I`m just back from Hungary , after having spend a memorable week in a beautiful part of the country close to Croatian borders. Golden orioles and cuckoos everywhere, as well many Woodpecker species...Check out the ANF page for more:
and this one to know more about the Jankovich estate:

Attached some of the work I managed to do there:

Caravaggio and his followers exhibition in Old masters gallery

Back to the Old masters gallery (Alte Pinakothek) to visit the current exhibition dedicated to Caravaggio and his artist-followers , mainly Dutch.. Worth a visit despite the darkness, I had a lot of problems with the low light conditions..The first one is St Andreas painted by Nicolas Tournier ( a Frenchman) in 1616
And the second study detail of Maria painted by the dutch Hendrick ter Brugghen in "The Annunciation" in 1629 . https://www.pinakothek.de/caravaggisti

Tawny owl "Martin" life study

A quick sketch of the Tawny owl "Martin" done during a birdwatching "tour" in the Nymphenburg park yesterday. Sepia fineliners

Eurasian sparrowhawk life study

Eurasian sparrowhawk female. My first ever life study of this species..I spotted a pair breeding very close to my home and I hope to be able to make more studies in the nearest future

Ruddy shelduck -Moose studies in Wildpark Poing

I spent one more day in Wildpark yesterday and to my surprise I spotted a wild Ruddy shelduck pair accompanying Greylag geese in one of the big park ponds. I did some fieldwork and I hope they are going to stay longer..They are such beautiful birds!

Tawny owl chick new study

I`ve got a call from a friend that a Tawny owl chick came out from his hole and drove to the park where I spent three hours. This is what I managed to sketch on location. Finelners & Pens

Wildpark Poing -new life studies

I spent few days in Wildpark accompanying my daughter who had to assist the Veterinarian for this period and tried to do some studies despite the bad weather conditions. Attached, the sketsches I managed to do on location.

New book about honeybees

Just got it, a book about Honey bees with my illustrations and published by Kosmos publishers-Stuttgart.Attached also, some of the illustrations included in this book

Golden jackal watercolour

Attached, this time a commissioned watercolour I did lately, as well the preliminary sketch and the original photo where it is based on. I had to change the light conditions in order to create a certain mood

"Florian" the Tawny owl, new studies

I spent several hours in Nymphenburg park hoping to make a proper watercolour study of "Florian" the only Tawny owl I didn`t manage to paint in colour yet. The owl was sitting outside his hole on a branch, enjoying the sunlight, until few Jays arrived screaming around and forced him to disappear in his hole..This is what I managed to get up to this point..

Portrait sketches

After two months I found the time to join the portrait group with our model posing for 2, 5, 10, 15 and 20 mintutes. I use to be quick when working outdoors but I don`t have to look at the clock as in this case. Attached,the images I managed to get within 2 hours in total.Many thanks to Andreas for organizing this event and Anastasia our model!
