Throwback to an oldie because winter finally arrived in munich.❄☕⛄
this is probably one of the most copied paintings of mine and slightly changed variations of it (together with my fluffy robin) and i am wondering why 😅
for me it's completely okay if you repaint my illustrations for practice or just for fun, but please give credit in the description if you post it online, and of course don't sell it as your own illustrations. this happens soo often. 😥 sometimes i've seen it with descriptions like "inspired by an austrian village", which is quite absurd as it's from my brain only. be honest to yourself and your audience! that's important. .

I made some new watercolors today for an upcoming giveaway.😊
this here is light yellow ochre. ➡️swipe for more➡️
did you ever used selfmade watercolors? in my opinion, they have so much more character then the industrial ones. (of course it also depends on the pigments you choose.)
you can find a tutorial in my art book (link in my bio) where i show an easy way to make them.
i love this warm yellow so much that i wanted to share it with you!
what would you paint with it? .
What a coincidence! the first snow has fallen while i finished this picture.❄ ➡swipe➡
i made this one with my self-made watercolors. it's not that difficult and has a lot of advantages. maybe you wanna try it for yourself? in my art book you can find a step-by-step tutorial (link in my bio). it's so peaceful when snow is falling! do you also have snowy winters where you live? did it already snow? if not, i hope you enjoy the picture anyways.❄⛄
