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…

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.

Pastel Pictures

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…

 

Small Pastel Sketches

I did these small sketches with soft pastel drawing pencils using my macro photographs as a source of inspiration.

I guess they will also look nice as a series of small-scale prints…

 

Coloured Drawings of Nature

Here are some quick drawings for which I used some of my favourite travel pictures as inspiration.

Doing a sketch of a beautiful place sometimes feels like visiting the place again…

 

 

 

Small Sketches

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.
