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 […]

Trying to draw Wismarplatz in Winter


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


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 […]
