Newsletters with Discount Codes

Four fresh, colourful and charming newsletters are the fruits of the month of September. Use my newsletters to gain insight in my art, to make lovely cut-outs for your notebooks or to see whether you like to buy a few note cards with discount coupon codes.

My first newsletter narrates the story behind my (many) Koi fish drawings and paintings. It shows why I have never stopped drawing lotus ponds with big, colourful koi carp. This newsletter is free and offers you a discount coupon code for my beautiful Koi Carp note cards that I sell at Etsy.

Tulip Newsletter

My second newsletter explains my Four Tulips Composition and shows various tulip artwork. Lush tulips in all colours and compositions are to be admired in this colourful newsletter. There is a discount coupon code to be used whilst checking out your Four Tulip Composition note card and Etsy.

Albino Mandarin Duck Newsletter with Coupon Code

In this full coloured newsletter, Paula tells the story about mother duck calling her ducklings to make the jump. There are images of Paula’s artwork and work in progress. There is a discount coupon code too.

Pumpkin Newsletter

My Pumpkin newsletter tells the story about how I cam to drawing big, orange and beautiful pumpkins. Once you have studied all the details of an object and you see these objects again, it feels like meeting an old friend. I can draw or paint the thick, scarred skin of a pumpkin because I studied the uneven and surprising patterns on pumpkins so well. Enjoy the newsletter and use the discount coupon code for your beautiful Pumpkin note card at Etsy.

Paula Kuitenbrouwer on Inspiration

For me inspiration is related to a deep longing to beauty. My art is not political, it is not related to society or country. It is not revolutionary, innovative or economical. I want it to be beautiful and in accordance with my values. I dislike art that goes against everything I stand for. I step away from shocking, degrading, ugly, women and animal unfriendly art. Art does not die, artists do. The question therefore is what do you like to leave behind long after your studio has closed.

Floral Triptych (Bloemen Drieluik)

Drieluik Triptychion

What better than receiving a request to draw a floral triptych of lush spring flowers during the Corona lockdown? After the monochromatic under layer, working on these large Arches sheets (41- 61 cm), adding many layers of colour, felt like wandering through a lush garden.

The contrary was true. We were home most of the time, our city turning into a ghost town with museums and botanical gardens keeping their doors locked. Going to the supermarket and making a daily walk through greener parts of our area was all we did. I bought new green plants and planted some extra flowers on our balcony. But my real garden was on my drawing station and it was full irises, tulips, and daffodils. Before giving the sheets a protective spray, I added bugs and bees.

Packing up an commission always makes me nervous. But it worked by using an XL artist tube and three protective folios. By the time I brought the artist tube to the post office, our lockdown was almost over. Only our botanical gardens keep their gates closed till the 1st of July. Although I long to visit them, I understand that they can do very well without us, humans. They might even have had a jolly good time!
