Life Drawing at Konstnärshuset, Stockholm, 20150127 I have not much to say about these illustrations. A picture speaks for itself anyway, so I’ll just sign off now and get back to my drawing-board. Ten minute nude Five minute nude Ten minute study Five minute nude.
This female nude was incomplete until I got my fingers dirty with charcoal dust and finished the contours of her body. A4 nude, Fabriano sketch paper
We were a group of seven or eight Urban Sketchers on top of Katarina Elevator last Sunday. It was zero degrees, my water did not freeze but it didn’t dry very well either. After half an hour it got too cool for us and we retreated to a nearby café where we could warm up again. It… Continue reading Urban Sketching in zero degrees.
Venue: Konstnärshuset, Stockholm, 20150120 Ups and downs, that’s the way my abilities go when capturing a model’s pose. I’ve had this model several times before, I’ve always struggled to catch her beauty and elegant ballerina posturing. It’s strange because she is quite pretty.

This watercolour of a Stockholm tram took me two lunchtimes. I struggled with the background, I should have done a tonal sketch first, unfortunately I do not have time to be that professional. I prefer quantity to quality at the moment anyway, it’s more important for me to just paint as often as I possibly… Continue reading Lunchtime watercolour
Winter Bunny 20150109. Fabriano FG 300g 17 x 22 cm My lunchtime watercolours have to be simple in composition in order for me to complete a painting in 30 – 45 minutes. I choose sailing boats and water scenes partly for this reason and partly, well, I just like sailing. Some friends asked recently, “Do… Continue reading Lunch Bunny
