Sketching for Bootcamp

This month the theme for the MATS Bootcamp is all nautical. A theme which fits me so well. So out came my sketchbook and started filling pages with whales, orca’s (or something that looks like it), shells and boats and ships related things.

Funny bird tutorial

You can always count on Carla Sonheim to come up with fun and simple ideas to make something fun and simple!

This bird was made after watching Carla’s video. My bird turned out to be more detailed. Adding a bit of gesso and coloured pencil to make it work.
Do you want to play as well? Just watch this video here:

Have fun!

ColourBookStudio Colourtheme for winter.

Despite a soft start of the year, the weather in the Netherlands is getting colder each day. Nature has lost lots of colour, but if you look good, you can find some pops of colour anyway. I love the pinks in this image. Some are pale, some are warm but all of them are inspiring.
