It was meant to be tea-break drawing but finally it took a bit longer. Ink and crayons on a piece of yellow paper I have found under the desk: I have feeling this paper is for pastels. One side wasn’t too dusty.
This is a small watercolor picture – about postcard size – for a friend. It’s meant to decorate her parent’s bathroom.
One of these silly drawings made without even one minute of planning. They just come. On lucky days they look good. Gouache and crayons.
Next picture for Alexander. This is plain traditional watercolor, no strange additions this time.
Not far from the place where I live there is a little town named Pilica. In Pilica there’s a castle, rebuilt into romantic palace in 19th century, and there’s a long alley leading from the gates of palace park out into the fields. Palace, garden and fields used to belong to one family before the war; they were ugly exploiters of working people and red revolution wiped them out. The palace stayed in place, and the alley too. One of my friends asked me to paint this alley in four seasons of the year, and he brought me very good reference photos… so, here is spring alley for Alexander.
Four books about Snowman Paul’s adventures are printed now. This was a BUSY month! And when books are printed, Snowman Paul is going to take part in Moonbeam competition which starts soon… I belive he won’t be shy, in the second book he became the winner of Olympics Games.
This is one of most popular scenes ever, I think. There are thousands of Alices on DeviantArt or Pinterest, and half of them are portrayed with the caterpillar and the mushroom… Well, in a hot afternoon I have made one more Alice and one more mushroom. There are several inks here – umbra, sienna, magenta – and several pencils from Derwent and Koh-i-Noor.
This is my entry for new DeviantsGallery challenge: DRAGONS! I belive very small ones could have survived till today.
I’ve got an e-book lately about J.W. Smith and her illustrations, and this drawing is definitely fan art! No exact copy, but there are many elements borrowed. In original picture there’s a boy playing with blocks at home and watching woods outside. Interesting thing is that letters on his wooden blocks say: LAS and DOM (“woods” and “home” in Polish). Did the famous American illustrator know? Or is it a coincidence? I was truly surprised to find familiar words from my own exotic language there.
