  Film Fridays is a project initiated by Darren from over at The Arty Plantsman and me. After doing a daily music challenge for a month last year we talked about doing something similar for movies.

Two Years of Blogging and a bit of Dalí

  I can´t really believe it myself, but yesterday was my second blog anniversary! I knew it was due sometime this summer but didn´t really kept an eye on the exact date and was thus taken by surprise when WordPress congratulated me. Consequently I didn´t prepare anything fancy in advance – shame on me, really.Continue reading “Two Years of Blogging and a bit of Dalí”

Contemplation

In everything I do, especially art, I can not help but letting my feelings and emotions be part of what I do… So, if I´m happy, the things I draw, paint or form of clay, are likely to represent this feeling in some form or other. The same goes for when I´m angry or anxious.Continue reading “Contemplation”

In order to do so, I borrowedContinue reading “A Chinese Character”

A Bashful Beauty

  I sketched this portrait with Audrey Hepburn in mind, an amazing actress I´ve always admired very much, not only for her stunning and elf-like beauty but for her tremendous skills as a dancer and actress. I freely admit that this drawing does not really look like her…I will have to practice more to getContinue reading “A Bashful Beauty”

A Papuan Portrait

  I´m back on track with my project about learning how to draw faces. After having practiced drawing the individual features like eyes, noses, ears and mouths seperately, the next step is to combine those features now! For this I use a couple of books from which to draw different faces. The drawing above showsContinue reading “A Papuan Portrait”

Those Eyes!

Once again I was touched by one of my dear friend Syeda´s beautiful poems! It made me want to draw those eyes she was so passionately writing about … and I hope I did her justice.         Those deep beautiful eyes, They say so many lies, So many truths they hide, OceansContinue reading “Those Eyes!”
