Love how these 4 turned out. I am using the opportunity to have fun with different styles and mediums. Used a mix of sienna ink, watercolour and coloured pencils for these.
In the Water
As previously written, I love water. I started cold-water dipping a couple of years ago and absolutely love doing, especially in nature. But also every swimming pool in Iceland will have a cold water pot next to the hot tubs. That makes it even more enjoyable jumping from hot to cold and back.
Here is another watercolour practice from a year ago. Watercolour on hot press paper.
Another watercolour practice on cold press paper. I do love swimming and being underwater is amazing. Unfortunately I never met a rock n roll starfish before.
Take Your Pet to School Day I
This was my first attempt at a full scene in watercolour and ink, where I put the characters of the previous posts into action.
I am very happy how it turned out. Any comments and criticisms are welcome 🙂
Did you ever take your pet to school?
Swim with me
Another page of my Capybara and Friends – Colouring book , now in full colour. Here is the original.
Have a great weekend everyone!
I need at least one. Either black (like my soul) or with loads of milk, Latte like. Everyone has their preferences. How do you like yours?
Art vs Artist
I made a last one of these Art vs Artists collages. Also more for me as I enjoyed taking a look at my work from last year.
Below are my first proper attempts of watercolour illustrations. I still feel like I have a long way to go. But practice makes you maybe not perfect, but better bit by bit.
Just like life, a lot is going on below and above sea level.
This is another seen from my latest Capybaras and Friends Colouring Book.
Art vs. Artist
There was this art vs artist posts on Instagram and I am late to the party but this was the image I put together.
It has been a though year with many downs put I have certainly learned a lot illustration wise. I still feel like I have a long way to go until I get to where I want my illustrations to be, but hey, it’s a journey.
Curious to see how my style and skills will further develop throughout the year.
What are you looking forward to?
Capybaras are Excellent Swimmers
Capybaras have webbed feet and it makes them excellent swimmers.
They can dive and hold their breath for five minutes at a time, and their ears fold back when they are underwater so they never have to worry about water getting stuck in their ears.
This diving capybara is also part of my latest Capybaras & Friends Colouring Book.
Inktober Day 12 – Stuck
Maybe it’s time for a diet?
Will he be successful or not?
What are you having for dinner tonight?
Inktober Day 5 – Blade
It took me a while to figure this one out. And I am not sure where the idea came from in the end. Maybe my need for sun and the beach?
Mr Fox went snorkelling today to look for a precious sea shell.
Inktober 2020 Day 1 – Fish
Woop! Here I was waiting all September for Inktober to start and then the month started without me noticing!
I haven´t touched my ink and pen since January. I totally forgot how much fun it is and it was surprisingly easy to get back into it. Certainly easier than the previous years. I´m going to follow the official prompt list again and maybe something else… Let´s see what happens.
Just follow the light…
I am Hungry
When you are thinking about your next dinner….
My favourite fish is salmon. What is yours?
Pelicans and their Fish
Pelicans can eat 4 pounds of fish per day.
They will take large amount of water together with the fish they catch. But before swallowing the fish, they move their heads forward to remove excess water.
Flying into the Weekend
Off to the countryside to barbecue some fish. We not gonna catch it ourselves, that is too much work. But the eating part, we certainly can do.
Colourwise this pelican is one of my favourites so far. What do you think?
Happy weekend everyone!
