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.

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.

 

 

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.

 

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…

 

Ink Drawings

These drawings were done quickly with black drawing ink in a small sketchbook.
Often the sketches done without much effort are sometimes the ones which are most interesting…

 

 

Small City Drawings

Limerick, Cambridge and Prague – three beautiful cities I’ve been to.

I turned some of my favourite pictures of these cities into small ink and watercolour drawings on postcards.
