Day 5 – Loose& Free #WorldWatercolorMonth

Don´t ask me how I got the idea for this prompt – loose and free…

And no, I don´t go running naked.

Breaking a Sweat

First time attempt at a self-portrait. It shows my attempt at a selfie at the gym after getting my first smart phone upon arrival in Athens. Yes, I am one of those old fashioned people. Was at least…

My selfie game is definitely weak (How is yours?) and pretty much non existent as I feel stupid taking them. Enjoyed the work out though.

My time in Greece is slowly coming to an end, and I am not sure how I feel about it. But first another weekend on another Greek island for me, starting tomorrow. The city is way too hot already at 36 degrees Celsius! Have a great weekend everyone!

Magic Forest

From the park with flowers in bloom to the magic forest. I actually love how this one turned out. The paper was not great but I like the idea and I think I will re-do it on better paper at some point.

Hanging Out in Athens III

I am finally getting better at this One Leg Hox hang as it is called. But it still hurts quite a lot and also leaves nice bruises on the back of your knee.

But at least I am able to do it now more easily. Pratice makes perfect. Although I certainly don´t feel as light as a balloon floating in the air.

Happy Holidays

Not really in a Christmas mood this year. But I am somehow going along with all those Christmas enthusiasts around me. I have been skipping the decorations though and I am merely focusing on eating as much as I can. Cheese and red wine especially. I already had my fair share of cookies and other sugary items.

But I also make sure to leave enough time for shoulder exercises, so that I can go back to aerial hoop in January! So far the plan.

Merry Christmas everyone!

Hanging on

I have been suffering from shoulder pain the last 2 weeks and consequently have been in a bad mood. I am no good at being injured and staying still… especially not now during the long dark winter days.

So instead of exercising I will try to limit it to drawing myself on the hoop and drinking red wine.

Hanging in the Air Upside-Down

Somewhat of a self-portrait of me doing this shoulder stand pose. Tried this pose for the first time a few weeks back. I was in bad shape that day and being up side down made me feel like I was hanging right above an abyss.

Sometimes it takes only as much as 20cm in height difference for me to be afraid of heights all of a sudden.

Inktober Leftover – Stretch III

Another yoga session. This one for all the cat lovers amongst you. I think you can figure out my take on cats and yoga?

Inktober Leftover – Stretch II

Anyone feels like doing more yoga?

Another one that I started for the Inktober prompt Stretch, but then felt like I had messed up the inking. So I left it until I was bored the other day and I finished it. I don´t think it is that terrible after all.

Now I´m thinking if I should add colourful yoga mats to the other drawings too? What do you think?
