Feeling as tired as she looks in my drawing πŸ˜„. Took the easter weekend off and had to catch up with some stuff before I was able to post again.

Couldn't help myself and started a tiny thing. Curious about this new masking tape! 😍

My studio really needs tidying up πŸ˜₯. Going to get a curtain rod after 3 years (the room is facing south - had to get it done before the summer!) And I have to figure out if I can fit more plants in there 😐.

And another one. These metall pigment colours by #finetec make me want to try silverleaf... πŸ™„.

There are days when nothing makes sense and you feel like the worst...why are you even trying to be an illustrator!? AND then there are days when everything makes sense and falls into place πŸ˜…. Would be nice though if it would even out a bit ... but hei. That's learning new things and trying to be better than you were a day/week /month/year ago. Don't give up. Everybody gets there in their own time!! (Btw that's the awesome pastel brush I use now for the #graphite #powder! 😍)

Loving the #graphite powder by #cretacolor. I even gound the perfect brushes for it by accident 😍. Not used in the video though πŸ˜…. Going to finish this guy this week...atleast the #blackandwhite part πŸ˜‰.

Experiments over experiments. Be a dandelion and let the ideas spread arround so that they will take hold in the smallest crack and grow into beautiful flowers.

Washes above washes, because this paper is unforgiving if you made a mistake. 
Watercolour (#gansaitambi #kuretake) on a #giclΓ©e print, 26,5x46,5 cm or 10.2"x18.1"

Getting somewhere. Reall enjoy those #gansai #tambi watercolours by #kuretake. They are really heavy on the pigment so I have to use even more water to dilute these than I am used to. I am working on a fine art #giclΓ©e print. The paper need some getting used to too. It is not watercolour paper but it can handle everything so far.

Some picture from my luscious spring garden with lots of forget-me-nots for @irenelaschi πŸ˜ŠπŸŒ±πŸ’ . As well as some pennywort and some budding flowers like the granny's bonnet. The rest is not blossoming yet but I am very excited for the foxgloves, wolfsbane, ramsons, water avens and the spotted dead-nettle (just to name a few πŸ˜… I had three years to plant all kinds of things...). My big bees are nearly finished with their nests and the next round are the small ones in the summer. But when the flowers show up the bumblebees, bees and butterflies arrive! Best time to enjoy the garden!
