Cockatoos

Cockatoos… They just came together for no apparent reason.

Flamingos

Yes, flamingos! Jenna Gee aka The Sunshine Artist suggested me to draw flamingos, so I decided to have fun with flamingos as you can see.

I have about 20 pages left in my sketchbook which I would like to fill with aerial themed illustrations.

Any other prompt suggestions? Leave it in the comments.

Exotic Location

Let´s move to an exotic location! There have to be pelicans of course! That´s what I am thinking right now, looking at the grey clouds outside.

Second last promt for #WorldWatercolourMonth. I have about 20 pages left in my sketchbook and I would like to fill them with more aerial illustrations all the way to the end.

Anyone wants to give me the next prompt? Leave it in the comments.

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.

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 – City Life

When I was in Germany last week I treated myself to a beautiful set of Schmincke watercolours. I´m already in love with them and after a week of not drawing, I feel super inspired.

Prompt of the day is city life. And yes, I also used to do the occasional pole pose whenever I would see a street sign or anything that resembled a pole. Have you tried it?

#WorldWatercolorMonth – Casting Shadows

Yes, this pose is possible. I based it on a photo. The black dots are flies… or bees? Maybe they are about to disturb her focus?

#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 – 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 – Simple Things

I was not quite sure what to do for todays prompt, so I settled for a simple pole pose – a cocoon.
