I’m trying to work more loose even abstract. And I try to get each day a little painting done, however this one took me almost three days.

Back from vacation and ready to go :)

Okay, perhaps you wondered where I’ve been lately, no need to worry everything was fine, I have just been on vacation. Now that I’m back at home and at work I’ll be able to share with you some new little pieces.

This piece here for instance was created last week. I’ve seen some of those Faber-Castell Marà Sets around for sale and felt inspired by her art style, so I tried to create something in her mood. What do you think?

For those ones who are interested in her painting style: first you draw with a pencil some curved lines on your paper, then you go on coloring them using water color pencils (well, I used water color), then you continue with stamping, adding cut out paper ornaments or whatever you feel like it would suit your piece of art. It’s more some sort of serendipity creation and it’s very relaxing.

Chiaroscuro terrier – or a pet that peeves

A pet peeve of mine are pets that peeve, especially those life models that would not stand still for only a second to let me capture at least one decent photo of them – not to talk about trying to sketch them! Just like this little gal here. I tried to photograph her several times, but all the shots got blurry.

One year of blogging…

A doll

Just another sketch to warm up a little bit. This time a doll. It’s a mixed media, mainly pen & ink, watercolor and fluid acrylics. Not sure yet whether I like this kind of mixed media or not.

I haven’t painted with watercolors in a while, so today I just made this small illustration. The photo is a little blurry, sorry for that. It’s watercolor, chinese white and gel pen.

Where Am I?
