This one was planned only with a squirrel, but then I thought: Can´t leave out Mr. Fox! So he´s here too, again. Friends have to stick together, right?!
I made a new background for the fox I painted some weeks (or months?) ago. The background itself is made on Photoshop, the berries are pencil drawings, the fox itself is watercolor and gouache. I like the sketchy feel of the berries and that they are not too perfect, but I must also admit that I´m too impatient for perfection… Mr. Fox in this version is available for purchase at Society6, Redbubble, and Artflakes.
Yesterday I bought a birthday card for my husband a saw a lot of really pretty cards on the shelves. That´s how I got the idea for this new design. It´s an older watercolor painting of mine combined with a little digital background, scanned pencil writing, and graph paper. The words are of a beautiful old poem by Josef von Eichendorff (1788-1857). It says that there is a song hidden in everything, and you can hear it if you just know how to really listen.
The new design is available as print here.
I´m done with these two little friends flying to the moon. 😊 I really like this one. And I found out something new – at least new for me: If I decide spontaneously what colors to take, I usually mess up the color harmony. In this one here the colors look okay, because I planned them, visualized them, and didn’t take too many of them. Actually it´s just two colors, red and blue, and variations of them. I think I should stick to this approach…
This watercolor will soon be available as print and printed products on Society6 and Redbubble.
There´s some new stuff in my online shops all around the world – haha, sounds like I´m a real global player 😁 Actually I´m sitting just at home in my living room, painting. I gave up my Frankfurt Studio a little while ago because we´re about to move again. Don´t know when exactly, but I hope it will be soon. I´m quite impatient…
Here´s the new stuff in my Redbubble Shop, which is available in Europe:
