Drawing the Summer

Whenever I travel, I take some drawing material with me. These drawings were inspired by the picturesque Greek island Chios which we travelled to last year…

I’m looking forward to sketching while travelling through Nepal this summer!

Sketches of Maritime Life

Although it won’t be Greece for holiday this summer I’m looking forward to warmer days and therefore did these coloured sketches of ocean life…

Rainy Day at the Lakeside

There is a beautiful little village at the “Traunsee”, called “Traunkirchen”, which I like to visit all year round.

Although it’s very nice there in summer, when you enjoy the cool breeze from the cold lake, only on a rainy day you will find this kind of mystical atmosphere…

Idyllic Austrian Village

We’ve got quite a lot of small and pretty villages here in Austria.

St.Wolfgang is probably one of the most popular ones with tourists because of its lake view and surrounding gentle hills and mountains.

At this time of the year it’s very quiet there as well…

 

World Heritage Region

Walking around the “Altausseer See” I took these pictures of the frozen lake and the surrounding forest. It was a sunny, even warm winter day and one could hear the sound of the melting ice of the lake.

I think you can easily see why this beautiful region is under protection…

 

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.
