Another free hand exercise, this time with color pencils and watercolors.
Mandala made with ink and colour pencils.
An imaginary flower (or a funky sea star…) made with ink and colour pencils.
I wanted to add some colour to my usual black and white drawings, so I bought new ink colour pens, and a mandala seemed good enough to test them.
More coming soon!
After the daily work sampling a section… nothing better than a “shower” with cold, muddy water. Although far from the comfortable bathroom at home, I miss it :)
Photo taken in East Greenland in summer 2012.
Lovely loft, full of light, on a tree. Ideal for couples. Preferably birds. Amazing views to the garden and human life.
Today is Saint George, a special day in the region I was born (Catalunya, in Spain). In short, the legend tells Saint Gorge defeated a dragon to save a princess (quite cheese actually), and from the blood of the dragon a bush of roses grew. Saint Gorge gave to the lady one of those roses, and in return she gave him a book.
We celebrate it as the lover’s day, traditionally women received a rose, and men received a book. An exchange sign of their mutual love. However, nowadays everybody receives a book, at least one, and women still receive a rose, although not always the flower. Can be whatever creative item with a rose on it, for example a foulard with rose motives.
It is been already few years I skip this day (unfortunately)… Streets are full of people with books and roses, meeting friends and family, and the day is usually enough springy and long to fully enjoy it.
To honor this beautiful day I draw the homeland of Le Petit Prince, remembering Saint-Exupéry’s book, with the rose and a happy dragon. Actually I like more the dragon than Saint George and the princess, but that’s another story.
I wish you all a good day, and to those who celebrate Saint George, feliç Sant Jordi!
Lately I had to spend a lot of time in an airport because my flight was first delayed, then cancelled and finally rescheduled. To fill my time with something better than having a walk around the duty free shops I drew a corner of the Eden garden (according to me).
