Here is the little jungle painting i did last week (swipe for a few process shots). would you want that as a print? i need new ones, because so much is sold out already. .
i needed a break from social media to concentrate more on my work. i'm doing lots of experiments at the moment. not without failures. while that's the purpose, i don't wanna share eveything. i hope you don't mind!😅
happy easter (for those who celebrate it)!

Thumbnailing and using my selfmade inks.
made with turmeric and safflower, red beet roots, avocado pits, black walnuts and indigo...still experimenting... 💪
also made ink from copper, charcoal and espresso and tried making some blue from black beans (but failed)
.
i might do a more into depth post with my selfmade inks once i have a bit more experience in making them. let me know in the comments if that would be something of interest for you and if you have other ideas recommendations for making ink. maybe someone has some tip to make ink from black beans? 😅

Still busy with packing prints. maybe i need to close my shop (link in bio) again for some time to have more time for painting and drawing again 😅
also i need time to do some new prints, because so many are sold.
one new interior illustrationt is already in progress, but because of all the orders and work it needed to wait a bit. but i'lll show you a bit more progress shots here soon. so stay tuned.

What happened to instagram? this post was shown without the text i had written ... so i had to repost it:
.
yes, i am still alive. 😅
it's only that so many guys of you bought so much from my shop since i re-opened it, that i just hadn't any time for drawing or painting inbetween. 😉
you made me so happy with all your support, and packing your orders and writing the little "thank you" notes is one of my favourite things to do ❤. i know many prints are already sold out, and some are almost sold, but there are still some in stock. and remember, almost all of my prints are limited and numbered fine art giclée prints. once they are sold, they won't be restocked.
these two van prints are still available.😃 ⬆link to my shop in my bio⬆

A #throwback for #internationalwomensday a while ago i painted nina simone in my style. it's still one my own favourite portraits. also a little reminder that my store will reopen this sunday at 6pm cet, where this illustration will be available as a limited fine art giclée print. but it can also be found in my book (links in bio). do you have any women you look up to?

Good news today: i will re-open my etsy shop next sunday (march 10th 18:00 pm cet). these small original cacti paintings on handmade watercolor paper will be available alongside other originals, new and old prints.
sorry that my shop is frequently closed for longer time periods, but it takes a lot of time to manage everything, and i've also other projects that need my whole attention. and it's very important for me to keep the packaging and everything else personal, to maintain a unique and high quality. i hope you understand this?

This is the spring illustration from my seasons collection i did for my kickstarter campaign. the season prints where only available during the campaign, but all 4 illustrations can also be seen in my artbook "cozy days", which you can still buy in stores (link in bio or other online bookstores).
however, i am really happy that spring is almost there! are you ready for spring, too?

Finished my kitchen, finally. 😅
i had a longer break before i finished it, because i was procrastinating and started making ink from things i have around.
the last step on my illustrations is always the most difficult for me, because doing details is the step i enjoy least of the whole process. i really love doing the composition, choosing colors and the painting process with watercolors itself, but doing details.... i know a lot of you love doing details more than the other steps, so please tell me reasons why and make it tasty for me, too 😅
hope you like the final result anyways.
