Banana Bundt Cake (aka Gugelhupf)

It's been a while that I had a brush in my hand. Or blogged here. I have overused my arms at both home, painting, and at work, typing and handling stacks and stacks of paper. So, I have been taking it easy during the past few weeks, and will need to continue to do so.
Yesterday was the first time I did a watercolor sketch again in a long time (it felt rather wobbly).

Here it is, with the corresponding recipe!

Every once in a while, I just like to get out there and sketch what is right in front of me while birds are chirping all over and the rain is still dripping off the leaves.

Hello folks, it's been a while! I've been neglecting this blog. In fact, I might continue to do so.
In the meantime, here's a sketch:

Sketching at the museum

Every first Saturday of the month (as we happily found out), the admission to the Museum zu Allerheiligen in SH is free. Perfect for a monthly sketchout in these icy cold temperatures!

At the Manora restaurant, waiting for the museum to open.

The ideal female form according to people from Oaxaca, Mexico, 1st cent. BC - 2nd cent. AD. 

Urn from Colombia, 10-15th cent. BC. 

We then proceeded to the next kebab & falafel take out for something warm.

Advent calender

I've been busy.
Right now I am painting the 2014 edition of the gnome advent calender and time is ticking. :-)

We had some gorgeous weather yesterday so I couldn't pass up the opportunity to sketch outside and get away from the drawing desk.
This is a hazel tree/shrub. There are hazelnuts in the project I am currently working on, so it was nice to sketch something related to it.
