Sketching at Gubbens trädgård café

For my first meet up with Urban Sketchers during my vacation, we went to this lovely little outdoor café. They have lots of knickknacks that are tempting to sketch. We actually had to venture back and do a second session.

I sketched this display they had on the wall with metal birds and a half-dead flower. The straw things turned out particularly well, I think.

I didn’t technically fininish this during the session, because I got so tired. But I did the sketch there, then coloured it at home. The funniest looking geranium I’ve ever seen!

Sketching session at Brödernas Café

So, I lied in an earlier post. These were actually my first drawings of the year. I did them both during a sketching session at Brödernas café.

I was really rusty when I tried to draw my chai latte. There’s very things I’m happy with. I do like the straw, though. That’s the only part that turned out well.

Then I did this doodle of a lantern, which I think turned out rather well. I like the circular shape, the open space next to the lantern, and the organic feel of the leaves.

Sketch: Gamla Linköping

We carpooled to the neighbour town to sketch their old town. It was freezing, so I spent the first hour just touristing before I forced myself to sit down and get some sketching done. It was a first for me to draw with gloves on and I think that’s why the sketch ended up so lopsided. This was a charming pavillion belonging to one of the cafés, and I just had to colour because I loved the combination of green and red.

Drawing: Woman

I drew this at the same occasion as Kupolen, but it’s drawn freely from imagination. Originally it was supposed to be just an ink pen drawing, but one of the other members suggested I colour it and I did when I got home. It turned out rather nice. I’m starting to like doing shadowing with ink pen and then colour it with promarkers. It creates a rather fetching look.
