We sometimes meet up in the middle of the week with Urban Sketchers and sketch at this local café. I took inspiration from a shelf and sketched it half as it looked, half as I imagine. I’m really happy with the texture of the bottle and the texture of the plate, even if the right part of the drawing looks a bit funky.

Another still life drawing. This time I’ve taken the motif from my desk, where I have quite to display of ornaments. This is of a fake-book, a lantern and a couple of candle-holders that are right in the middle of the display.
This took quite some time, but it turned out awesome. I’m really, really happy with the inking and the shadowing. If everything could turn out this well I would be one happy artist!

I turn to my living room at times for inspiration, and after my mother’s birthday this lovely composition happened to catch my eye.
I liked how the boxes where sticking out from the table, combined with the lantern and vase of roses. I wanted to practice hatching and crosshatching, so I felt that ink pens were a natural choice. And I was still really happy with my purchase and wanted to use them as much as I could. I’m really satisfied with how this turned out.
