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.

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.
