Kristianstad, Sweden – RESULTS

Postby flevolaf » Sat Apr 11, 2009 8:31 pm

Hi all. My first crawl became a solo crawl. The weather here in Kristianstad was warm and sunny. In fact, after a couple of hours in the sun I went dizzy and had to buy myself a hat. The town was thick with people but in spite of that I spent most of the time running around looking for subjects. Typical beginner's behaviour I guess. Four loose sketches on a whole day is a bit meagre. Next time I hope there will be some more crawlers joining in.

Amazing perspective, light and shadow on the first one. I've never dared to draw such a subject!

Regards, m9fred

I like these, especially the couple eating ice cream -- they look incredulous that it's warm enough to be outside eating ice cream...

m9fred: for me perspective is struggle while light is luck. A few sketches have a luminous quality. Most don't. Especially b/w ink drawings can have white spaces that really shine. I would love to share a bottle of ink with an experienced artist while listening to his or hers explanation about how to take control over contrast, shading and light. Or perhaps there is a good book on the subject?

These drawings are engaging. Look forward to seeing more of your work.

Hi Kumi. The cannons are replicas marking one of the bastions in the old fortification line that once surronded the city. And the six square pillars of granite is a sculpture in one of the parks.

Great use of light and shade in these, it lends these images a certain sense of romance, especially the last two with those beautiful long shadows! The last two especially look like they could come out of an old children's storybook. I'm especially fond of the last one with the 2 kids.

Great sketches, I love the third one especially, with the pillars. Lots of space in that one!
Kul att du gjorde en solo-sketchcrawl, det har jag också gjort två gånger. Man tager vad man haver, liksom. :)

Tack Nina. Det går tydligen bra att köra solo. Men lite av grejen försvinner ju. Om ingen annan vill krypa med mig här nere kanske jag nästa gång ska ta mig upp till Stockholm.

Nice sketching; first and third have intriguing shapes and values which you've handled well.

Wonderful job on these!!! I had to laugh at you spending so much time looking for things to sketch. I've done about 5 of these, and still do the same thing. Thanks for sharing these!

You did a great job on the perspective - I love the depth you achieved in the first drawing. I like the couple eating ice cream too. That's probably what I would be doing if I were there - I love ice cream.
I too would love to have some tutoring in pen and ink.
