See ya!

Abstract animals & Klimt’s letter from Munich

Continued with this backpiece. Coming together nicely, but there’s still a bit more to do. This time we also added the image from one of the Gustav Klimt’s letters. This one is taken from a 1897 letter from Klimt in Munich to Emilie Flöge in Vienna. The hart and wings. Originally it wast just a black line drawing, but we added some colors as well.
Hopefully we manage to finish it in December!

Elephant & dolphins

Finished the elephant-lady with mandala on  the back!

 

This is my customer’s mom, having her children and grandchildren with her all the time. A cover-up/rework + added some more dolphins.


‘phant-lady

Customer drew herself a design, an elephant-lady with four hands and a tail of a mermaid.Lovely combination. I really like it.
Anyway, she also wanted to have something behind the ‘phant-lady, so I drew a mandala there.
Photo is doing no justice to it, but the mandala is done with the gray ink – Silver, by Intenze. Later on, when it’s done and healed I’ll try to catch the colours better.
The Silver and some other grays have become my favourite inks lately.

A work in progress:
