Life drawing at Mäster Olafsgården

2107.12.04

I enjoy having my own life drawing sessions but I don’t draw as much as I’d like to because of all the responsibilities – this is why I still go to life drawing whenever I can. Monday evening in the old town is a good place to be if you are suffering from life drawing abstinence.

I prefer using coal

Mäster Olofsgården, 2017.11.27

It was nice to use coal last night at Master Olafsgården. I mentioned in my last post that I don’t use coal during my own Meldrum Kroki sessions as I have to serve coffee and biscuits during the break. So it was nice getting my hands dirty last night. The model (Derlyflow) was quite eccentric but at the same time interesting to draw. She has many YouTube clips, here is one.

Sketched on A3 paper with a coal pencil and coal dust applied by my finger.

 

Meldrum Kroki nr. 9

Yes, I have had 9 life drawing sessions in my living room and it is proving to be a great success. This week will be the last until January because I have to travel to Ireland. I wonder is there any life drawing in Belfast? I’m sure there is.

These sketches were drawn on A3 paper using a 2b graphite mechanical pencil. The model is very pretty which always makes it very hard to sketch her as one can never do her justice. Here I have tried my best. Please note that I do not use coal on my own life drawing sessions as I have to serve coffee and biscuits during the break. It would not be okey to serve with coal miner’s hands!

A5 sketches again

Meldrum Kroki

I run my own life drawing session every Thursday evening. I have responsibilities making sure everyone is happy. This means I have no place to sit as all are taken, a full house makes me happy but it does mean that I have to stand in the background and sketch the best I can. This is why I am using a small A5 sketch book, it is small and easy to hold.
The model is an artist from Syria, she was very good and I hope she will return to Meldrum Kroki early next year.
