Small is Beautiful

Having bought a macro lens for my camera, I wanted to try it out as soon as possible.

This winter holiday we’re not going anywhere so we have just been walking around taking pictures of the beautiful nature surrounding as here in Austria.

Nature’s beauty can be seen in every little detail…

 

Small Sketches

I love drawing, painting and collages so I did these small sketches recently using some pages of old books and other collage material.

Even if you can’t always see the original material any longer, I feel that the sketches have a different quality than paintings on simple white paper.

Just a Quick Note…

I used some leftovers from an old linoleum plate to cut out this pencil motif.

Then I printed the pencil in different colours and used them to redecorate my blog (look at the sidebar).

Of course you could also print some nice sticky notes with it…

Printing Again…

What else is there to do on a free weekend than working on some prints?

I wanted to turn some of my quick pencil sketches into colourful linocut prints and voila…

I think they turned out pretty nice.

What I want to do next is to use these motifs and print them in larger formats…
