Inspiring artwork by Djamel Belghomari (01)

A few weeks ago I found some beautiful fluid artworks from the artist Djamel Belghomari (located in Asturias, Spain). Would like to highlight some of his artwork on my weblog. Today I am showing you this yellow with black and white artwork with large cells. Isn't it a beauty? I hereby enclose his You Tube movie, see below.
Djamel his style is colorful and expressive. He has a great knowledge of all kind of painting techniques. In this way he can easily create inspiring and versatile art. He likes to share his knowledge with his followers to help them find and improve their own unique painting style. I am a great admirer of his artwork. What I see in his work is passion for art, colors and beauty, lots of expression and creativity, a great feeling for coloruse and a great teacher. 
Djamel has his own You Tube channel where he is showing regularly all kind of fluid art techniques. He shows these techniques in an inviting and easy learning way. Four weeks ago I started to learn fluid art (acrylic pouring). The You Tube movies from Djamel are very helpful for me in learning and finding my own creative style (thank you Djamel for your help). Being busy in a creative way gives me so much fun and joy. I am really excited about my new hobby, there is so much to discover.  😊  Very curious what it will bring me in the coming months for adventure. Hope you like his artwork too. 
Thank you for reading this blogpost.
Note: this You Tube movie and photos have been placed with approval of the artist.
