Feierabend im Fein

Fein, das feine Wasserhäuschen in der Grüneanlage..
Ich habe schon irgendwann ein Skizze von Ort hier gezeigt.. Aber nun kommen ein paar mehr.
Ist es doch ein geliebter Ort wenn das Wetter schön ist .. und dieser Frühling und Sommer können wir nicht meckern .. doch vielleicht etwas mehr Regen wäre nicht verkehrt! 😋

Frankfurt am Main

direct at the river shore, a Summer evening.
I drew this watercolor on location in 2016. All the people were outside enjoying the warm evening. At the background, the Mainhattan Skyline under the pink and golden sunset light.

A couple of months ago there was a Urbansketchers meeting in Aschaffenburg, a very nice city in Bavaria close to Frankfurt and along the Main River.
Even if it was quite cold and windy, we got to make a few sketches. Here is my contribution.


 After sketching outside, we went to the mythic Schlappeseppel brewery to eat some Wurst mit Kraut and drink some.. Bier of course 😋

Rhododendon Art Print

The 2018 has started with some very good news!


From October you could find -and buy- a fine art print of this Rhododendron pencil drawing in IKEA stores all over the world!💪
This is just the first one, in the new year you would find new prints. It makes me feel happy that many homes could have a beautiful botanical print from me, drawn with loads of love 😌😍
And I am so thankful to Ann and Rachel from ARTPRESS London who believe in my work and made this happen! 💖

Singersongwriters in Frankfurt

in March, one very cold Saturday, we went quite spontaneos to a music shop, No. 2 Records in Sachsenhausen, a beautiful neighbourhood in Frankfurt. There were playing two musicians, first Boohoo Music from Frankfurt. I don't find his website anymore, but it was a very lyrical music!
And afterwards 'Cannonball Stateman' from USA. A very different style, less slow, also indie and a bit heavmetal sometimes! I only could draw his rich, curly mane :D
