dc No 149: underwear

As I prepare the figs for a quiche
(delicious together with goat's cheese!), this Autumn day comes to my mind. 
Birds have singing like in Spring, it is warm (today, at the 1st of November are 19,7°C in Hamburg!) and on numerous trees are still so many leaves... leaves... hmm,
I have an idea for the theme of the drawing challenge: underwear

a figleaf...

maybe the very first underwear in art history

socially acceptable
for bashful mantling of the privat parts.

I have drawn a leaf of a fig with a nib and green ink on an old lino
(Roses, made it for a book in 1991). This week's drawing challenge underwear is the theme of our hostess Stefanie Seltner. Please come to her place for more underwear.

Wish you a delicious day!


today: No 149  Stefanie Seltner
with underwear at the first weekend of November

No 150 Ariane with Colour

No 151 Carole with FOLDS 
at the weekend 15th + 16th of November 2014


who is our next host?
Shall I or is there anybody else, who want to?

  1. love your fig leaf
    and your photos of amazing foods
    i would have never thought to put figs and goat cheese together
    i miss not living around figs, citrus, avocados and so many other fruits that do not grow in the north country
    lovely post

  2. apart from the fact, that it is really tough to look at those figs, but not getting a piece from that Quiche; I love your approach. the drawing is so beautiful. have a great Sunday and seriously, enjoy that Quiche!

  3. That's a nice idea. No washing machine, enough leafs. Easy and simple. Beatiful drawing, I like the background.

  4. HA! that's Awesome Ariane- I love this idea in relation to Stefanie's theme- very original thinking...and that quiche sounds heavenly to boot :)

  5. Das ist wirklich eine wundervolle Interpretation! Und ganz klar Unterwäsche!! Ich weiß nicht, warum, aber die aufgeschnittene Feige auf dem letzten Bild hat irgendwie was erotisches...aber vielleicht ist das auch nur meine (verdorbene) Phantasie... ;-))

  6. Oh funny Rose, we had the same idea! xo Carole

    1. Ariane, I can host Nov 15th weekend. Will let you know what theme later this week. xo Carole

  7. yes, the same idea... and I like it!
    Drawing challenge always so fascinating with all its different participants, isn´t it? I love it!
    thank you x Stefanie

  8. i like your build up, as usual. i'd love to come sit at your dining room table, by the way. and such a precious line drawing... where past and present meet. you incorporate the senses. n♥

  9. yes, a figleaf is enough. Beautiful drawing!

  10. ;^))
    such beautiful colors
    and your build up (as nadine says) is grand!
    i have fig in the garden
    which is getting more naked every day ;^))


  11. To me this is the best interpretation. Both you & Carol thought of the fig leaf perfect & makes such nice drawings!

  12. I would like to be the host for the next dc of 22 and 23 November. - eric
