and the productions are fabulous. Just follow the links around to everyone and have a great time :-)

How are you? I am having a few problems regarding to photography these days. First of all my computer broke down, so there were no way to edit my images. And I started a project this January, trying to get in touch with my creativity again. In stead of writing my "Morning Pages", I decided to sketch/draw and write. I chose sketch paper, a little too yellow sheets, but a choice is a choice. Then I selected my drawing tool; soft pencils, and then I decided the time aspect. I allow my self about 10-15 minutes for both sketching and writing every morning.

The first day I wanted to draw a tree, because trees are important in my life, they represent Mother Earth, new beginnings, and I have used trees in a few of my photography projects. Since this was the first day in a new year I wanted to celebrate with a tree.

 Then I wanted to sketch a ballerina, because I want to practice the female body, I find it really hard to show movement in my images, that is why I want to study movement while sketching

 My best friend in the whole world lives in Berlin, this is a tribute to her City, where i long to travel. One day I will return, and my dream includes to drive there.

 This winter we have had some fabulous days, the sun is shining, no snow, now ice, just like late autumn. That is why I chose to sketch Sun rise by E. Munch

 This is a part of the West Coast scenery in Norway

 And then I watched a few movies from Ireland, and I would love to travel there too. This is an old building standing in the landscape

 The study of tulips. I loved to photograph tulips, now I will sketch them

 Photography, drawing, art it all is about looking, observing, gazeing.

The closer I came to the end of January I wanted to give up this project. I spent so much time selecting what to sketch. I doubted my ability, so my creativity was not stimulated, but challenged. Then I told a few friends that I was close to give up my project of sketching every day. Then one of my friends offered the greatest gift I have ever received <3 she wanted to help me, by sending over images, paintings, art by the masters for me to sketch after. And after a few days I was really happy again. I could concentrate about my project, to sketch and write. To find my style, my expression, my palette. The frist one was by Leonardo Da Vinci

Julie Margret Cameron - and I called my sketch; From childhood to teenager I

Georgia O´Keffee - I have no idea what this is, but I felt so humble being able to sketch after one of the greatest female artists of our time. And I must admit a little bit proud that my friend thinks that I can make anything after the greatest artists I know - thank you for believing in me <3

 Helmut Newman - I love this style, maybe I will get a suit like this again, I remember my mother made a suit like this for me when I was younger (and taller - lol)

 Jan C. Schlegel - This I called From childhood to teenager II - feels like I am adding years to the models ;-)

Leonardo Da Vinci - I was never interested in horses as a teenager, like a lot of my friends. I find horses pretty, interesting, but so huge. I am terrified of them, and hopefully I will turn that fear one day

Helmut Newton

 

Amadeo Modigliani

Laurits Tuxen - one of the scandinavian "Skagen painters" - this is from the Skagen beach in Denmark, a place where the painters wanted to be because of the light

Jan C. Schlegel - Yeah, since my friend is helping me selecting images to sketch I get to learn a bit about art history as well. Jan C. Schlegel shows his work in a gallery in Oslo this month, so I will try all I can to get in there to have a look at it.

Sarah Moon - she is one of the photographers I will look closer to after getting to know her work. She is a French photographer born in 1941. She started as a model and turned to fashion photography in the 70´s

Erik Werenskiold - this is from a Norwegian children story, the seventh father in the house. A young man came to this house for shelter, but was sent to the next generation (next father in line) to ask, because the father is the owner of the house and nobody can make a decision without asking the father. This is the seventh father, hanging in a horn on the wall. I guess the English title was; The seventh master of the house and was made in to a puppet film by Ivo Caprino

Arno Minkkinen - the magician. He is a well known photographer, Finish-American, known for his self portraits with his body in landscape, and often it is impossible to imagine how he has made it possible to twist and turn his limbs to fit the scenery.

 

Cecil Beaton - well known portrait, fashion and war photographer

Jean Michel Fouquet - photographer that I had not paied any attention to until now

Jan C. Schlegel 

 

I just wanted to show you today's work, that is why I am a little behind schedule for publishing.

Did I tell you about my car? She has her own instagram; @fiat500_bellarosa and she is a little red Fiat 500, called Bella Rosa. The pretty rose. I just got her back from the EU-control and she was approved to continue running the roads of EU (and non-EU country Norway) :-D I was so happy, and I must tell you that I suddenly stopped driving her because I am so affraid of tearing her down so that she stops or anything happen to her. This summer I dream about driving her around in Norway, visiting friends and family. Time will show what I can manage. 

 Thank you for now, I would recommend you to have a look at the stunning images from the beautiful and oh so talented photographer Kim Bajorek from California, USA.

Wow! I am blown away - you are SO talented. And way to go for sticking to your creative goals even when technical difficulties get in the way. We've come to be so dependent on technology and this seems like a good way to get back to the roots of good old paper. Nice work lady!
