Flying in the air by holding a balloon

How fantastic would it be if we could fly, high up in the sky? By holding a beautiful balloon ? It would be BRILLIANT!

Unfortunately my camera couldn't get the colours right. I left the bottom empty on purpose because otherwise you wouldn't know where to look ;)

Oh and please listen to this song while looking at this painting ( you can skip the first 18 seconds if you want to )


It's from Pixar's AMAZING Ratatouille and really inspired me for this work.

Waiting for my laundry ( in a bath with a big red ribbon )

You'll probably have to look twice before you get this one.

If you still don't see it...

It's a girl lying in her bath ( the brown thingy on the left is her hair! )

p.s.: yes I would LOVE a bath with a big red ribbon on it. Anything is so much more lovely with a red ribbon around it!

Rhythmic Gymnastics Girls

I love the Olympics! I'm always amazed by how fresh and healthy athletes look so because of Beijing this drawing.
( I'm actually quite proud of the legs!! ). More to come.

Definitely watch this full-sized because otherwise you'll miss the details!

My light-blue giraffe won't listen (not similar at all!)

My light-blue giraffe won't listen!
But still, who doesn't want to own a blue giraffe ?
Entry for Illustration Friday, because they aren't similar at all... Or ARE they similar? It's your choice...

Sailing in the night

This painting looks much better viewed digitally because it's pretty awful in real life. That's why I edited it digitally and well, it's acceptable now but it's definitely not my favourite!

Carousel in winter (Paris)

Another "Paris-painting". I have always loved these old-fashioned carousels, and I decided to make a colourful one out of this.

Oh by the way, the yellow one in the front will be mine. You're free to sit on the one you like the most!

(Please click on the painting so you can watch it full-sized. The white on the bottom may look too white but that's because of the photograph! Sorry for that )

Girl in Paris (selling flowers )

Today I finished this drawing of a girl in old-fashioned Paris, she's selling flowers. I got my inspiration from a book with a lot of incredible old pictures of Paris. I did change some things to make it my own and I'm defenitely going to do more of these Paris-works!

Please watch full-sized (click!) to see details

Sad willow in the cold blue ( or: Sad Sparkling Willow in Vacantness )

I just painted this willow. I am going to add something else to it but it has to be something really good, and I haven't got anything in mind yet! So that's why it's only a lonely willow, but I like him :) Just as he is standing there.
This is also my entry for Illustration Friday's "vacant".

And a colour variation I did digitally

This is the final drawing. I'm going to leave it like this, just simple. Added a few "dots"

Arrogant dog out for a walk

I'm still working on the background, but it's hard! ( Maybe I'm just going to draw a simple, light-coloured Eiffel-tower, something recognizable ). But I have to admit that I'm proud of the fence, the dog and the trees! Oh, and I like the colours. Hope you like it too! Let me know.

Anyway I called this drawing "Arrogant dog out for a walk". I think you'll understand!

( Made the drawing a little darker, digitally. Because I couldn't get it right with my camera )
