Little Cthulhu

I know, Cthulhu is
big and monstrous and scary...
But i like painting him as
small and cute!
My little Cthulhu is made with
ink, watercolours and watercolour pencils. 
What do you think???




Dreamy Daffodil


Most people would paint
a Daffodil from the front side.
I chose the back side.
This is something we 
do not see very often. 
So, i though: 'why not?
Let's paint a Daffodil 
fasing the night sky!
Who knows what the flower is dreaming of?'
My Daffodil is made with 
watercolours and watercolour pencols.
What do you think?


Inky love



This little squid was 
so much fun to paint! 
I think it was the point of 
no return for me. 
I really loved using the ink in this way
and i kept doing that. 
The ink works perfectly 
with the watercolours. 
I use Winsor and Newton inkk 
which is waterproof and 
then i can paint all over it!
So, what do you think???

Moon Cry


So, i wanted to try that yellow paper 
people use with white chalk or ink. 
I am not able to do what artist are doing 
with this paper... 
But i did the best i could. 
I hope it is good! 
My wolf is made with ink (black and white). 
What do you think?


Guilty rabbit


My little sister called this one 
'the farty' 
It was a tempting name :-P 
But the rabbit was supposed 
to look guilty... 
My little rabbit is made with 
ink and watercolour pencils. 
What do you think???




Ice cream love


I really love ice cream! 
It is one of my favorite desserts! 
So I thought about painting it :-P 
I used ink and watercolour pencils. 
The background is made with 
transparent watercolours. 
What do you think???



Full moon view



This is another one picture 
made just with ink. 
I really like using the ink! 
What do you think???

The Swan


This is my first picture i made 
completely just with ink.
My boyfriend got the inks for me 
so i thought I should give it a try. 
What do you think???


Little mouse


This is a picture i am really proud of!
I never had any training in arts, so
most of the complicated pictures
are really difficult for me.
I tend to prefer simple pictures. 
This one was a little bit challenging for me. 
But i did it! 
My little mouse is made with 
ink and watercolour pencils. 
What do you think???




Checkadee II


This bird is my second attempt
to paint a Chickadee in ink.
I do not like it as much as the first one... 
But it is not so bad... 
What do you think???

Checkadee



This little bird was
my first attempt to use ink.
I really like it but
it has a smudge on its belly. 
It is coloured with watercolours. 
So, what do you think???

'Wolpertinger'




A wolpertinger (also called wolperdinger or woiperdinger) 
is a mythological hybrid animalthat is said to inhabit 
the alpine forests of Bavaria in Germany. 
They are often characterised as being mischievous.
It has a body comprising various animal parts —
 generally wings, antlers, tails and fangs, 
all attached to the body of a small mammal. 
The most widespread description 
portrays the Wolpertinger as having 
the head of a rabbit, the body of a squirrel, 
the antlers of a deer, and the wings 
and occasionally the legs of a pheasant.
Well, my Wolpertinger does not
look exactly like that,
but it is quite close.
My boyfriend, which is a German,
recognised it immediately! 
So I am ok with my version of it! 
My Wolpertinger is made with 
ink and watercolours on 
watercolour paper. 
What do you think???

'Forget me not'

I really love this painting! 
This painting is made on 
a Hahnemühle watercolour postcard. 
The flowers are painted with watercolour pencils, 
the 'Albrecht Dürer' line by Faber-Castell.
Those are some really amazing tools to use! 
I really love the fact that 
now i have access to those tools!
So, what do you think of my 'Forget me not'?






'The Crane'

This painting was more of a experiment.
The Crane was sketched with ink.
Then i made everything wet
and i left the ink to create the shadows. 
I painted it afterwards.
This was an interesting technique, 
but it takes the right tools. 
So this is not for me right now... 
But it was fun painting this picture! 
So, what do you think???


'Goldfishes'



I always wanted a Goldfish... 
Looks like now i have two!!! :-P 
My Goldfishes are painted 
on Hahnemühle 250gr aquarelle paper
with Lukas watercolours. 
I also used some metalic watercolours 
but i am not very happy with them. 
What do you think???
