#Colourinspiration: Recently I found this withered, leftover corn on a hike. The husks showed unusual mauve & limejuice colour spots. That colour combination triggered a memory of a much loved checkered dress I had as a little girl (I went through old slides to find a proof of that memory ... 🙃)⠀

Because I'm invited to a #diademuertos celebration, I prepared a little picture for the #ofrenda.

Swipe the slideshow, if you'd like to see my #workprocess - from first idea sketch (VERY rough) to finished piece. This time I worked differently. I skipped the light layout drawing, that I usually prepare for an illustration. I just drew each object one after another where it fitted best. Drawing this way is a bit risky, as you never know the outcome ... Side note for #gardenlovers: The traditional #cempasuchil flower is from my balconygarden and grown from mexican seeds. They thrive and just started to bloom on time!

1 of 2 #balconygarden in october: the last two weeks I've been observing the changing colours and last blooms for my #botanicalsketchbook. ⠀
Side note for #gardenlovers: the sage variety Salvia greggii ‘Royal Bumble’ has the most beautiful little vermilion blooms - and the leaves smell like peach & pineapple 🌺🍑🍍👌

What shape would you choose if you had the chance to design your own bespoke wooden vase?

Here are my #brainstormdoodles to find my favorite shape for a dry flower vase. I quickly stuck with a #minimalistdesign, simple, round & smooth shapes. Because I couldn't decide on one design only I gifted myself two tailor-made vases from Wuppertal carpenter Jörg Windgasse. He turned my sketches perfectly into my desired objects ♡ Swipe to see the process and result 🏺✨

Yesterday at the turkish grocer's I saw this enticing #colorcombo of mixed plums in a large wooden box. I just needed to capture those #autumncolours (although short of time ...)
And I made some first hyperlapse tests. That was absolutely great fun! But also quite distracting from focussed drawing 🙃

This year our mini apple tree in a pot grew six apples 😊For the first time and against all odds (too much rain, aphids, hail & storm, ...). I left the last two for weeks on the tree for an occasion when I had time to document them. Today I took my drawing stuff outside. Very refreshing for a change to sketch #pleinair. Windy, cloudy, sunny and some raindrops ... One of the challenges of #drawingfromnature and #pleinairdrawing is the quickly changing light situations. To get a little impression, swipe the pictures that I took at the drawing session, and observe the shadows on the apples & leaves. I tend to ignore the proper shadow rendering in my sketches and like to interpret them rather freely 😉

First signs of fall in Copenhagen: little chestnut find for my #travelsketchbook.⠀

This time I testet a new sketchbook, the #moleskineartplus sketch album. The paper is very smooth, thick enough and pretty good for colored pencils drawings while travelling. The ivory color of the pages softens the bright hues of the pencils. It gives the illustrations a bit of an old-fashioned, yellowed-paper touch. It's nice, if you like that (I do 😉)⠀

★ Welcome ★ to my l o t s of new followers who found me via @designsponge. I'm overwhelmed ! (And that's an understatement ...☺️)
Many thanks to my new and old loyal followers for your interest in my posts! 💐 😊✨ Today I continue with red #cottagegardenflowers: #snapdragon from my #balconygarden for my latest #botanicalsketch. They are so nice to look at, lush and playful, but quite a challenge for drawing ...⠀

Glimpse into one of my recent fun commissioned projects, a page of my Cologne mini-colouring book.⠀
It's going to be released next month by #emonsverlag 😊

#Büdchen is one of the 20 words and sights in the little book. It's a typical Cologne kiosk or corner store.⠀
