Life has a way to get inbetween things. Maybe when I handled everything that is going on right now I will post about it a bit but right now it is just too many what ifs... getting sick didn't help. Some drawing just for the sake of it was badly needed today. I like drawing noses 😊
First part of another big drawing. After I am getting more and more used to my new method of digital colouring I am a bit more enthusiastic about my graphite drawings again.

And who are you behind yours?

Since I am sick  this is an older sketch...did it together with the 'merchant of masks' and a bunch of others to approach the subject that we all are wearing different masks (or hats) at some point and what may lay behind them.

Now that I am satisfied with my new method of mixing colours I am going to work on some of those sketches and WIPs of the last couple of months! Back to the purple creepy witch! Finished the black and white version and going to colour this one next. Haha - my life leaves me feeling like an overworked octopus since I am working on so many things at the same time 🐙 😅.

Not a sketch this time but the final colour version of "Beautiful decay". (WARNING: super long post over my art development of the last 12 months)

The ones who follow me for a while now know that since last year I delved into experimenting. After a workshop last summer in Vienna I was okay woth the fact that nore static compositions extensively rendered in graphite and thus black and white are my thing. I just love the process. I love the medium. I love sitting there and by putting layers of grey dust on some pressed plant fibers create the illusion of something 3 dimensional. BUT I was also aware of the fact that purely working in black an white is very restricting and not what I want to do for every illustration. I think in colour. I also love working in colour. When I had the time that was colour pencil. But not only is the result not always as delicate as graphite but it also takes forever. For my scientific work I colour digitally 90% of the time. But the process I developed there just doesnt work with the mood of my personal pieces. Sooo... back to failing it was. I failed in the best possible ways over the course of the last 12 months. I failed with oil paint, different kind of water colours, pastels and all kinds of mixed media approaches. Used different kinds of papers. Applied colour to giclee prints and failed. That way I could cross of every single technique as "That's not you." Until... back to digital it was. The thing I started off with and first thought that it would never work for me. Guess what. It kinda does after learning about everything else. I use a totally different approach than for my scientific work though 😅🤓 I hope I will keep on loving that process!!

It's summer but I can't go swimming...that may as well be a good thing....since you never know what hides under the surface.

The all-seer. Her eyes see everything at the same time. In contrast to an augur an all-seer sees everything that has happen, everything that is happening and all that could happen at the same time. She can't and never will decide what the future can bring. Otherwise she will be in trouble with other beings like the norns. .

Sketch. Which mask are you wearing today? Who knows you without aby of them? How many masks have you collected over time? She can give you all of them...though the price for some is a high one.

"Artemis of the wildland" - sketch.
Sometimes my drawings are big. Too big for the tabel or the the easel. Then I get to work on the studio floor 😊. Returning to the big pieces I prepped so long ago.
-
This piece is partly inspired by the idea of the personification of nature, stories about mother earth as much as my strong believe that our emotions and personalities are like inner landscapes and gardens. It matters if you nurture or abandon it, if there is a parasite eating away at you (as in bad influences and people draining energy from you). Just as much as landscapes and garden differ - so do our inner gardens and landscapes. Just as much as a garden grows old or a landscape gets changed - so do the hidden ones inside of us.
