I am much happier with my sketches this time around. I felt confident while using pen and wash to capture the male-model’s different poses. I want to emulate Charles Reid but I seem to be mixing in a little Francis Bacon and Lucian Freud in there too! No harm in that, but I want to be more subtle in my execution. I still have problems mixing Cerulean Blue (red shade), Cadmium Yellow Pale and Cadmium Red together to create skin tones in the short time I have for each sketch. It’s fun trying to get better though.
My name is David Meldrum, I love painting watercolours. Another passion I have is life drawing, I run a class called Meldrum Kroki. I was born in Ireland but since 1990 I have lived in Stockholm, Sweden.
