Looking Closely at Nature

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.

 

 

Eternal Art inside the Ice Cave

There is a giant ice cave located right in the middle of Austria, very close to the world- famous town Hallstatt.
The structures and sculptures nature has created here are simply amazing…

The Inspiring Process of Collaging

For the last three days I took part in a collage workshop.

We were asked to do collages about our future hopes and dreams, using a variety of materials such as pieces of old magazines, handmade paper, chalks, charcoal, acrylics or ink.

I found the process of creating the collages extremely inspiring and also much fun.

 

 

Some New Prints…

I haven’t done any printmaking for a while but now I want to start again with linocuts and woodcuts.  I would like to do more of these…

 

Nepali Sketches

Whenever I travel somewhere, I take a small sketchbook with me. These sketches where done while travelling through Nepal, some of them on typical Nepali handmade paper.

Sometimes all it needs is a quick sketch of a remarkable scene, which you can later turn into a larger painting.

 

Lost Horizon Country

Nepal is a country of extremes. Snow-capped mountain ranges, tropical jungles, lush vegetation during monsoon season, colourful prayer flags flying in the wind – impressions even the experienced traveller will never forget…

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!
