Colour story of the week 2



My neighbors’ stairs, on a rainy February day like today.

Wintertime can be wet and grey in the UK. Most things loose its colour on a rainy day, but not my neighbors’ stairs! When it rains they turn a rich colour maroon with bright red speckles. I love these different shades of reds next to the nearly golden looking stone. So rich, so Autumn Winter, love it. I will keep this in mind for the time I am in need of rich colour inspiration when designing a new collection.

I love taking photos both with my phone and my small point and shoot camera when I am out and about. My favorite snaps to take are random photos of groups of colour and texture that catches my eye. These images later feed into my work, both paintings and print design. Through my journal I will show you how. I will post a picture every week to connect the dots. Show you in a simple visual way the way I work from research to finished print or painting. Change is in the air. This spring my journal transform.

Change of season. Winter’s here.

Maria Hatling Christmas Open studio BLOG

The season is changing from Autumn to Winter. Winter here in London is different from winter home in Norway. The snow does not stay on the ground if it has a guest appearance.

The colours and the smells of the English winter can easily be described as grey and wet but that’s only until you take a closer look. Below some photos I took this week when out and about and some Maria Hatling wool scarves to keep you warm.

Summer Favourites

Posted on September 1st, 2015

The amazing Sonia Delaunay.

Taking a brake from my ongoing website work I decided to visit the Sonia Delaunay The Eye exhibition on at the Tate Modern last week. This was an amazing opportunity to view and discover the full body of work of one of my absolute favourite print design heroes and female artists, the true queen of prints.

Being home with a my toddler that soon to be will no longer need to nap during the day can sometimes feel like the day is very long and the evening when I work very short. This particular afternoon my boy decided to have a nap and I took an audio guide tour through the exhibition and was lost in time and art history for 45 minutes.

I used to love art history when I was at school but growing up in a small town in Norway there was really not many exhibitions for me to see. Being home with boy before he start school we try to catch as many exhibitions as we can.

From my sons’ point of view this means that he knows his way around child friendly places like the Tate Modern and the Barbican and has already been to more exhibitions at two and a half than I had when I reached my teens.

Personally I think this is one of the main perks of growing up in a city like London.

The fantastic Sonia Delaunay exhibition is on at the Tate Modern until 9th of August. Catch it whilst you can you will not be disappointed especially if you take the audio guide and her the music and rhythms and learn about the different cultures that influenced Sonia’s radical approach to used of colour both in painting and in garments.

As a print designer and artist this exhibition made me feel like I need to go home and paint more and that’s a good thing.

Iris Apfel

Ever since I discovered the book ‘Rear Bird of Fashion’ about Iris Apfel’s personal style about 8 years ago she’s been my number one style icon. At the moment I am trying my hand at illustration and has decided to start off with drawing women I really admire. First up Iris Apfel. Can’t wait to catch Albert Maysles film I R I S about the great woman herself.  Out in the UK in July.
