The dailies have worked well: I am now painting regularly, every day. Time to change the rules: whenever I am working on a bigger painting or project - no dailies, when working on them would clash with the other work. While traveling or in-between projects or when I...
Starting the physalia project. Preliminary sketch.
some more sea snails
sketch experiment for an upcoming project after having seen lots of small portuguese man o'war washed up on an Australian beach, some hazy ideas for a project were born Physaliidae are fascinating creatures or actually colonies of specialized...

some more Australian bits
patterns of the ocean II
inspired by Rosebud (Australia)
Continuation of pattern no.4
Yesterday's daily (no internet access yesterday) I've worked on these kangaroos before, but I believe they belong in the book of patterns.
unfortunately so far I was not able to figure out this beauty's name
patterns of the ocean
Ocean, could be anywhere, the recurrent rhythm of the waves
Patterns as dailies. Starting a book of patterns, inspired by nature and culture.
The final one: Edinburgh Castle
Painting just finished and goes into an exhibition tomorrow, therefore another detail as daily
Today I have to cheat, the exhibition "Fokus Harz" this weekend is looming and the painting has to be finished, so for today there is a bit of background colourwork done. Not finished yet, lots of work left for tomorrow...

This set of dailies is going to be a piece for an exhibition with the title "Focus Harz". The Harz Mountains... there is no ocean, no beach, no shells, no funny fishes, so what's my connection? Motorbiking, my Bonnie and I.
No new creatures today, back to the motorbike tales...
