Drawings of a Mystic Landscape

I tried to catch the mystic of the mountainous Salzkammergut region by using only black artist brushpens and a bit of ink…

 

 

Mountains in Spring

On this warm spring day I went on the first hiking tour of the season.

The region we went to is of immense natural beauty with its deep blue lakes and  snow-capped mountains.

It also has a tradition of salt-mining from which it derived its name “Salzkammergut”.

Small Pencil Drawings

It’s been quite a while since I last found the time to do some creative work because I’ve been teaching a lot of courses recently.

Nevertheless, here are some small drawings of little everyday objects and plants.

I made them using graphite and colour pencils.

I like to use a kneaded eraser to remove parts of the drawing before going over the part with colour pencils again.

New Painting

Currently I’m working on a new acrylic painting. It should be ready for Christmas since it’s going to be a present for my sister’s new apartment.

She loves bright colours…

Quick Nature Sketches

These sketches were inspired by a natural landscape but they are close to abstraction, which I like somehow.naturesketches4naturesketches3naturesketches2naturesketches1
