Paper, Ink and Pen

  Every October, artists all over the world take on the Inktober drawing challenge by doing one ink drawing a day the entire month. Inktober has been created by artist Jake Parker in 2009 because he wanted to improve his inking skills and develop positive drawing habits.   I haven’t done ink drawings in a longContinue reading “Paper, Ink and Pen”

A Floating Tree

  Due to some minor health issues in August I haven´t done much blogging or painting – some of you might have noticed. 😉 But thankfully I´m on my way back and even did  a little water colour painting inspired by a book that I have borrowed from the library at the beginning of thisContinue reading “A Floating Tree”

A Prickly Handful

    After having painted the pineapple that is more than a bit prickly to me 😉 , my thoughts went to one of the cutest animals, that also happens to be a bit prickly: the long-eared hedgehog.

Isidor´s Eagle

    Having lately noticed that eagles are the national birds of many countries (including my own with its Golden Eagle), I thought it was time to give it a try and paint one. In this post however, I want to draw attention to a maybe less known species of eagles, the Isidor´s Eagle, alsoContinue reading “Isidor´s Eagle”

A Surprising Encounter

    Over 3.5 million people and a few thousand foxes live in Berlin, and supposedly the latter can be seen just about everywhere but so far I only ever saw one single fox. It was a couple of years back when I was on my way back home after a late course at uni.Continue reading “A Surprising Encounter”
