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.

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!
