My exhibition – a small success

I am happy with my exhibition so far. The opening day is when one sells the most, like my first exhibition in April it was mostly friends who bought and I am so happy they did. Next year the challenge will be to sell to strangers outside of my circle, I have a summer show that will be a true test as I am not the organiser of the event. I’ve started painting for that exhibition already as I have lots of free time right now at my current exhibition.

Transsexual model

This was a first for me, I’d never sketched a transsexual model before. It was a challenge, part female – part male. I’m happy for the model, that she was proud and wanted to pose in front of strangers. It was a difficult session.

 

Tuesday’s life drawing

Rosa again. I struggled to find form, to be inspired. That’s the way it goes.

 

Monday’s life drawing

A young tall gymnast with cyclist thighs. He had some interesting poses, like when he stood on his head for two minutes and held perfectly still.

 

 

Tuesday’s life drawing

I seem to be back in the swing of thing when it comes to my life drawing. I’m keeping it simple at the moment, I use a 2mm 3b and 3mm 6b mechanical pencil. No watercolouring and no charcoal to distract me from catching the pose.

More life drawing from last week

Trying hard to clear a backlog of work that needs to be published. Trouble is, I need to paint too.

Dark period

Sailing home for winter 12 x 8 cm

Last week it was a bad reaction to what I ate, this week I have totally got the flu and seem to spend most of my days sleeping. Yesterday, I managed three small watercolours. I have an exhibition in the Old Town here in Stockholm starting on the 3rd of December so I thought I’d better get a move on. The paintings are rather dark, the days are getting shorter here, the sky is a numbing grey and I don’t feel so good.
