newly harvested lemon

I had a problem with my computer that is why I was silent for a while. Fortunately, all my files have been recovered. There is still to be done with the computer, but it is now working although it runs a bit slower. Being not good in the technical aspect of the computer, I really have no idea what went wrong.
Anyway, at the moment I am busy with a bigger size painting which I am not yet ready to show it here. For the meantime, here is a small piece (ATC size) done on a scrap watercolor paper. Normally I do this small piece when I have little time to paint but has the urge to use my brush.
We love using lemon juice to our food and drinks that is why it is always present in our kitchen. I think lemon is a healthy fruit to have.
Have a nice weekend to all!

little boat

I started this boat last June but stopped working on it because I was busy with other things. Yesterday however I was able to finish it. The photograph that inspired this piece belongs to my niece Anna. This is in watercolor and the size is 24 x 30 cm. Hope you'll all have a nice weekend.

Another autumn leaf

The colors of this leaf tempted me to sketch and paint again another autumn leaf. So here it is. Have a nice day to everyone.

Colors of the start of autumn

I based this from actual leaf. I like the different colors from this leaf which to me indicate that autumn season has just come.

The Schwebebahn

During our short visit (4 days) to some cities in Germany, one thing that really amazed me was the Schwebebahn in Wuppertal. In English I think it is called suspension train, but I called it hanging train. I enjoyed very much the rides that we had with the train while doing our sightseeing tour in the city. I have never seen before such kind of railway. It is an amazing innovation. It is running above the river and it is really swinging. One time I could not immediately get out of the train because it was swinging. Anyway, for those who have not seen the train, I have here some photographs for you.

The driver in front of me and the light green arcs that hold the hanging train rails.
Here the hanging train is coming while passengers were waiting for a ride in one of the stations.
I took this photo while under the train station. And here we can see the train in blue is coming.
Taken while inside the train. The arcs in light green hold the train.

sketch of a puffin

A few years ago, we got a set of coasters as a gift from a family member who had sailed to the north of Scotland (Schetland island). The coasters were designed with puffins images. Based on one of the images, I made a quick pencil sketch and brushed some watercolors on it. The outcome looks like puffin and I'm showing it here.
