An ink bouquet

This is my first attempt drawing flowers up close, which ended up as a bouquet. An ink bouquet I just felt in the mood for drawing some petals and flower heads, and started a doodle at the livingroom table.

Speed drawing people

For the past month, I've been trying to loosen up my drawing style a bit. I feel that I'm always putting too much time and details into my drawings, which makes them look unrealistic and overworked. There's just no room for the brain to itself put in the final details. So, as part of my…

Drawing cars. Oh, man!

A tree in Angkor Wat, Cambodia

A few years ago, we went traveling for seven weeks in South East Asia. One of the places we visited was the temple complex Angkor Wat in Cambodia. The place was packed with temples and monuments, so we barely got to see all the different areas in the day we spent there. I have loads…
