Blumen für Schley's

Trotz der Absage des April-Events wird Schley's eine weitere Ladies Night in ihrem Megastore in Wattenscheid in Herbst veranstalten. Seit Februar arbeite ich an meinen bevorzugten botanischen Themen, insbesondere Bromelien und Bananenbäumen.

Journal Sketching Workshops in Kunstpark, Herne, NRW


Journal Sketching ist ein umfassenderes Konzept als das Urban Sketching, da es nicht alle letztgenannten Regeln einhält, jedoch dieselben Techniken verwendet und eine gute Möglichkeit ist, Erinnerungen zu bewahren, um sie in Zukunft zu genießen und sich der weltweiten Bewegung der Urban Sketchers anzuschließen. Anfänger bis Fortgeschrittene sind herzlich willkommen.

Skittzieren und Wartezimmer /Sketching and waiting rooms / Dibujar en salas de espera

My husband recently had two surgeries and I spent quite a lot of time in waiting rooms.  Sketching is a really good way to enjoy the time spent there.

Ink Sketches / Tusche Skitzzen / Dibujos con pincel y tinta


Winter is close and we can no longer sketch outdoors.  So we sketched each other and whatever we encountered at the old brewery in Herne, Germany.


 Since ladies come first, I dedicated myself to sketch them.  There was no time to sketch our male companions.  Next time...


Last night I realized how much I need this activity.  Not only do I enjoy sketching, but also need to be among friends and colleages once a while.  It was really nice. Thank you all!


Water sketches...




Sketching water bodies is a very special treat for me. I am probably missing the Caribbean sea. 

These boats were sketched at a little yacht club on the Baldeney sea, formed behind a Ruhr dam in Essen.








There is a lot of sports activity on the Ruhr river. 



This industrial installation is the "Wasserwerk" in Horst Essen. 










Steampunk at the Henrichenburg ship elevator's 120th anniversary

The entire structure and the abundance of visitors dressed in "steampunk" style costumes, made me feel as if the entire place was a Jules Verne movie stage.  The ship elevator is no longer working, a regular lock was built nearby.  I enjoyed myself  by sketching a few of the steampunk people.
