Printmaking Again: Lithography

Of all printmaking techniques lithography is probably the “queen”. Printing on these heavy slabs of stone requires not only patience and knowledge of the printing procedure but also some physical strength. But once you prepared your drawing on the stone, you can print a series and enjoy this special form of art.

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.

 

 

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.
