Evening bike ride

The long summer days are great for making evening bike rides.
At 9.30 pm I decided to go out and see the last rays of sunlight.
Long grasses, fields of wheat and some wind...

The last picture is just 50 m from our house,
these fields change each year, lovely!

Model drawings

In between other jobs I like making small figure drawings.
I take a magazine, and look for some interesting poses or characters:

Staring into the distance

I made a small painting,
this is a close-up:

The weather is very sunny and warm here which I have been enjoying.
In the studio I am experimenting with some different techniques,
a new card series with painted paper is in the making,
I am finishing some abstract paintings and in between I am drawing.
On my wishlist: visiting several museums this summer.

Sketching outside

Yesterday we had the opportunity to sketch outside,
in a garden with these large enormous trees.
A good exercise!

I often draw people,
and find it a challenge to do this in different techniques,
so I took a white sheet of paper,
and started at random drawing faces,
making them together into a people-composition.

I used Indian ink and several brushes, and permanent markers.
I think I will sell these ones in my Etsy-shop.

Spring colour design

I worked in my studio today and just felt like using some bright spring colours.
I handpainted these designs and will use them for some of my products, happy me... :)

This is Lunaria Annua which grows in our garden,
two different colours.
