The Eiffel Tower’s dream

Le Géant des Beaux Arts is a wonderful, really big art shop in Paris. They have a monthly art competition on their Facebook page. For November  the theme is ‘rêve’, dream.

This was what I came up with. Everyone dreams of visiting Paris, and maybe the Eiffel Tower is dreaming of seeing the world. : ) How would we know…
It’s not a great piece of art, only a fun project, with which I will most probably not win the box of pens. : ) I’ll just go buy it myself.

The dream…
Pen and felt pens.

Earth quote

Pen sketch, maybe typography, don’t really know what to call this. I was only trying something new. I did not plan the picture. Only started with the tulips, and then found the quote, which I thought could go with the picture. Really working the wrong way round.

After more than a few hours with my pens, on A2 paper.

The digital protea

Putting the brushes away for a while and trying some digital art.  It’s still art, and just as much work, or effort, to finish. : )

Vector drawing – Illustrator

The nice part of digital art, is that you can create one picture and then with a bit of ‘cutting and ‘pasting’ create many more with very little effort.

Even a bunch or flowers, just like that…
