How does one get better at painting clouds? Well, that was the question I had at the beginning of this week. I admire Sergej Temerev a lot so really it’s not that difficult. I just looked at as many watercolours of his as possible, there is a good Pinterest page featuring his work, here’s the link. I also looked at all the YouTube videos I could find. I’ve done this before but one has to repeat and practice a lot if one wants to get better.
Yes, so nice to be life drawing again after the Christmas break.
I took myself to Konstnärshuset Tuesday. The model, Elena was excellent as always. The lighting is so good at this venue, having a good model too is very inspiring.
My Life drawing (Meldrum Kroki) started last night (Thursday). It’s proving very popular, my living room was totally full of enthusiastic sketchers. The model, Kinda was great, everyone was delighted with her. I will publish some drawings in the next few days. That’s that, now I’m off to lunch in town. I’m going to treat myself to my favourite Sushi restaurant, Ichiban.
The other week I had my first watercolour demonstration. I was honoured to be asked by the ATG Art Society here in Stockholm. It was a small group that I painted for but for me it was a perfect start to something that might develop in the future.
I still see myself as a student so it is amusing when others ask me to show how I paint.
Cerold Johansson who is responsible for art acquisition at the Nordic Watercolour Museum has bought one of my paintings! It arrived safely today with the glass still intact. To say that I am happy would be a bit of an understatement 😀
