A friend of mine is a textile designer and I love to print.
So it was just a matter of time to start printing on fabric. This is going to be our first collaborative piece of work, a beach mat.
We will also take part in this craft fair in April which I´m really looking forward to.
I tried to catch the mystic of the mountainous Salzkammergut region by using only black artist brushpens and a bit of ink…
Most Europeans travel to Amsterdam once or twice when they are young for obvious reasons.
I have never been to the capital of the Netherlands before, which I kind of regret.
The city is really charming and a paradise for lovers of fine art.
Besides whole museums devoted to master painters like Rembrandt and Van Gogh, you will find a beautiful idyllic landscape with windmills and green pastures, which makes it easy to imagine how this country has been a source of inspiration for the most skillful artists ever.
Since I got myself a Christmas present, a new macro lens for my camera, I couldn’t wait to try it out as soon as possible…
These ink drawings were done with artist brush pens, using a set of landscape colours.
Landscape drawing can be tricky. How much detail do you need to draw to create an accurate picture of the place?
These small drawings show the idyllic Austrian “Salzkammergut” region.
There is a small town situated at a dark and deep lake in the middle of Austria. If you visit this town called Hallstatt, you will find a most idyllic place, preserved and protected from the changes of time.
Try to visit it late in the day to avoid the tourist buses and walk the small path above the main lake esplanade, then you might still catch the mystic beauty of this place.
Nature is always such a rich source of inspiration, especially in fall…
Lately I’ve been somehow obsessed with nature drawings.
Leaves and flowers are slowly withering as fall is arriving, so I did some ink drawings of this natural process.
