Sketchbook Practice

It is (almost) a week ago since I started my third year at Aberystwyth University, it is a bit scary to be in my final year knowing I have an exhibition coming up in May, but it is also really exciting. I feel like I have to do my absolute best and enjoy my last year as a student in this town.

In this post, I am going to show you some of my sketches from this summer. I bought a really nice and small sketchbook in Lisbon that I can bring with me anywhere, it definitely makes it easier to draw when I am out. At the moment I am practicing to draw with pen and paint with watercolours, both are techniques I am not very good at yet, but I would love to be!

Later I will write a bit about the museums I have been to this summer, in US, Lisbon, and France.

Fishing and Sketching

Yesterday, I went fishing at the sea in Porsgrunn. While my dad and boyfriend (+ Kiwi the dog) were catching dinner, I had my setchbook and sat quietly drawing both them and the nature. Here are some pictures from yesterday and a few sketches from an earlier trip to Machynllet:

Old Works of Art (Portraits)

Here are some of my older artworks, hope you enjoy!

This is my first oil painting ever made, and I did it in a painting course in Porgrunn (Norway) held by the amazing artist Marit Saxegaard. I attended this weekend course in 2012, and really enjoyed it!
