Hello friends!

I'm back and it'was such a pleasure to read all your comments and mails,thank you!
My holiday was really in old mediteran style,so I tried to adapt myself,keeping my color diary without any digital device and making things with my hands.Here are some pages from my sketchbook,I will post more drawings tomorrow because some overflowing bags are yelling my name right now!

Oh these are wonderful! The fig page is my favourite. And you have such a nice and sweet handwriting that really blends in with your illustrations.

Diana:I used pocket watercolors, name of the product is Cotman Field PLUS from Winsor&Newton,I really highly recommend it.It's incredibly practical and small so you can draw in almost every occasion,plus I used water soluble color pencils but just for some details.

I love these. Just wonderful. The fig branches are amazing and I love your little colour swatch tags. It makes me want to get a paint box out right now (although I wouldn't know what to do with it). Please share more of your holiday journals - those images are my favourite ones all week.

I have always wanted to go to Germany on holiday but it has always scared me given that fact that I don't speak German. I'm trying so hard to learn german its just taking too long.

Hi there! This is an amazing sketchbook. I've been assembling a community of artists who enjoy sketching. I've begun a blog about this, and we intend to begin a collaborative sketchbook soon. If you're interested in participating, check out http://www.communitysketchbook.blogspot.com/

And keep up the great work!

My gosh, these are so beautiful. You should really sell more prints at your Etsy shop. I made a post about your calender (and of course linked your blog and shop) I hope that's ok...
