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.
It has been a long time since I last did some paintings using watercolours. But I got some high quality paints and brushes for Christmas so I decided to give it another try. The results are quite interesting, although they don´t have this very light quality of a typical watercolour painting. With these works I was more interested in layering different watercolours.
Thinking back there were some things I really liked about the year 2013. In summer I travelled through Europe and saw many beautiful places I haven’t been before. I was really inspired when I came back and started to do some printmaking and painting again, something I really enjoyed at school. In October a good friend of mine and I visited the Biennale in Venice, which was really great that year.
So what are my plans for the New Year? Doing more of what I like, which is printing, painting, drawing and taking pictures of all the beautiful things around me…
