A #throwback for #internationalwomensday a while ago i painted nina simone in my style. it's still one my own favourite portraits. also a little reminder that my store will reopen this sunday at 6pm cet, where this illustration will be available as a limited fine art giclée print. but it can also be found in my book (links in bio). do you have any women you look up to?

Good news today: i will re-open my etsy shop next sunday (march 10th 18:00 pm cet). these small original cacti paintings on handmade watercolor paper will be available alongside other originals, new and old prints.
sorry that my shop is frequently closed for longer time periods, but it takes a lot of time to manage everything, and i've also other projects that need my whole attention. and it's very important for me to keep the packaging and everything else personal, to maintain a unique and high quality. i hope you understand this?

This is the spring illustration from my seasons collection i did for my kickstarter campaign. the season prints where only available during the campaign, but all 4 illustrations can also be seen in my artbook "cozy days", which you can still buy in stores (link in bio or other online bookstores).
however, i am really happy that spring is almost there! are you ready for spring, too?

Finished my kitchen, finally. πŸ˜…
i had a longer break before i finished it, because i was procrastinating and started making ink from things i have around.
the last step on my illustrations is always the most difficult for me, because doing details is the step i enjoy least of the whole process. i really love doing the composition, choosing colors and the painting process with watercolors itself, but doing details.... i know a lot of you love doing details more than the other steps, so please tell me reasons why and make it tasty for me, too πŸ˜…
hope you like the final result anyways.

I started to try to make ink of things i have around. tumeric powder and black tea came out too light but i had great success with espresso beans. i love coffee and so i cant wait to paint with it 😍 the next color i want to make is red. i will try beet, purple cabbage, different berries... any other recommendations?
also other tips for other colors are very welcome πŸ’›πŸ’™πŸ’œπŸ’šβ€
i hope you dont mind that i share also these making experiments in between my art. i love painting and drawing but sometimes i need a break and do someting completely different like paint- or inkmaking.πŸ’•

This illustration, which i did 2016, captures pretty much my mood today (in the best way it could be). i love escaping into storys or books. i started the day by watching a documentary about jack london, and then another one about john steinbeck, and afterwards i continued reading j. d. salinger's "the catcher in the rye" (for the first time) which i love so far.
what are you reading at the moment? or what is your favourite book or author? please let me know. there is no better subject to talk or read about ❀

Brick houses.experimented with gouache and colored pencils in my dry media sketchbook again.
still not completely happy with the result, but it seems that wax based pencils look much better on gouache than oil based pencils.
but i struggle with the shininess of the pencils over the extremely matt gouache paint. also, the gouache doesn't take pencils everywhere, and sometimes the gouache cracks under the pencil.
do you have experience with this technique and maybe some helpful tips? maybe i should use some more absorbent paper? or using texture spray before drawing with pencil on gouache? or maybe using different pencils or gouache?
i am thankful for everything. πŸ˜…
