I bought a little solar panel recently. It lies in my windowsill, with open window, sucking up the sun's rays. At night it recharges my phone, which works very well. It came with lots of different plugs to charge different phones and even my Nintendo DS. I like that I can use the sun to charge things. It also has a separate attachment so it can charge batteries. I haven't tried that out yet. I made this drawing while my hand hurt badly and cramped up a lot. Not the smartest thing I ever did.

I went out to the mall (yes, we have one!) for some groceries and somewhat needed purchases and failed horrible in the last category. They did not have what I wanted. Crossing the large parking-lot to the stores I realised I forgot to bring my hat (or cap). My scalp burns easily -- which hurts -- so on sunny days like today I wear protection. I hopped into the nearest clothing store and found exactly one hat. A simply grey-ish bucket hat. I now have a full quartet of bucket hats. It posed nicely for my drawing.
I didn't know what to draw, so I drew my right shoe. A very comfortable kid's shoe which leaves tiger-footprints in the sand. I have small feet.
I’ve tried out some new foods recently, some for eating and some for drawing. The kohlrabi roasts in the oven as I type this and the aubergine — I just can’t call it eggplant! — lies waiting for an idea to pop into my head. The aubergine doesn’t look like the kind I know, the […]
Today didn’t go too great, and at some point I decided to make a little drawing. I drew the little (handy) scissors I bought recently. While I took the photo I noticed the other drawings in the moleskine and realised I hadn’t put a bunch of the others drawings online yet. I made them all […]
A few days ago Michael Nobbs released his two booklet (Start to draw your life and 75 ways to draw more, previously released as make-it-yourself-booklets) as a combined updated and free eBook. Naturally I downloaded it. And almost just as naturally I didn’t draw. Today however I decided to take action. After putting dinner in […]
My first watercoloured drawing in my large Moleskine. Also my first drawing in a long time.
My complete palette, latest aditions: mauve, indian red, olive green, burnt umber and cadmium orange.
Currently, I have these colours in my paintbox, in this order. I still have four openings (maybe 5, I also have chinese white in a tube) and wonder what colours to add. What colours shall I add? I think I could use some orange, a lighter blue-purple and maybe some darker greyer brown and green. Ideas?
