Yorkshire Cottage

It's time for this month's WetCanvas challenge. Photo by Yorky.
Same old story - I'm making new houses out of old ones,... But I promise one day I'll be able to surprise myself and paint a proper cottage!

Have a lovely Sunday.

New painting blog

My painting friend Matej just started his own painting blog. Please welcome him in the Blogger community, by visiting his blog. He is a great "classmate" of me, always providing detailed comments and constructive critique to my little watercolors and recently we also started a monthly painting challenge together.

Enjoy the blogging, Matej!

City of canals

My painting friend Matej and I decided to embark on our own monthly painting challenge, based on the same reference photo.

This one portrays the city of Venice, which beauty never fails to impress me.
The perspective in my painting is unique ;), but I'm content with the glazing on the right buildings...
You can find Matej's painting here.

Have a wonderful day!

My favourite season

On Sunday I went hiking on the Parenzana, which was the railway connecting Trieste and Poreč (in present day Italy, Slovenia and Croatia), operating till 1935. It is now transformed into a cycle and hiking route, named The route of health and friendship.
A sketch after a photo from my walking in the green.

Thank you for your encouragement! :))
Happy weekend!

Finally a touch of blue color on my blog pages. Hard to believe it is my favorite colour.
Just a little sketch to wet the brushes...
