Get well

A week ago a dear collegue got sick and we were a bit worried. So after work I sat down and painted some flowers really quickly (2 hours). The next day I had my co-workers sign the picture (which was funny, because they all had trouble writing with the wacom tablet) and we sent an email with the digital flower bouquet to the poor sick one. I pointed out that the flowers did not need watering :-)

In January I was very happy because of the figure drawing sessions I visited. I tried out my new water color crayons from caran d'ache, using them like pencils first. I actually wanted to see what happens when I add water, but then the drawings were so satisfying to me, that I didn't want to ruin them. The crayons have a very soft feeling when drawing, which works really well with lines as well as shading.

Life Drawing Sessions

The journey goes on! Now I am living in Tyrol, Austria, with my wonderful husband. At the moment I am looking for work, but I also spend lots of time with my talented, creative friend Hanna: we participated in several life drawing classes and also went to the zoo. So look forward to upcoming posts!

figure drawing

In the last few weeks I actually managed to visit figure drawing in Würzburg. It's so relaxing to just concentrate on the drawing. I have to draw more *__*

Style Test

The last year too much was going on! There just wasn't any time to draw or paint anything useful for my blog. Today I decided to try a very simple style. I chose a random scene and a reduced color scheme.

cherry cherry summer

 My aunt celebrated her 60th birthday a couple of weeks ago. I had my mind put on drawing something "green" with watercolor, since green has always been her favorite color. And since I always had the feeling that I have problems with painting a nice looking green, I chose some cherries as reference. With some red in it, I felt more secure.
I got ready just in time, working a little in the night and early morning.

I went to a figure drawing evening class this week. It felt really good doing this after a long, long, way too long time. God, I missed it so much. I was excited the whole evening!
While drawing, my thougths were with my friends from animation school hamburg. What a great time we had there and all the things we've learned! I tried to recall everything Maksa and Leonid tought us. But now that Maksa and even Harald Siepermann have passed away way too young, there's always a sad undertone to the memory about the gorgeous time we all had there. Even if the time we shared with those people was quite short, they became our mentors, our idols, our friends and they helped us getting one step further towards our dreams. And therefore I am very grateful.

Oh lovely Grumpy Cat!

At the moment I am using a brown paper sketchbook with bare paperboard, which was staring at me blankly every day and saying "Put something nice here. Yes, right here.".
After I got obsessed with grumpy cat, it was crystal clear...

I love grumpy cat. She enlightens my day.

A dream is a wish your heart makes

A friend asked me to draw "Affenputtel" as a birthday present. Finally I had to force myself to do some private drawing again! :3

looks interesting without outlines
