I wonder what breed he is as I’m not so familiar with dogs 🙂

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.

I have been sketching and painting like mad this week. Not only naked people as you can see above. This drawing is a 15 minutes pose by the way, and it has been drawn with white and black charcoal on canson paper. No, your monitor doesn’t play any tricks on you, the paper really has this strange texture, yet it looks lovelier in reality than on the screen.
Throughout this week I learned quite a few things.
First, that I actually enjoy drawing people. (I used to hate drawing people, but hey, after 25+ sketches like the one above you start loving what you do. It gets more and more easy with every sketch, believe me!)
Second, that I can draw a decent sketch of almost every person in almost every position from life(!) in less than 20 minutes. That’s a big improvement!
Last, that charcoal loves ingres and canson paper! Really! I always disliked these kinds of papers, because of their rough structure that would always come through in each and every colored pencil drawing, but it’s a completely different thing with charcoal! It just glides so smoothly over the surface of those two kinds of papers… it’s unbelievable :)!

… and keeps me busy. I thought that I could easily sketch something food on the fly, too, but I’m feeling horribly exhausted after 7 hours of sketching and painting.
So I’ll bore you with some of my nudes instead this week. How about that? 😉

…days only to ruin the effort of twelve days, but that’s just what happened. I’ve skipped two days on July’s NaBloPoMo because I went on a spontaneous trip to Cologne with some of my friends. *sigh*. At least I completed twelve little paintings/sketches in twelve days which is already pretty much for me and I had a very pleasant journey as well, so I do not have a valid reason to complain and hence can only sing along with Edith Piaf :”Non, je ne regrette rien..”
The painting above is another watercolor and it’s about postcard-size. I don’t like eating fish, but strangely enough I like painting fish. Luckily my friends didn’t mind me painting their lunch, though they looked a wee bit confused at first.
