Bird studies from Birdpark Olching

I spent few hours in a bird park close to Munich today, which is open only over the weekend from April to November . I haven`t been there for ages, this was actually my second visit in five years,, and I was happily surprised to see bird species from all over the world. I promised myself to go back with colours next time..

New life studies- Hellabrunn zoo Munich

I spent few hours in the zoo today,looking after new models for a drawing course I`m giving in the zoo next Saturday. I used mainly black ballpoint pens and fineliners, but in case of the Indian elephant I tried to combine two colours, orange & black..

Canadian impressionists exhibition in Munich

There is a very interesting exhibition about the Canadian impressionists in Munich and it`s really worth a visit! I spent there a couple of hours with a good friend today and I must say I have to go back! Attached, the only sketch I managed to finish today, a portrait of Jean Baptiste Cholette painted by Marc-Aurele de Foy Suzor-Cote, one of the leading Canadian impressionists. I used a Staedtler ball point pen to do it. Here is the Link to the exhibition: https://www.kunsthalle-muc.de/en/exhibition/details/canada/

European mole cricket study

European mole cricket, life study. An unusual subject for me....A friend of mine found this impressive insect in his garden and brought it to me. I`ve used a magnifying glass to study it and let it then free. The painted image is three times the size of the original . Attached also an other study of a mole cricket I`ve painted from a dead specimen back in 1993
