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

2018

Feliz año nuevo a todos!
Seguimos en la primera semana, así que no me retrasé demasiado! :)
Yo celebré el 1 de Enero con una caminata por los alrededores hasta un río que aún no conocía, el Nidder.
