X-mas newspaper Illustration.

Commissioned illustration for Luzerner Zeitung.
Only requirement: the christmas feeling! no politics, no cynicism, just christmas. ok.
sketches are done, just decided to do it in acrylics to get some thick sugar-coated kitsch... ups, is that cynicism already. i'll try to keep it honest and fun.

here the process so far, from thumbnail sketches to whatever...

plein air

Well, the painting en plein air has become a studio paining. The whole natural flow it had disappeared, but it now has this Wes Anderson-esque feeling, in my opinion. I like that.

painting en plein air

Last week, with the last november sun, i went painting outdoor, which i've been trying to do more often. One of the painings is this forest. I liked the brushstroke in the original (scroll down), but not the greyish color. So the last few days i've been overpainting it. It lost the fresh flow, but gained depth, and i really like it. I'll be posting some more of the plein air works soon.
