Inktober 2019 Day 10 – Pattern

I actually caught up with my ink drawings but my camera is on strike… so just one fashionable fox at the moment inspired by Brian´s travellers series on Equinoxio. Don´t ask me how I ended up with this fox…!?

Merci.

Inktober 2019 Day 5 – Build

I loved Tetris when I was young. Would play it hours on end until I would see little moving cubes behind my closed eyelids.

Inktober 2019 Day 1 – Ring

I really was looking forward to Inktober this year, after I had so much fun last year! Check it out here.

I got my ink and sketchbook already ready a week ago. After a quiet month of not drawing a lot I was looking forward to get into it again. And I really missed using ink. Of course I already managed to get ink all over my hands. Wouldn´t be inktober without that! So let´s have fun with this!

I’m going to follow the official Inktober prompt list again. Maybe in combination with a little fox. Lets see what happens.

Cat Yoga II

Another drawing from Greece, back in May.

One of the cats at the pole studio in Athens enjoys lying under people while they are doing the plank. What better motivation than to hold the plank just a little bit longer? Cat-cercise…? Is that a thing?

World Watercolor Month Wrap-Up

Finished later than planned but eventually did it. My 31 prompts for World Watercolour Month of 2019. In addition to following the prompt list I also tried to incorporate a traveller theme.

I had a lot of fun with this one. I feel that I got a lot faster at sketching, and proportions and people come easier to me now after a month (and a half) of almost consistent daily drawing. I will definitely keep going. Time to look for another challenge… Any suggestions?

Which one is your favourite?

I think mine are the pooping monkeys (#22) and me relaxing in the hammock (#16).

Day 29 – Glorious Green #WorldWatercolorMonth

Took me while what green to focus on. So I took a forest / jungle walk. Tranquillity and colours of the forest. Just loving it!

Do you like to get lost in a forest?

Day 25 – Shades of Pink #WorldWatercolorMonth

Day 25 of #WorldWatercolorMonth – Shades of Pink. I am behind because we are having a long weekend here in Iceland and I am actually camping! This only happens once a year. I do not like to be out in the cold…

Ever entered a hotel and where like WTF or OMG when did they last renovate this place? This pink setting is not the worst I can imagine though. With a pink cocktail it might actually be quite pleasant. Somehow I have Welcome to the Hotel California stuck in my head.

Day 23 – Beach Fun #WorldWatercolorMonth

I was watching a Mexican family build a beautiful big sand shark when I was on holiday in Tulum/ Mexico last year. I took several photos of it as it was so cool. That was the inspiration for prompt of day 23 – beach fun. What´s the best thing you build on a beach?

The Jack Russel Terrier in the corner is in memory of the dog we had when I grew up. She loved to dig holes in the sand. The bigger the better.

Day 22 – Rainforest #WorldWatercolorMonth

Prompt 22 – rain forests – for #WorldWatercolorMonth2019

Inspired by my visit in Tikal, Guatemala, a few years ago. First time for me in the jungle. We went on a sunrise morning tour around to Mayan ruins. I was still sleepy and had no idea what the guide wanted from me when he almost yelled at us to stay clear of the trees. A few moments after we saw and heard the poop droppings coming down like bombs. The monkeys clearly enjoyed their morning shit.

Day 21 – Patterns #WorldWatercolorMonth

I am pretty sure everyone has seen these kind of tourists at some point? Or are you even one of them?? The guy reminds me of Ron Swanson from Parks and Recreations. It´s definitely the moustache!

Happy lazy Sunday afternoon everyone! At least that´s what I am having.

Day 20 – Buildings #WorldWatercolorMonth

Love those sauna boat houses in Scandinavia. If that is not a good way to spend a holiday, then I don´t know.

Day 19 – Splashes of Color #WorldWatercolorMonth

I was reminded of the beautiful street art of Mexico city when I thought of splashes of colour.

This is my own street art mock up. Tried to incorporate my traveller theme as well in the drawing.

Day 17 – Music #WorldWatercolorMonth

I do like street musicians, if they are good.

The weather has been quite good the last couple of days so I am a bit behind. If the sun is out here, you should go out. As I keep saying, you never know when it starts snowing again.
