Follow me on a short journey that shows 12 watercolour paintings which have been painted during the course of a full calender year – a year of my life. Enjoy!

Animated Illustration

I’ve always wandered how my illustrations would look like and behave if they were animated. Then, just recently, a Czech Animation Artist (Michal MaruÅ¡ka) did exactly that with a mixed-media illustration I’ve finished in spring 2022.

Inspired by Spring

There have been times when the goings-on in our world have been somewhat more positive. But fear not, human being, it has always been like that. Has it not?! 🙂

Being able to offer a sligthly more cheerful scenery – thanks to being a freelance illustrator/watercolourist – the following images are showing impressions from my current sketchbook as well as a large Watercolour-Mixed-Media-Collage which I have finished today. Enjoy!

Book Illustration I Architecture for kids

I am currently working on illustrating a book in cooperation with the Austrian architect and author Klaus-Jürgen Bauer. It’ll be the first part in a planned series that will guide young audiences through the world of architecture. The first part is due to appear in 2022 at WortWeit publishing company (German only). You can read more on the topic here.

A little bit of sunshine on your walls

Over the years I have painted many a wall and even furniture. I do appreciate the positive impact that a certain colour can have on a room and yourself. However, every other Interior Decorator might be familiar with the phenomenon of a wall colour not remaining quite as long on a wall as one could expect. I guess, it has something to do with creativity and the self progressing further continously. So over time, I turned towards painting fields of colour onto the walls which are otherwise painted white in order to keep the backround neutral wherever it is necessary.
The colour that is on my mind for a while now is yellow. It has a cheerful, uplifting and inspiring impact on me and is visible in all sorts of things I am working on momentarily.

We are slowly moving towards the season I like most during the year: autumn. For its outbursts of yellows, oranges, reds, and different textures in nature. On one side you can see radiant colours of ripe apples, paers, and berries outside, and on the other side also shades of brown or grey, when trees and bushes are sheding their leaves, only leaving a variety of elongated structures for instance. In that process you can see both, a richness, that touches your senses, but also an idea of parting.

When painting walls, it is rather important to keep in mind, that the colour will indeed change a room, but that it might also have an impact on your mood. So when choosing a colour, it is wise to consider the size of the room, its content, and its general brightness beforehand.

Shop – Greeting Cards

In times where handwriting, and especially hand-written cards and letters, are being more and more neglected, I find it even more important to preserve this way of communication. For in a personal way, it has a quite different meaning as well as being a contemporary document.

The Greeting Cards below are printed on a lovely 300 gr paper and come with high quality envelopes in a set of 2, 3, 4 or 5 with printed motives from my range of watercolour illustrations and paintings.

Recipe for a Good Letter
by Amos Russel Wells

To write a good letter,
take a handful of grit,
A plenty of time and a little of wit.
Take patience to “set” it,
and stir it all up.
With the ladle of energy,
then fill a cup.
With kind thoughts
and helpful thoughts,
merry thoughts too.
With bright words,
and wise words,
and words strong and true.
Then seal with a love kiss,
and stamp it with care.
Direct to your friend’s heart,
and presto! ’tis there.
