So, yet another week has passed and it has been an interesting one for me. On Tuesday evening I met up with the members of Eclectic Arts and we had a very nice and fun evening. If you would like to have a look at the website please visit Eclectic Arts. Here you can read a bit more about us and what our aim is. You can also visit us on Facebook.
I have been doing some progress in my art this week, and at the moment I am working simultaneously on 4 pieces at the same time, they are different and require a different amount of time too. There is one that I have drawn up a couple of weeks ago, it’s in a larger format than I have been working on before, so that it self will take a little bit longer. But the subject is again, boats. Those of you that know me well, know that I love the sea and everything related to it. But then again I grew up on the west coast of Sweden, and have always lived near the sea. Where we had the granite cliffs, sail boats and all sorts of boats passing by in the summer time. The normal population on the island Orust, where I grew up, is 15K and in the summer time you can easily double that. It’s a popular tourist place and many city folks has their summer houses there. So, there is where my passion for the sea and boats started I think.
I am also working on a new portrait in pencil, I felt the inspiration to ‘dust’ off my pencils and do some pure sketching. It’s not easy but it came to me fairly quick. I am working on a family picture where I am putting together 3 pictures in the same drawing. The first face is my Dad, and the second my son and then the third my grandson. It takes some time working on it, but once I start I am fine. But must admit that facial hair is tricky to work with to make it look authentic. But as for everything a lot of practice is needed.
What else is happening in my part of the world, well we made a visit to the Botanic Garden in Dublin city on Saturday and I took a lot of photographs of flowers, trees and gorgeous areas. I just love being in touch with nature, I have a need for it ever so often. As a camera I was using my Samsung 4SG phone, and you would be surprised what quality the pictures has. Well, I will let you judge for your self.
These are only a few pictures I took, I will make another post later in the week to post more pictures.
And I should have more updates about my art next week! Until then have a fantastic week!!
