On my desk

Sharpies, sketchbook, paint and coffee!

Playing around with different subjects, 
I like to work on 1 subject, for instance rabbits, 
and then use different techniques to make multiple versions: 
you practice techniques and stimulate creativity 
and look at the subject in different ways.

Bring some flowers in your home

Field flowers for our home!
Here it is every type of weather: sun, cold, rain, wind and then sun,
so you have to treasure the sunny moments
and make your home feel cosy...

My own design on fabric and wallpaper

I have always been rather graphic in my drawings,
and printing fabric was always something of interest to me.
And now there is this company Motiflow which makes this possible.
So I uploaded several designs and had fun just sketching around for more ideas:

Everybody can buy my designs on their website,
which is great!

Portrait exercise

I had some paper left, and decided to draw the live model in small portraits.
The format of the paper brought these results:

First a blind contour drawing, and then making it more and more realistic or graphic.

Pink in the garden

Nature is bursting with flowers: our garden is filled with them, and is now mostly yellow and pink.
See these pink ones, soft and bright:

One week later... in the studio

I worked on the painting some more,
you need to take the time to focus and paint,
which was not so easy this week.

I am not sure whether I think it is finished, 
maybe I'll take out my crayons and give some more depth...
but I always need a little courage for this...
