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…

The Inspiring Process of Collaging

For the last three days I took part in a collage workshop.

We were asked to do collages about our future hopes and dreams, using a variety of materials such as pieces of old magazines, handmade paper, chalks, charcoal, acrylics or ink.

I found the process of creating the collages extremely inspiring and also much fun.

 

 

Some New Prints…

I haven’t done any printmaking for a while but now I want to start again with linocuts and woodcuts.  I would like to do more of these…

 

Nepali Sketches

Whenever I travel somewhere, I take a small sketchbook with me. These sketches where done while travelling through Nepal, some of them on typical Nepali handmade paper.

Sometimes all it needs is a quick sketch of a remarkable scene, which you can later turn into a larger painting.
