just two simple sketches

I will be in Germany for a few days. So I want to wish you all a wonderful weekend. I hope to visit your blogs again late next week.  

I used artist pen and colored pencil here.

I used charcoal to sketch this bell pepper.

tulip, an old piece

I don't remember that I posted this tulip before. According to the date I'd written at the back of this painting, I painted it on 14 August 2011.

jonagold apple drawing

Last night I went to bed at about 12:00. I was not able to sleep immediately until I think almost 3am. So this morning I got up late and feeling not really good. I sat on our sofa until 9:30 and then prepared my breakfast. While I was eating, suddenly I thought of my new box of charcoal. I decided then to pick it up and drew this apple to try it. I have been using pastels but this is my first time ever to use a charcoal. I think I will use this medium more often for my drawing exercises.
Jonagold apple is my favorite kind of apple. Its taste is somewhat sweet and sour, and really crispy.

rose sketch

I have been missing my brushes and watercolors. So when I found time this afternoon, I immediately did this quick watercolor sketch directly on my 400g acrylic paper. I'm beginning to like this thick paper.

Acrylic in wet-in-wet

This is an imagined landschape. I tried acrylic here in a wet-in-wet technique especially for the sky and the green field. My verdict is that watercolor is still the best medium for this technique.
