Drawings of a Mystic Landscape

I tried to catch the mystic of the mountainous Salzkammergut region by using only black artist brushpens and a bit of ink…

 

 

Country of the Master Painters

 

Most Europeans travel to Amsterdam once or twice when they are young for obvious reasons.
I have never been to the capital of the Netherlands before, which I kind of regret.

The city is really  charming and a paradise for lovers of fine art.

Besides whole museums devoted to master painters like Rembrandt and Van Gogh, you will find a beautiful idyllic landscape with windmills and green pastures, which makes it easy to imagine how this country has been a source of inspiration for the most skillful artists ever.

New Close-ups

Since I got myself a Christmas present, a new macro lens for my camera, I couldn’t wait to try it out as soon as possible…

 

 

Ink Drawings with Artist Pens

These ink drawings were done with artist brush pens, using a set of landscape colours.

Landscape drawing can be tricky. How much detail do you need to draw to create an accurate picture of the place?

These small drawings show the idyllic Austrian “Salzkammergut” region.

Fall at the Lake

There is a small town situated at a dark and deep lake in the middle of Austria. If you visit this town called Hallstatt, you will find a most idyllic place, preserved and protected from the changes of time.

Try to visit it late in the day to avoid the tourist buses and walk the small path above the main lake esplanade, then you might still catch the mystic beauty of this place.

 

 

Looking Closely at Nature

Lately I’ve been somehow obsessed with nature drawings.

Leaves and flowers are slowly withering as fall is arriving, so I did some ink drawings of this natural process.

 

 

Eternal Art inside the Ice Cave

There is a giant ice cave located right in the middle of Austria, very close to the world- famous town Hallstatt.
The structures and sculptures nature has created here are simply amazing…
