What freedom is... This is the first post of a new theme entitled "What freedom is", I have already explained in my last post what my posts are going to consist of (click here to check it out).
Vulnerability, honesty and freedom are ideas that i want explore through my creations. Fragility is especially an idea that I really wanted to express and discover through this process.
What is fragility? What is vulnerability? What does it mean to be honest, capable of loving, capable of relying on people?

This is basically what the following posts are going to be about : a vulnerability experimentation through art.

Intimacy and vulnerability without painting

Dear lovely readers,
I’m writing this post because it has been a while since I’ve talked to you, other than through my art. I think we should catch up so grab a cup of tea and sit back to read...

Here’s a little update/on my mind post. 

I’ve been craving connections, art and vulnerability lately. That fear of being honest and beautiful took control of me which is why I’ve been craving the poetry that comes from insecurities.
I’m writing this post because I think you should know that my content is about to evolve into something more intimate. This post is the transition between my comfort zone and vulnerability. I’ve also been extremely busy with school,  as I’m having a really intense week of exams and I’m also trying to figure out what I’m going to do later. So, that can also explain my lack of “contribution”, I’ve just felt really tired lately and busy.
I don’t know if I’m still going to post weekly (I’m probably going to post a little less frequently). I also doubt that changing conten…

Soft emotions - draw with me

Image
So that's a quick little drawing that I made a few days ago entitled "soft feelings". It's about starting the new year with a head full of dreams, a heart full of love and happiness. I wanted to make a chill video that I can watch back to remember how it felt.

Tell me what you think about it, I would love to know!
Thank you ever so much for the ones who read my blog posts or watch my videos, it means so much to me!
I do not own the music of this video. Music : a l e x - sleep next to me

Snapshots of December + for the New Year

Image
That's it, we're in 2018! December went by and it's now time to share with you some snapshots of December. I really enjoy writing these kind of posts, taking pictures helps me to be more mindful and creative!













I wanted to end this post with a collage I made, reuniting all my posts.


I think it has been almost six months since I've made this website, how crazy is that? 6 months!!! To me, that's A LOT. I'm so glad that I started this blog because it allows me to create new content every week and come out with new ideas regularly. At first, I found weekly posts quite challenging but I slowly got used to it and I'm really happy about that! To be honest, I've never thought I'd be "blogging" a few years ago and here I am, typing those words...

Thank you to those of you who read my posts and support me, it really means a lot to me!

I wish you all a new year full of love, happiness and creativity!

Love,

RAPTURE - an artwork's backstory

Image
July 14th              -              20 : 17pm            - a journal entry –
I have just finished this painting that I had in mind last night.
[Strokes]
This painting is very special for two reasons : the first one is that it came out to me stroke by stroke - I didn’t know exactly where I was going with this painting but slowly - little by little- it revealed itself under the natural light of my window.
And I saw what the big picture was going to be.
The second reason is that I have never thought of painting something like that before, it just happened and when I finished it, I just stood there, in front of it - with questioning eyes and a wordless mouth. That painting is certainly something I’ve never felt before which I think is why it looks so different from what I’m used to do.
Again. There’s no way I can possibly describe what I feel when I start to paint. It’s just unbelievable.
I made this painting this afternoon, in about three hours, in only one sitting, as if I was reading my fa…

Travel diary - 5 days in England (pt.1)

Image
As some of you may know, I've been away for five days in England for the holidays! We visited a new city each day : Newmarket, Cambridge, London then Bishop Stortford.

Everytime time I travel somewhere, I always keep a travel diary where I like to draw landscapes I see, the food I eat and the memories I make. However, this time, I've decided to focus more on my photography skills to improve so this is the video I made to show you my travel diary!

That's right, Cadmium red now has a youtube channel!! You can subscribe here if you want!



Again, hope you'll enjoy the video!

Today is the first day of November, which means that it's time for another "Snapshots of the month" post!

To me, October was a month full of homeworks and exams but mostly happiness and inspiration!

A lot happened in October, I've been so busy because of school, I've been creating a lot and I've also been interviewed by Cara on her blog (here) and I wrote a post about the fear of failure while creating for the running molasses ( here )! You should check out their blog, they're really good!
