Rose

This is another watercolor picture for Nicky. Roses are hard to draw; you do your best not to paint a chocolate box decoration and still make them look good as they deserve. Usually it doesn’t go too well. I’m not completely satisfied but this is a small step forward, when comparing with my previous rose picture.

Flowers for Nicky

Watercolor flowers for my friend Nicole.

Something sunny

New Year, new pictures to draw. This one is for little Mathilda. I have promised her something sunny.

From My Garden

Watercolor just for myself. It would be a pity to ignore the summer in the garden!

Sultan Daughter

This legend is about a Christian knight who was rescued from the slavery by his true love; they stayed together forever, never mind the knight’s wife waiting in the castle… and they got blessing from the pope. Sounds like a scenario for early Hollywood movie, doesn’t it? I can hardly belive this story comes from Middle Ages.

Ickendorf

Each next legend in Astrid’s set is more crazy then the previous one, I think. This one is about an underwater town, to be seen just once a year and for a short while.

Carrot Story

Another German legend illustrated for Astrid, and this one is quite funny…

Super Fast Santa

The last picture made for “Yule Spy” by Roger Easton: Super Fast Santa waving goodbye. Hopefully he returns in December and no epidemy is going to stop him.

German Legends

Another legend from Thuringia, for Astrid. The boy got quite rich due to this encounter!
