Painting with your fingers

I’m still experimenting with the different drawing and painting Apps for mobile devices, such as ipad. There several intersesting ones, such as brushes app, or colorama, and combining them, you can get some really interesting results…. I show you an example:

Was die Apps fuer ipad betrifft, bin ich noch immer am experimentieren und vor allem, wenn man Apps wie brushes oder colorama kombiniert, kommen ganz interessante Sachen raus…..Hier ein Beispiel:

Artsy shirts…

Would you like to wear a painting ? An original? I started to paint some t-shirts last weekend, just to celebrate the arrival of spring –  and in the end the shirts were quite successful among my friends.  I used silk-paint for the first time and I was positively surprised when I saw what you can do with only the basic colour range! There are more to come, so If you are interested, just let me know and send me an e-mail
¿Quieres vestirte con un cuadro? ¿Con un original? He empezado de pintar algunas camisetas el fin de semana, en un principio para celebrar la primavera que al parecer finalmente viene por la sierra de Madrid – y al final las camisetas tuvieron bastante éxito entre mis amigos. Por primera vez utlicé pintura de seda, y me sorprendió bastante lo que se puede hacer con solamente los 3 colores básicos, así como blanco y negro! Voy a hacer más, así que si tienes interés, mandame un e-mail.
Hättest Du gerne ein Bild zum Anziehen? Ein Original? Ich fing am Wochenende an , T-shirts zu bemalen, eigentlich nur, um den Frühlingseinbruch hier in den Bergen bei Madrid zu feiern, und dann stellte sich heraus, dass die Shirts rege Begeisterung unter meinen Freunden fanden. Ich malte zum erstenMal mit Seidenmalfarben, und war positiv überrascht, wir gut die funktionieren und wieviel man mit nur 3 Grundfarben, schwarz und weiss erreichen kann! Ich habe vor, noch mehr zu machen, deshalb, wenn Du an einem persönlichen T-Shirt interessiert bist, scheibe mir eine kurze E-Mail

Fancy a peek in my sketchbook?

During the last weeks, I was travelling and got out of the habit of drawing, working and posting, but now I’m back! 🙂
In order to get back into the creative flow, I was working on my sketchbook, just doing scribbles, doodles, playing with colours and techniques… 
Drawing with wax-crayons and water colours is very simple, but a lot of fun!

 Have a wonderful week-end!


Spring is here!… and the swallows arrived!

Just in time for the start of springtime, the first swallows arrived here in Manzanares!
My couple of swallows took their house in the garage again and Mum and Dad swallow are busy restoring it and preparing their summer residence.
Each year, I ask myself, where they have stayed over the winter, what adventures they had on their long trip, if they are tired when they arrive and: What if they had flying nests?

Have a nice first spring week-end – and watch out for the swallows 🙂


New year, new ideas….any good intentions for 2013 you don’t want to forget?

Right for the  beginning of the new year, when all the new ideas and good intentions come up, I finished some books to hold all of your personal notes. They are meant to inspire and to give a positive feeling when using them.
The notebooks are A6, with blank pages, and each one holds two original and unique illustrations painted on canvas.

Here is the girl with a big heart up front, and her king on the back:

If you like animals you might like the one with the geese and their green shoes:

There are more to come, so visit every now and then!
I also do them on request, to, so if you are interested in a special feature, let me know!
