Two photos showing the process of drafting a Viking-style knotwork triskelion with zoomorphs.
The first photo shows the original sketch at bottom right, then the detailed sketch on the left and the first inked version at top right. The second photo shows a second version, fully inked.
I changed the zoomorphs from the original unidentifiable zoomorphs to to a puffin, snake and dragon, and then to a snake, hound and parrot. The second version has a ram, fox and puffin.
I noticed these mallards sneaking up on a nesting swan in a park. I don’t know if they were intent on stealing sticks for nest-making, or if they were looking for food. Who knows: Maybe they were scouting prior to storming the castle. I couldn’t stay to watch, as the cob was on the path behind me and was showing signs of preparing to attack me.
Lava rocks in various shades. The colours of the lava rocks you find on the sides of volcanoes can range from yellow/brown to red to grey/black.
One morning, as my parents and I were preparing breakfast inside their motor home, which was parked outside an old farm my family owns, we got these visitors. Icelandic sheep are known for causing traffic problems on the highways in the summer, but these were just visiting the farm to sample the grass.
A tendril of creeper snaking down a wall.
This is the first of a series of photos I plan to post from my Grand Tour of Germany (with side trip into France) that I took in May of 2017. I will not be posting them in any particular order.
