The Storm P. Museum

I’ve drawn very little since december. I really need to get back drawing daily again!

So today I had a great Creative Friday; First I vent to the Stom P. Museum – a fantastic place for some InkTober inspiration. Afterwards I sat at a café across the street and drew the museum. It was amazing weather and I realised how much I missed sitting outside drawing with a good cup of coffee.

Summer drawings

Anna Anchers (out) house in Skagen

Managed to keep up the daily drawing all summer – or rather 7 drawings a week, there were a fair few catch up days with more than one drawing. No theme, just a weird mixture of drawings.

Mostly used a very cheap sketchbook which has a big drawback; it can’t take even a light wash of watercolour. Some of the “urban sketching” drawings could really have done with a splash of colour. Need to find some sketchbooks with smooth white paper good for fountain pen, pencil and watercolour.

Holiday drawings from Lisbon

Going to Lisbon on summer holiday this year I was planing to do a lot of drawing and dipping my toes into watercolours and urban sketching. I even got myself a new watercolour sketchbook and added 2 new colours to my watercolour set.

There is still no drawings in my watercolour sketchbook, but I did make daily ink drawings in a super cheap 21×21 sketchbook I normally use for doodling. I also made a few pencil sketches in a very small sketchbook I got in a goody bag at a party arranged by my 4 year old niece. I only did one small watercolour and that ended up being used as a postcard.

To make up for my missing watercolour drawings I picked up the book “Lisboa por/by Urban Sketchers” – 120 drawings by 45 sketchers. I knew about the book before we went to Lisbon. It was not easy to find, the only place I found the book was in the gift shop at the Berardo Museum. It’s a great little book, much better souvenir then anything you can find in a souvenir shop.

Super cool city/area. Back in Denmark now, the temperature 15-20 degrees lower and it’s raining buckets – I guess todays drawing won’t be Urban Sketching with watercolour either…
