A5 sketches

Meldrum Kroki

We had another great model at Meldrum Kroki last Thursday. Mollie is new to modelling but I thought her approach was very professional. I sketched on an A5 spiral-bound block. I often have to sketch standing with the use of no table or easel. I am the organiser of the event so I don’t get the best view or position to draw. I really don’t mind, I am really enjoying running my own life drawing session, fixing coffee, chatting and getting to know my life drawing friends a little more every time we meet.

 

My very own life drawing class

Meldrum Kroki

I feel so lucky, I have my very own life drawing class that I run in my home every Thursday evening. It’s proving to be very popular, I am learning a lot – like not to play music with too much of a beat. Brain Eno and Handel piano concertos seem to be appreciated most. I use studio lighting and that seems to be liked a lot. I at least think the lighting on the model is wonderful compared to the other life drawing venues in town.

Next year I aim to rent a larger space and have more attending Meldrum Kroki each week. But right now I am just taking just one step at a time.

 

Some sketches from my life drawing evenings

Here are some sketches I did at Meldrum Kroki last week and the other day. As I am running the life drawing evening it is not possible for me to sketch during the whole session. I really enjoy it anyway and I am happy just to do a few drawings.

 

Meldrum Life Drawing

2017.10.12

Meldrum Kroki (Meldrum life drawing). Yes, it does sound a bit pretentious but I will just have to get used to it. I started a life drawing evening in my apartment on the 5th of October this month. We have had two sessions so far and I and very happy with it’s success. I really feel that this is something I would like to develop. At the moment I can only have a maximum of 15 people in my living room so I have had to create a small Facebook group of life drawing friends. With time I will expand the group and make it public, right now it’s a very low profile, it has to be that way until Christmas at least. I am considering renting a large room next year so that the group can expand to 40 – 50 people. Time will tell if it will be a success or not.

NB. Today, my life drawing (Kroki) page is in Swedish and I do have plans to create an English version. Until then I advise you to copy the text and paste it into Google Translate. Thank you for your patience.
