my first Ikebana

Friday, October 13th, 2017

Hi everyone!

What a busy week I’ve had.

Mon-Tue in Stockholm, Sweden,

Wed met a friend here in Helsinki,

Thu hair cut,

today we’re having dinner guests…so my post is very short today.

 

Last Saturday I participated in ikebana for beginners course.

It was very interesting but to really know how to make beautiful ones

you need years to learn…but it was a fun and interesting day!

 

 

Here’s my first ever ikebana –

have you tried/studied ikebana?

with pencil and charcoal 2.

Hi everyone!

 

Previous pencil & charcoal post is here.

 

This week we had to draw Nefertiti with charcoal.

We had a plaster statue as a model…

This second one was first totally ‘coaled’ and then I ‘draw’ with

brush and eraser.

with pencil and charcoal

Hi everyone!

 

I’ve drawn with pencil,

a lot!

Here are a few for

 

Theme Art challenge in September: ‘geometric art’

In our course ‘from drawing to painting’ medium was charcoal.

We did ‘a hand’ – huge hand.

First one was just outlines and the second was first colored with charcoal and then

‘drawn’ with chamois (and brush).

These are not ready but shows the idea…

I’d like to know which one of these works is your favorite and why?

 

 

Just curious….

 

 

Have a relaxing weekend!

 

 

croquis drawing with charcoal

Friday, May 20th, 2016

 

 

First set was one minute drawings.

It’s been loooong time I’ve done this.

First minutes were hard…

It’s been a while I’ve played with charcoal so the medium took some time

to warm up….

 

Here are two minutes drawings

You can see she’s sitting, right? 🙂

Five minutes was too hard this time….

I did it but it became total mess but was good practise.

One day I was listening the radio

and doodling with watercolors.

These details look like one work….

but it’s not true.

 

Macro shooting is great way to create new worlds…

This is how it really looks.
