Sketches below zero

…or what I did this Christmas. Not literally all of these were done at less than 0°C, but some obviously were.

The first frozen sketch this winter


This is what frozen watercolor looks like...

This morning around nine I sat in the sun, making a sketch, when I noticed some annoying clumps in my paint. First I wondered if some dirt had gotten in my palette; but no, it is just officially too cold now to make watercolor sketches outside in the morning without heat bags. I will need […]

Studies in Memory and Repetition


Boxhagener Str., pencil on location, colors/washes put in from memory at home.

Watercolors made in the mornings around where I live, repeating views, learning to put in the colors from memory. Also, some copies after and words on William Turner.

More March Sketches and a Double Sketchbook


Page 06b detail.

These are from the same sketchbook as the last posting, but it is a twofold sketchbook: It is half made from very bright, almost blueish Dorée 200 drawing paper, whose color I love, which is a good paper for dry media, and I have a 50 m roll lying around under my desk which will […]

Lots of People on Public Transport in January


A Lot of People on Public Transport

I’ve been looking for a way to make my public transport drawings ‘exhibitable’, take them out o sketchbooks somehow, mostly by using folded single sheets of different sizes, like here.

The Rest of the Dirty Bits from the Zequenz Sketchbook


IMG_oo73detail

I’m finished with the Zequenz m sketchbook I have used for most of my public transport sketches yet this year, and in which I’ve both discovered the fun in making a mess and been driven to make real clean black lines with a pen on its smooth paper. Here are the last rather messy and […]

Sketchdump


Collage

There is so much to say about these, and all the new options that make my head swirl, but until I hand in my Magister dissertation there probably won’t be many words on here. I’m still drawing, though.

Trying to draw Wismarplatz in Winter


Wismarplatz

After some months of basically being locked in by the cold, rain, and snow, every day I wake up hoping that this day the sun is going to come out and allow me at least a tiny bit of sketching outside. On Friday it didn’t, but I drew anyway, without taking off my gloves. That […]

Last Day’s Sketches


Sketch

Warm and dry days smelling of spring made it possible to do some outdoor sketching again. I miss drawing outside! It was a glimpse of the sun that drew me outside on sunday, checking out the scene at the fleamarket. Details: Don’t forget: Tomorrow is Sketch Crawl Day (I’ll be drawing a strange exhibition here […]
