Ice cream in winter

I wanted to take on a new project for January/ February and first thought about a portrait a day as I would like to improve my portrait drawing skills, something I haven´t done in years. But then I remembered something…

I don´t know for how long I have been thinking about doing a series dedicated to ice cream. I love ice cream and Iceland is a country somewhat addicted to it with ice cream shops open until late at night. You can find just as many people queuing for ice cream on a Friday night as during happy hour at the closest pub for another pint of beer.

So enjoy some ice cream during the weekend!

Last of 2017

So 2017 ended rather quietly with a bottle of wine and a plate of delicious Swiss cheese. Best of 2017 was that I finally got back into drawing after many years of not doing anything about it but always having it at the back of my head.

I thoroughly enjoyed the Inktober challenge and am super happy that one of my best friends pointed it out to me (Thank you Elise!). It certainly helped to create a positive habit of drawing regularly. Not every day, as there are plenty of other things I like to do, but about every other day.

Beside ink, which is my favourite at the moment, I am also trying to teach myself how to use water colours. I always had them but never actively used them.

Happy new year!
