I just started on the december sketchbook!
I have one for july/aug/sept, can’t find it right now though 🙂
The funny thing is that I started out with 3 months in a book, went to 2 months in a book…I just have to fit one month into one now!!
At first I thought it would be nice to collect my stuff in one place, true enough, but I have also found that I challenge myself in a way to draw, it is good I easily can go back looking at the previous day’s work 🙂 my aim was also to develop my own style and I rest easy in that goal, even I (!!) can see there has been development, and it feels really good! Now I want practise the full view pictures, you now the ones with a story going on and has an action in them, this month I am challenging myself to draw pictures that give you some kind of story!
Here are the two first pictures in the december sketchbook.
Btw, did I mention I have found that I really suck at drawing hands…so you will probably see many weird looking hands the coming future 😂
The one above I just added things to to practise the full view picture 🙂 it was some time ago I did them …
We went to the Art Museum of Norrköping on sunday to draw. I normally get like 15 drawings down in a two hours drawing session…hear me when I say I made…..4!!!
Next session is at a local café on wednesday ❤️
It feels good trying to work my drawings a bit more than I usually do 🙂
Something hit me tonight when I got home, it was something I had thought of before but not in this enlightened way… I feel like I have one way of working when I draw or paint from reality…and another when I draw my woods and made-up people…offcourse I should merge the two…the thought have gone through my mind many times…but I have had the though ‘how?’ as a respond…but tonight it felt like I all of a sudden just got the answer to my ‘how?’
A few words about my idea and two drawings to start it all in my sketchbook, I usually feel it is best to catch the moment when it comes around 🙂
Now time to sleep on it, and try again tomorrow ❤️
So tonight we met again at this lovely local café in Norrköping. Coffee. Cheesecake. Drawing. Talking. All the things I really enjoy and besides I like to talk (I think my students could agree on that) 😉
Here are a few drawings from tonight. I started off by drawing the same view two times and turned to the candle we all drew from different angles, and then an apple…a plastic too perfect apple….
Today I also brought a friend with me, it feels like we are slowly but steady expanding ❤
Tonight we met up at a local café in my town. My bearded man joined in to chill out (and I bought him coffee and cookie, could be that too).
I got to meet a really nice woman in the group I haven’t met yet, it turned out we shared taste of music to some extent 🙂
I did a few small drawings of what I had nearby, but since this is a more relaxed session I turned to my own kind of style and made some kind of portrait of how I am feeling.
I am working with my stomach problems and it is going really good! I feel good!! Or at least better 😉
This sunday we went to IKEA!
It was fun but harder than you may think 🙂
And wow where does all the crying…no SCREAMING children come from….
Snow has fallen, though more up north at work than in my home town.
My sketch book is just next to me just incase…and while browsing the web I found that it would be AWESOME to have my own tree house, pinterest here I come….
Just me checking in…
Last week I had a lecture about school, off course I can’t help but draw at the same time as I listen and take notes, so here is a (some doodles) drawing from the lecture.
Also on thursday last week it was a drawing session with Urban sketchers. I did this really hard decoration that was standing on the table.
All of a sudden one of the workers on the café ask me and my company if we would like a cappuccino they accidentally had made, well yes, off course!!
So from here I drew the mug, but that was not easy, the cup was really smooth so there was no sharp lines breaking the shape, I did a few sketches that got….weird…
And then on friday I think it was I drew from references on pinterest, just quick sketches, but one I felt kind of good about.
Well it ain’t perfect but I liked the reference picture, it had a good feeling around it 🙂
Tomorrow it is work again, which means probably a few drawings in the evening to relax my mind!
Today we went to the art museum of Norrköping, my hometown.
I started of with a climbing sculpture.
There were more of these kind of sculptures placed all around the museum… I found a crounching guy!
But these sculptures were not realistic in detail, no, their shape has been smoothed out and it was really hard to find the right balance, especially the hands…
I tried several times, but I am not really sure it gave as much as I would have wanted… I moved on!
I made a basic one point perspective, and found a lovely still life!
I also entered a part of the “Utopia” exhibition with a few friends and ended up drawing this huge construction pf areas to sit and read books on the theme of utopia, on pillars they had put cactus plants 🙂 really fun working on the basics of two point perspective in real life 🙂
Have a nice sunday evening!!
