old habits die hard

And again I reached out to the colour red, which has become "my colour". While working on my blue dinner plates I also made this one last week. A new, modern plate for a red girl (more magenta I would say...). And I'm still not sure what to think of it. What I like about the blue ones is the combination of old and new: the old flowers and my drawing connected to it. This one is very "modern" already in it's shape. So what do you think of it?


  1. The red gives it a touch more daring and modern.
    The blue is more soothing and, as you say, more traditional. I think it depends on the intention that want to transmit with your works.
    Because I think the messages are different depending on the color used.
    Good job. I like it.

  2. Hi celine- i agree with the previous comment and think the Color red emphisizes a dangerous mood for this image. Fascinating ! -sus

  3. ich finde pippi in magenta und auf dem quadratischen teller sehr gut - allein durch die farbe wirkt sie stärker. aber sie passt durchaus gut zum blauen alten pippi-geschirr. das bringt spannung!
    schön, dass du bei der dc mitmachst!!

  4. Brilliant, and it is interesting how the blue softens the image just a little while the magenta intensifies.

  5. Hi Celine!!
    Certainly, the square shape is "modern", I think that your picture fits well with this form
    maybe eat on a plate decorated with flowers is more relaxed ha ha.
    I do not know if I could swallow food with that girl pointing at me with a gun! Ja Ja, (no, this was a bad joke)
    I really like the design, I told you once (I think) I love extremes and:
    to eat= passive action / girl pointing with a revolver= violent action
    Is the perfect combination!!!!!!

  6. 't Heeft allebei z'n eigen uitstraling, de Magenta lijkt inderdaad meer gevaarlijk, maar misschien ook wel door het pistool. Teken je ze nu steeds opnieuw?

  7. Hi Céline!!!
    cute changes on your blog!!! :))))))
    Nice weekend!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  8. blue or red, I will go with my forewriters. blue is more traditonal, which gives it a nice twist and red, well this is the hot deal to me! btw. I love your new header. you're pipis will bring you a long way. I know it ;-)
