The following two pictures were my first and for a long time the only serious attempt at drawing. The originals are watercolor paintings by Zdenek Burian. I do not remember how much time the pictures took. I think few hours. I used thin roller (ball ink-pen). (A4 size)

The following drawings took me 10 to 30 minutes each and were created all in one row without an interrupt. I have used thin black marker for these drawings, which is not the best, but I did not have anything else anyway. In addition, paper for printers that I used was not the best choice.

The first picture was created only by my hand, not my mind. So I did not know what it would look like until it was finished. (A5 size)

The following pictures were inspired by some photos I found. (less than A4 size)

The following picture is an experiment with colored pencils. I used only six colors I found at home and one standard HB pencil. The only colors used in the picture are shown in the bottom-left corner of the picture. As you can see all colors (except black) are quite bright and not very suitable to use for drawing nature. I had to mix the colors properly to obtain needed effect. Because of this fact, this picture can be called painting instead of drawing. (less than A4 size)

At this point I started draw images on request. All of them were gifts so far. The first two are christmas 2006 gifts.

There are more drawings I made, but I usually do not scan the pictures before I give them away, so these scans are what I got from the owners (in addition, I do not have control over the quality of the scanned images). home
