Like I have mentioned before, one of my most popular post and on one of my favourite drawings is this art drawing. I have even made a little store on zazzle where some people actually buy stuff with a print of the owl. I think that is really fun! I even have my own mug with a print of the owl on it! I use it all the time. It is one of my favourite!

And I have never stopped drawing birds and especially owls! Here are two birds I have drawn. I think the owl is really cool! He look so dumb! I have many more drawings of owls I want to share with you in the future! So, stay tuned!

New art journal

Tags

Yeah, that’s right!

New_Art_journal_photo_ink_on_a_table_thick_paper_Maria_Christina_Heidemann

The art journal I have been sharing some of my drawings from had to be replaced. The reason is the paper in the book is very thin. You can only use a pencil to draw on it. You can not use any ink or marker, which is pretty boring. I like using other tools and not only pencil.

Here is a photo of how it looks like when using marker:

I also had another problem with it. I usually use a very soft pencil when I draw. And all the pages got messy because when I drew on another page the soft pencil got rubbed all over the page. I know you can avoid that if you use fixative spray, which I bought the same day I bought a new art journal.

So, I am only going to sketch in the old art journal with pencil, and have a lot of fun in my new art journal with a bunch of other different tools!

I still have alot of different drawings from the old art journal I want to share with you, and I will also post other drawings from this journal here on my blog. :)

Here is a tip from me to you, my dear creative followers: If you are going to buy an art journal, do not buy the cheapest one, because the paper is most likely very thin and that is crap.

“A mathematician, like a painter or poet, is a maker of patterns. If his patterns are more permanent than theirs, it is because they are made with ideas.”

– G. H. Hardy

Here is a drawing from my art journal. It is fascinating how cool drawings you might create if you just draw the same, simple shape over and over again.

Norwegian summer in its full glory

The summer this year has been very cold and cloudy, but finally the this week it has been sunny and not a single drop of rain, every single day!

Yesterday I was at Hedmarksvidda, chilling, grilling hot dogs, fishing, harvesting blueberries and photographing the beautiful nature.  I want to share some of my photos and show you how beautiful Norwegian nature is!

These berries are so yummy! I have harvested about 2 kilos blueberries yesterday, and I probably ate a kilo as well. :)

This is a blueberry bush. They also look pretty nice without the berries.

This is a cloudberry! My uncle and dad loves them. I ate them right away when I found one. They are pretty hard to find. I think people have harvested most of them already.

One fascinating creature near swampy areas and lakes is the firefly! They are really cool! It was really hard to photographing them, but I actually managed to get some nice photos of them!

Blue bellflowers. They are so pretty! I think they used to be my grandmothers favourite.

It is fun to play around with the camera and the focus of the lens. Here are some grass straw.

It is really pretty when focusing on only some straw and have all the other grass blurred out in the background.

When walking back to the car I noticed some trees are actually turning yellow, reminding me the autumn is near. It is kind of sad because the summer has been so cold this year, and now we feel the summer is finally here! But, I can also look forward to it because it is really colourful and beautiful! I can not wait to to photograph the autumn!

I hope my photos inspires you to bring your camera with you and go for a walk yourself!

Each one is beautiful

A child is……..

A butterfly in the wind,
Some can fly higher than others;
but each one flies the best it can.
Why compare one against the other?

Each one is different!
Each one is special!
Each one is beautiful!

The art journal’s start

Tags

, , , , , ,

art_journal_sketches_doodles_drawings_drawing_owl_book_Maria_Christina_HeidemannFrom the day I bought this art journal it took me a while to start drawing in it, and I did not start to draw in it until one day when I really needed to relax and have some kind of mindfulness.

Some few months ago my grandmother in the Philippines passed away. My grandmothers funeral was kind of this journal’s start. It was a very stressful and sad time, life felt hopeless, both because of my job situation at home and because of loosing my grandmother. I needed some kind of mindfulness and started drawing.

Drawing gives me peace and I recommend everyone who feels like taking a break from challenges of life to draw..
