I selected some of my nature shots to apply some changes in photoshop here and there.
What I like is to play around with slight changes in colour, light or background.
I also like to combine two pictures which are somehow related, like the picture of the lake and the foliage.
The plants on my terrace are blooming so I took some pictures and edited them a bit.
I have developed quite an interest in photography recently so I decided to invest in a good photo editing programme. These are the first tries…
Last week I bought some wooden panels and did my first woodcuts.
If you choose a soft wood like limetree, cutting into wood doesn’t require much more strength than cutting into a lino plate.
You can also use linocut colours for printing.
Here are the first results:
Now that’s what I call a lot of snow. Exactly one month after Christmas winter has finally arrived here in Austria…
I rediscovered pastel drawing pencils and did these small pictures with them.
They should also serve as inspiration sketches for a series of woodcuts I want to do.
Let’s see how that’s going to work out…
It has been snowing recently, not much though, but a bit at least.
Walking along a small creek I took these pictures of some minor details of the wintery landscape…
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…
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.
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…
