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?

Es gibt Tage,
da werde ich von Bildern überflutet. Da heisst es dann, schön geschmeidig zu bleiben... und vor der Arbeit und danach rahme ich dann mit Kamera (und Smartphone) diesen wunderschönen Herbsttag am Eisenbach

There are days,
when I am overflowed by images. Then is the time for to keep smooth...
and before and after work I frame this beautiful autumn day at the Eisenbach with my camera (and smartphone



Hast du das Eichhörnchen vorbeihuschen gesehen?

Have you seen the squirrel scurry?

(pic No. 13)

PS: I will come to see your dresses (Patrice's theme of the drawing challenge last weekend) soon... and do you know the new theme of the dc this weekend, already? it's underwear at Stefanie Seltner's ;-)

Drawing challenge #148: dress

 For this week's drawing challenge
I wanted to create a new dress for my paperdoll


 I have found a little space on the kitchentable... 

 and design a red dress:

 in my favorite colour, of course,
 with v-neck, a little bit see-through chiffon for the sleeves, the skirt floats away from the body in an a-line style and in a length between proper length and old fashioned

I put on this (aquacolour) dress my paperdoll and added it to a page of a Vogue

Sweet Patrice 
is our hostess of this week with dress
(here in a beautiful dress designed and sewn by herself).
Please come to her amazing place to see more dresses of others.

Next week's hostess is Stefanie Seltner with:

Wish you a happy day!



*today: No 148 Patrice A. with dress

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

Die Folie ist runter von den Fenstern
(die Renovierungsarbeiten gehen dabei weiter)

The film is away from the windows
(the renovation works withal has been going on)

draußen ist es nun doch herbstlich geworden 
( obwohl ich auch die Zeichen des Frühlings erkenne ;)

outside it got autumnal yet again
(altough I can even see the signs of Spring ;)

Nach dem Umzug ist in der Burg noch längst nicht alles fertig. Ich werde von Ungeduld getrieben, lese aber auch gern ein gutes Buch... und freue mich auf die drawing challenge: 

After the move it not by a long chalk in the Castle has been finished. I am driven by impatience, but read a good book, too... and looking forward to the next drawing challenge:

dear Patrice is our host with her theme 'dress' at the 25th + 26th of October
