’Noodlot’ is the title of a Dutch book (literature) by Louis Couperus (1890) I read during my study of the Dutch language. It means ‘Fate’. The painting is based on the first sentence in the book: “His hands in the pockets, the collar of his fur coat up, Frank walked through the blowing snow, along the lonely Adelaide Road in the evening.” (Google translate Dutch-English, so don’t blame me for any mistakes).
First time I worked with acrylic paint. Because I’m not an experienced ‘real life’ artist, I followed an online class to learn how to draw lines of action. The first line I made was with a pencil. After that I took my dip pen and made some extra lines.
I kinda liked it, so I decided to give it some color with acrylic paint. That came out awful, because I don’t know anything about colors at all. It looked like a combination of Winnie the Pooh (colors) and Paddington Bear.
I wanted to throw it away in the garbage bin, but decided to put on a new layer of paint. And a new one. And… Well, finally it was finished.
And the horse you rode in on…
