This is not necessarily my work desk, but our ‘blue table’ which is synonym meanwhile for the table with all kinds of stuff on it. I like to sit on this table and add to my journal and my boys’ smash books – especially while they’re sitting at that table too. It’s our favorite spot in the afternoons, when they’re home from school and need some time to read or draw or play their games. My older son also folds his origami here too. I also like to ‘display’ my work in progress here because I can look at it frequently and think about how to finish it. On rare occasions we eat at this table 😉
If you’re wondering why I post all this, just hop on over to Julia’s blog!
Anyway – here are some pictures:
That’s what it looked like last weekend.
An index card – will be mail art and also linked to icad2013.
acrylics, doodles, handwriting, pressed flower ‘Buschwindröschen’ in German
(will have to look it up in English…)
another snail – I told you (here) that we have lots of them! 😉
watercolor pencil on the wrong kind of watercolor paper – too rough!
I can’t wait to be in Germany to buy supplies at more affordable prices. I try to do my sketches on what I have on hand before I stock up on paper and paint (I’m in desperate need of watercolor paper and also watercolor paint. But since we’re really close now to our vacation, I think can handle it…)
Another bird sketch – watercolor on watercolor paper.
Dohle (German) or Jackdaw (English)
Yes, we see them daily. I love their light blue eyes!
Because I like them – here’s another painting of a Dohle/Jackdaw
This time I tried adding details with a 005 Zig pen. I like the idea but I think I overdid it a little on the wing (it’s hard to see in this scan…)
Oh – yes: I finally got a lino cutter (my old one is still in the U.S. and it took me a while to find one here). I think my friend Theresa might like this one 🙂
…stamped on an index card (yes, also counts towards my icad stash :))
Unfortunately the brown ink is the only ink pad I own right now. Same ting here – I will hopefully stock up in Germany with some more cheerful colors.
Thank you all for visiting!!! Have a great mid-week. It’s ‘Nationaldagen’ in Sweden tomorrow – it’s a Holiday so we’ll be away for the weekend (to explore yet another part of beautiful Sweden :))
I will catch up on woyww once we’re back.
