my background picture


By the way, did you ever view my background image? It's a photograph of Chiwa, my mothers Dane that died in 2007.
On normal screens you usually don't see the dog, only the beautiful August meadow...

teeth themed artfolio pieces, part 1


they didn't take my application, but I like some of the stuff in this teeth themed portfolio.

These depict the life phases based on teeth. In German particularly the false teeth are called 'third teeth' or just 'thirds' („die Dritten"). So these are named 'First Teeth, Second Teeth, Third Teeth'.

They were done on ivory coloured sketch paper with lead pencil and neon yellow (highlighter) coloured pencil. For online display I edited the colours, because usually highlighter colours lose all their brilliance when scanned. No need to explain that here, hm?

collection petals, a job to my taste


Today I visited my mother. Now in October there's a lot to do in the garden. For example collecting roots, fruits, leaves and ... petals? befor the first frost.
Petals are great for salads and other foods, but they are scarcely available in winter. So you can collect and dry them.

Today I collected
Bellis perennis
Calendula officinalis
Dahlia
Lithospermum purpureocaeruleum (what a name!)
Phlox
Tropaeolum majus
Viola tricolor

candle

I just found this thing from September. I tried to draw a candle from memory.
I think I succeeded with the wax and the overall colour but failed to draw the flame. Which I only noticed after comparing my drawing with photographs. I mostly draw without reference and many things do not look credible... I need to study more. More. More.
