Icelandic Farm Life

Another prompt from #WorldWatercolorMonth. I turned the farm life into an Icelandic farm life.

At the end of spring, farmers will bring their sheep up into the mountains, where they will roam wild and free during the summer months. In the beginning of September  farmers will go out and start gathering them again. This is called Réttir – the annual sheep round-up.

Furry Creatures

Revisited my furry creatures from the forest scene. I quite like them. I feel like they are the perfect mix of cute and creepy. What do you think?

At first I felt lost about what to do with the background. So a day later I added the yellow bubbles which was quite meditative.

Glorious Golds aka another Pelican!

Another prompt for #WorldWatercolorMonth was Glorious Golds.

I absolutely love how the pelican turned out! I think you can expect more of them in future. The girl was planing to catch the Golden Snitch while hanging in the hoop. Then she got distracted by the pelican, and fed him fish instead.

And why is there a hoop hanging over the water you might ask? Well, if you fall, you fall soft.

Wet & Dry – Pelicans!

Sun is shining! Wet & Dry prompt of the #WorldWatercolorMonth list.

I love pelicans. Saw plenty of them in Mexico and also in Guatemala where they were surfing the waves of the Pacific Ocean. It made me happy everytime I saw one.

Actually I wanted to draw pelicans for a while now but always postponed it. But here they are, watching the girl… or waiting for the fish?

In The Jungle

Still following the remainder of the #WorldWatercolorMonth prompt list.

Therefore in tune with my aerial theme – Pole fitness in the jungle.

#WorldWatercolorMonth – On the beach

I was busy sitting in the sun the last 2 evenings and it was good, today it is back to the usual rain. Therefore, before the sumerfeeling fades, the prompt for day 15 of #WorldWatercolorMonth – On the beach.

#WorldWatercolorMonth – Forest Animals

Went on an unplaned weekend trip to the country side with no internet connection. Only beer, horses and hot tub which was fabulous, so I am three days behind with drawings.

There was no forest, only  a lot of green fields and mountains all around. So this is my aerial acrobatics themed take on the prompt of day 12 – forest animals – for the #WorldWatercolorMonth

#WorldWatercolorMonth – Beautiful Blooms

#WorldWatercolorMonth – Light & Luminous

Slightly behind, but getting there. Light and luminous prompt of yesterday. Aerial move on a chandelier? Why not.

Edit: I was clearly too lazy yesterday to do a background for this. So when I saw it again today, I felt like I needed to do something immediately about those random yellow blobs. I like it a lot better now. What do you think?

#WorldWatercolorMonth – Climbing Mountains

Credit for the mountain goat goes to the boyfriend aka my “creative director” as he likes to call himself.

#WorldWatercolorMonth – Flying Things

Some fun for day 8. A superman pose on the pole. It is more difficult to get into this pose than it might seem. At least for me it was always a semi-struggle.

So here a flying pose with flying things, just for the fun of it. The little black spots are bumblebees… or flies…

#WorldWatercolorMonth – Playing Games

From the hoop, through the hoop. Or something like that. Actually might be fun to try it.

#WorldWatercolorMonth day 7.

#WorldWatercolorMonth – Shades of Blue

This is not what I wanted it to look like at all but I did not manage to get it from my head onto the paper. I don´t have time for a second attempt but I might try to redo it at a later point on watercolour paper to get a better flow.

The move is called the side amazon, in different shades of blue.

#WorldWatercolorMonth – Delicious Food

I like the look of cup cakes but I actually don’t like eating them. They always seem more promising than what they taste like most of the time. However as I think they are pretty, I thought they give this the perfect touch of colour. I imagine her throwing her leg back and flipping those cup cakes against a target on the wall.

I did pole fitness for about 4 years and it was so much fun, but my back never got this bendy.
