Animalistic self portrait
(not so) fine-liner on pocker reporter’s
This is the one I promissed – a view from my balcony in watercolour. If you guess correctly, then you’ll know where I’m from. I’ll give you a couple of clues though:
1. In the background you can see a small part of the old town with St. Antony’s church and Emperor’s mosque.
2. Further back, there is a mountain on which bob and sledge competitions were held during 14th Winter Olympic Games. The same moutain was used to lounch a record long city siege.
3. At the bottom-left corner (just below the balcony wall) Austrian Arch-duke Ferdinand was assained almost exactely 95 years ago – which triggered World War One.
4. At bottom right corner you can see the tracks of the first fully operational electrificated tram-line in Europe.
Do not be confused by the colour of the river (it is a river belive me) – That is its natural colour, and the most realistic one in this view. If you’ve guessed correctly than you are a Geographical genius!
Olive tree and a resting boat – Watercolour on W/C Large
The same weekend, same beach, same W/C sketchbook, same brush and same hand…
Cave bear (Ursus spelaeus)
I did this one, 2 years ago, for an educational board for Bijambare reserve, which has 7 caves. It was an EC financed Project led by my(humbe)self. We did tourist paths within the longest cave (420 m), illumination, toilets, parking, Info-house, promo-materials, Info-boards, brochures, film, radio jingle, etc. We used photographs and technical drawings for everiting else, but there were no photos of the cave bear, and available illustrations were copyrighted, so I did it myself.
Not so long ago (in geological terms) such bears used to live there…
Mediterranean beach – Watercolour
Last weekend we went to an deserted camping area. The beach was reserved just for us. The animal you can see is an inflatable plastic dolphin my daughter uses to ride on.
this is what I see in the backyard while drinking coffee. The upper portion is something like a bridge, I guess?
