Hamburg, Germany [RESULTS]

Post by silgoem » Sat Feb 27, 2010 6:48 am

A cold and wet winter-day here in Hamburg so I went with an indoor location for my solo-sketchcrawl and spent some time at the natural history museum. Here are the results:

You're maybe 9 or 10 hours behind Sydney and you've posted first.Congratulations! I have been home a couple of hours and still sitting with my feet up. Haven't scanned my drawings yet.
Yours are wonderful strong strong drawings. I love them. We have been drawing at the museum recently too, so I can treally appreciate them.

@quirkyartist

Thanks a bunch. I love drawing at museums, especially anything that's related to natural history so I had lots of fun with these.
And the reason for my early posting is not that I'm really productive or anything (I wish) but because my sleep-cycle is pretty much screwed since I'm working nights at the moment. So yeah it's 8 am and I haven't slept yet :roll:

After waiting for five years finally wonderful Hamburg Sketchers joined me SketchCrawling. Thanks to Sebastian who really does a great job on connecting people drawing many times! Thanks mate!

We went down to MUSEUM FÜR KUNST UND GEWERBE HAMBURG. Meike, Iris, Sebastian, Chris and later on Steven joined us. I had to leave unfortunately :( http://www.mkg-hamburg.de/mkg.php/de/home/

A German classic music competition took place thorughout the whole museum. So we had musicians practicing on old and own instruments (some are displayed there anyways), now they tried to prolongue or even get their first chance to lend very old violines and so on ... Beethoven, Grieg, Strawinksy ... so a lot of waiting and practicing (young) talented people to enjoy and draw.

above ... only second(s)-long "poses"

I hope you don't mind showing this single drawing this size, too. It's a one-pager though, but I fell in love with this Japanese sculpture, who wants to make me come back again. I have to re-do it again and again. Blotching it out black and deeper. It's hands are so weired, not talking about it's thumbs.

Looking forward to see the (still?) sketching,eating and crawling group!

@ Thorsten

Ich hab ein bisschen geschummelt und bin schon am Freitag Zeichnen gegangen, weil ich Samstag nicht konnte, deswegen war ich so früh dran :D (Die Naturkundesammlung macht tatsächlich ja erst um 11Uhr auf, das hätte also schonmal nicht sein können)

Wie war denn das MKG? Als ich das letzte mal vor ein paar Wochen da war, waren so viele Austellungen geschlossen zwecks Sanierung, nix mit Mode, Mittelalter, Druckgrafik oder Buchkunst. Sehr schade :(

Schöne Skizzen auf jeden Fall, besonders die Drachenstatue aus der Japanabteilung.

@snowangel, eyes and Maki
Thanks for your feedback, glad that you like my bunch of sketches.

Those first sketches with the shadows are awesome, so confident and they leap out of the page :D

Another fan of Thorsten's dragon :D

These are superb! I love your use of line and shadow in the first posted sketches, and the way you cropped your compositions, combined with the handwritten notes, make me feel like I'm flipping through an archaeologist's notebook. :thumbup:
