This was a two hour pose at the Swedish Academy of Realistic Art last Thursday, I can’t say I am happy with this in its entirety but some elements of the painting are ok.

37th Sketch Crawl

I was the lone Stockholm Sketcher this time around, I had a fun day relaxing in the cool autumn air and managed to produce three sketches. Drottningsgatan, Fjärilshuset and Kulturhuset.

Somebody who calls himself “The great artist of China” otherwise know  as Guan Weixing. This site is also worth viewing; which I will some other day. Visit here.

Lunchtime sketching resumes

I have been rather busy since the summer holidays. But today I was relaxed enough to do a little lunchtime sketch. I don’t know if anyone would recognise this artist, a hint is that he likes to sing about buildings.

Saturday’s life drawing session

I was relatively happy with my life drawing on Saturday. I have been studying my Charles Reid DVDs and some of his expert knowledge seems to have penetrated my thick skull. It is hard to apply new techniques when one is sketching and painting so fast, one doesn’t have time to think really, it’s instinctive. That is the benefit of practising, one improves slowly but more importantly, skills become second nature.
This week, I created frames for my sketches before the drawing session, I like the result of this, they feel like graphic novel stories. Three more drawings can be found on ” My Life Drawing 2012“.

Life Drawing

I was not really in form yesterday evening, a bit too tired to fully apply myself. Still, I gave it a go and a few sketches turned out okay. Visit “My Life Drawing 2012” or click here.
