Life drawing at Mäster Olafsgården

2018.02.19

I have been busy so I am only publishing these life drawings now, one week later almost. I realise that sketching is a mental game, if one is tired or simply not inspired one has to overcome and perform well anyway. I guess you would call it having a professional approach. Actually, when one is able to lift oneself above uninspired gloom it is very rewarding indeed.

Kinda, one of my favourite life drawing models. It was such a pleasure to sketch her, I didn’t mind freezing my butt off at the bus stop later because I just missed the bus.

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.
