Red Riding Hood

I found this old painting of mine which I’d like to share with you because it has some nostalgic value to me: It is the first painting I did with my Intuos 4 and also the very first digital painting I ever created. So in this way it was the beginning of a very intense friendship between me and my new favorite medium.
The painting was inspired by a song of Patrick Wolf (which you can find here: Patrick Wolf – Short Story). I am a big fan of fairy tales and ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ has always been my favorite.
Looking at this painting today, I’d say it is very messy and a lot of stuff doesn’t really work in it. I had a lot to learn (and still have) but it’s nice to see my progress and development. Images like this show you where you once started and where you are today. <3

Summer Rain

At the moment it’s up to 40°C out there and awfully humid. The weather inspired me to do an environmental piece which catches the atmosphere of a warm summer day. But instead of picturing the suffocating heat I have chosen to focus on the relief which comes with warm summer rain… with the smell of wet grass and foliage, the fresh air and the beautiful sight of the light refracted by the rain. To make the experience perfect, feel free to listen to ‘Rainy Mood’ on rainymood.com. It’s wonderful and refreshing!
