Drypoint Printing

I haven’t been able to do intaglio printing since I left university because I didn’t have a printing press at home. Well, those days are over now!

I got myself a very small printing press which works quite well, at least for small size prints. So these are my first attempts at intaglio printing using acrylic glass as printing plates and washable printing colour. I find this technique so intriguing…

 

A Quiet Time of the Year

The most quiet time of the year has finally arrived…

I wish you all a peaceful time and a good start into the new year!

Frozen Beauty

I have been strolling through town today with my camera and took these pictures of the frozen beauty. Even the colour palette looks cold…

Mystical Late Autumn Landscape

I haven’t been blogging for ages. The reason is that I took on a new job. Besides teaching languages, I’m also teaching art at a secondary school, which means a lot of fun and creative ideas but also some challenge since I’m quite new to teaching this subject.

Before I went to school yesterday I took these pictures of the nearby `Hallstättersee´, a place well known for its famous town Hallstatt and surrounding high mountains.

At this time of the year it’s not very busy there but the place still conveys its mystical, wild beauty.

Wonderful Greece

This summer we have been travelling wonderful Greece. Life is so much slower and easier there, especially on the small Greek islands.

For art lovers this is the perfect place. Everywhere you find the remains of classic antiquity next to byzantine churches as well as modern day street art like in Athens.

Mountains in Summer

Crossing the so called “Hohe Tauern”, a high mountain range here in Austria, I took these pictures. It’s amazing how quickly the weather changes in the mountains.

Lush Nature

Although it has been raining a bit all day I went out and took some shots of the lush
vegetation after this refreshing summer rain.
