Street perspective in Tokyo in ballpoint pen and watercolor

This one i just did from google streetview – It’s really fun to explore the world with streetview – I were looking for a “historical city center” of Tokyo.. Older houses or older city structures, but couldn’t find it. Does anybody know anything? I did this one in my A4 sketchbook, so it’s bigger than … Read more

410 Portrait of Ted Cruz in watercolors

This is Ted Cruz – a newly announced candidate for the US 2016 elections – he’s republican and apparently “tea party” republican. He likely eats innocent kittens for breakfast and gives his grandchildren pink automatic rifles for Christmas. (sorry if i offend somebody on regards to their “freedom”). Anyway – I just wanted to paint … Read more

408 Drawing of Chub-Chub, the cat, in ballpoint pen and watercolors

This cat’s called Chub-Chub! After drawing the horse and rider yesterday, Tom, who’s the photographer behind these pictures revealed to me that he’s got a cat-blog also.

This is the drawing to “break in” the new book. I think the street color steals away a little too much focus, and the perspective … Read more

402 Drawing of Tibetan Gazelle with ballpoint pen and watercolor

Here’s a drawing that I just did. A Tibetan Gazelle grazing. I wanted to try my new waterproof ballpoint pen with the watercolors – it turns out that it really is waterproof. It’s a little hard to control for the finer details though. I think it went a little too wild on this one, and … Read more

398 Drawing of a crow with ballpoint pen and watercolors based on a photo by TPJPhoto.net

I’ve been looking for crow photos these last three days. What a strange and beautiful bird! Finally I found a good photo on a blog called TPJPhoto.net The drawing turned out good, but the colors are off. While crows are black, they have beautiful nuances of blue in the sunlight. My drawing looks more like … Read more

396 Portrait of Angela Merkel, the chancellor of Germany. Drawing in watercolor and ballpoint pen

Merkel’s time has come – to get her portrait drawn that is. I doubt she needs introducing, but just for the homogeneity of these blogposts, let me just say that Angela Merkel is the chancellor of Germany I wasn’t completely true to the proportions, but i think it looks like her. The hair is a … Read more
