Working on the little sparrow - part of my wip drawing with sunflower :)

Se detaljen



Mine tegninger har ofte mange detaljer. De er en vigtig del af min billed- verden, og jeg håber, du vil opdage de sprøde streger, pensel- strøgenes toner og de bearbejdede teksturer, når du ser på min kunst. Det betyder, at mine tegninger ikke kun er sofa-stykker (de billeder, der hænger over sofaen), men at de egner sig godt til at hænge fx. ved siden af sofaen, ved et spisebord, over en kommode, i en forgang, ved siden af siddepladser - altså steder, hvor du både kan se i dybden, samtidigt med at tegningerne også kan ses på afstand. Som sofa-stykker vil mine tegninger gøre sig godt ved at hænge flere sammen. Du kan mikse forskellige typer af motiver, sort/hvide med farver osv. Mere om ophængning kan du se på Tegnebutikken

Sunflower




My new drawing has 2 actors, a sunflower and a sparrow. The drawing are in graphite, and the one I am drawing on in the post Pencil Art Society from 0802.

The sunflower has been a real challenge - I have redrawn the seeds 3 times. Glad this paper can withstand all the erasing. The paper is Canson Bristol, I really enjoy working on it.

The background will be white, I like drawings with no background to make subjects stand out - not that I don't like backgrounds also ;)) - it is a choise to be made when composing.

I have a title for the drawing, but not 100 percent sure, so I'll publish when the drawing is finished :)

Review Papir // Paper

As promised in an earlier post, I wrote a review on my opinion and experince with different types of paper for drawing with graphite, ink and colored pencil (pastelpapers are not included in this test).

This is my personal test, but hopefully it can be a small guide for you if you want to try papers out.
Actually I think, looking at and touching paper will not really give you enough information about how the paper works when drawing on it. 2 papers that looks the same, are different to use pencils on.

The test i written in danish and in english (with italic font).
Here's a link to the pdf-file

Til kunstforeninger

Hvis du er medlem af eller repræsenterer en kunstforening, har det måske din interesse, at se mine tegninger udstillet i dit firma.

Jeg har udstillet flere steder, og vil altid gerne vise mine billeder frem. Jeg udstiller i foreninger, der tilbyder købsgaranti.

Du kan downloade min præsentationsfolder i pdf-format.

I øjeblikket kan jeg udstille dyre- og naturtegninger i sorthvid og farve. De fleste er indrammet og i størrelserne 30 x 40 cm til 40 x 50 cm.

Pencil Art Society

Jeg er igang med en ny blyantstegning. En solsikke er en vigtig del af kompositionen. Hvis tegningen bliver god, bliver den mit bidrag til PAS - PencilArtSociety- online konkurrence. En konkurrence med en jury. Denne konkurrence afholdes hvert andet år.

Drawing supplies - graphite

Notice: I made a small update on this info july 29.


I wanted to show my favorite supplies for graphite drawings.

I use 3 kind of graphite pencils - from left: Derwent Graphic, Staedtler Mars Lumographic and FaberCastell 9000. I use them all mixed together, but they are different. I mostly use grade 4B-2B-HB-2H.


  • Derwent being the more soft and dark pencil, point gets dull a bit faster. 
  • Staedtler goes down silky smoothly and I would place it between the other 2 brands in value using same grade, sharpens to a hard point. 
  • FaberCastell has the most hard point, but also smoothly application. The lightest value per grade.


Notice it is important that these pencils are the type mentioned, it is not any kind of Derwent, Staedtler, FCastell pencil. These are fine-art material.

Next I use mechanical pencils (5 shown here). I don't have a preferred brand, I use cheap as more expensives one. I use leads 0,3 to 0.7 mm and from 4H to 6B. I also use clutch pencils (not shown here) with 2 mm leads. While the mechanical pencils are always pointy the clutch pencils can be shaped to a flat end - and this will give you both sharp and a flat point :)

Erasers shown: 2 in a pen - Mono zero from Tombow and Tipp-ex.


  • Mono is the smallest and a wonderful eraser for very small areas. 
  • I sharpen the Tipp-ex to have a narrow ridge. Its a bit harder than the Mono.
  • I use Blu-tac (the blue ball in pic) to lightly dap graphite from a drawing, making things lighter or to remove any mess of graphite on the paper.
  • I then use a Staedtler white eraser for larger areas.
  • The FaberCastell white eraser has an edge - great for erasing in a slim line.


The stump and rubber-brush is for blending. Not in picture, but I sometimes use tissue.

The large brush on right hand is indispensable for removing small loose graphite parts on the paper.

At the bottom also an indispensable thing - my eletric sharpener. Its old and its a workhorse. It will sharpen graphite and colored pencils.

I also use a support to avoid my hands having contact with the paper. I use either a hard plasticplate where I put small felt-pads in each corner or I use a transparent paper.

My drawingpaper is placed on a masionite board thats placed on my drawingtable. The board is not soft, but still it is not as hard as the tabletop. It makes a difference. I work mostly with my table flat, but I can work at an angle too.

I am planning to write a review of the drawing papers I know of - but it might take some time to get it finished.

If you want to see my graphite drawings, they are in my galleries- sorted out in subject-groups Dogs-Cats-Wildlife etc.:

European dog serie


I don't think I posted this image of the European dogs serie before ?  When I am going back to drawing dogs, I thought of expanding that serie. Which do you like best: a full background or the white background?

Jeg har vist ikke postet dette foto af serien Europæiske hunde før? Når jeg kommer tilbage til at tegne flere hunde, tænker jeg på at udvide denne serie. Hvad synes du bedst om, en fuld baggrund eller hvid baggrund ?

West highland white terrier - wip


Jeg har gang i endnu en hund i akvarel, denne gang en west highland white terrier / Westie.
Jeg synes terrier-pels, er noget af det mest udfordrende i blyant, så nu er jeg spændt på, hvordan denne i akvarel arter sig.

Basset hund i akvarel


Så blev min basset hund i akvarel færdig. Pelsfarven i tricolor tog mange lag af akvarel. Ref: foto fra hundeudstilling.

Jeg elsker at tegne og male hunde, og jeg er hooked på, at lave mine kreationer tilgængelige for alle hundeelskere, så I har mulighed for at kunne vælge jeres yndlingsrace på forskellige attraktive produkter. Her produktfotos fra hhv. Doggyshop på Redbubble og  Doggyshop på Society6.

Pelican metal travelmug



Bring it anywhere keeping beverages hot or cold ❤

Pelican metal travelmug - my latest buy from Animalzoo - I think this could be a favorite of mine. It's real pretty print and nice size.

Here is how Society6 describes the metal mugs:
Talk about steely good looks. In addition to a 360-degree wraparound design, our metal travel mugs are crafted with lightweight stainless steel - so they're pretty much indestructible. Plus, they're double-walled to keep drinks hot (or cold), fit in almost any size cup holder and are easy to clean.

Carry-all pouch



Mini Carry-all pouch - here with the make-up kit :)

The quality is fine and its a handy size - at least when you only need smaller stuff in it. But it is avaliable in 3 sizes.
To be found on Animalzoo

Print allover Tee


My print allover Tee from Society6 arrived today. The image here is a norwegian buhund - actually my old dog - now in dog-heaven, bless her ❤.

These tshirts are pretty large, and in summer-thin fabric. I like the large print - and I didn't know they are printed on the back too.

Basset hund - wip



Jeg har gjort pænt fremskridt med basset hunden, og som du kan se nu, er denne hund i tricolor pelsfarver. 

Jeg har en del arbejde endnu, men så langt er det en fornøjelse at tegne og male basset hunden. I øvrigt en basset jeg fotograferede til en udstilling i Århus, for nogle år siden.

ENG:
I did quite a progress on the basset hound, and as you can see, a tricolor.

I have some work yet, but so far its a pleasure to draw and paint the dog. I took the reference pic. at a dogshow in Aarhus a couple of years ago.

Jeg vil gerne have flere realistisk tegnede farvemotiver til mine Doggyshops (se links t.v.) - og er startet på en ny basset hund i akvarel. Her har jeg gang i en af de små pensler :)

Tukan II - wip færdig


Så blev min Tukan II færdig.
Det har været en stor fordel at have monteret akvarelpapiret på en maleplade, der har været absolut ingen bulninger. Jeg har til gengæld haft en del udfordringer med papiret i forhold til løb af akvarel (eller rettere mangel på samme), samt løft af farve.
Både denne tukan og de øvrige 5 i Color Bird serien er malet på Fabriano Artistico. Men dette er NOT typen, de andre på HP. Jeg kan sagtens male på NOT, men for flere af disse fugle, bliver det HP typen igen.
Tukan II, serie: Color Birds. 40x50 cm.

Tukan II - wip

video

En lille snip video, hvor jeg maler tukanens kind. Den blev lidt for rød i første omgang, så jeg har lagt et par lag af akryl over, og så et tynd akvarellag her igen.
Tukan II kommer ind i min serie Color Birds, selv om der er lidt forskelle fra de 5 første: billedet er større (40x50 cm), malet på NOT akvarelpapir og monteret på plade, så bliver måske udstillet uden glas.
Derudover, er her hele fuglens krop med.

Tukan II - wip


Vi tager lige et nærbillede af min igangværende tukan.
Jeg har pænt med udfordringer med papiret, som nævnt i sidste indlæg. Men forhåbentlig får jeg det til at gå op i den sidste ende.
Jeg mangler stadig en del lag, før fjerdragten bliver mørk nok.

Udstilling lokalcenter Kildevang


I juni og juli udstiller jeg på Lokalcenter Kildevang i Mårslet. Jeg har medbragt Color birds, samt et par blomster og damer :)
Nu må jeg se, om nogen bliver begejstret nok til at ville have et billede med hjem ;)

Er du forbi, så kig ind. I øvrigt, er alle Århus kommunes lokalcenter-cafeer åbne for enhver, om det er til en frokost eller kaffe og kage :)

Tukan II - wip


Jeg er godt igang med akvarelfarver på tukanen.
Jeg har fået monteret et NOT (cold) ark akvarelpapir på malepladen, og må sande, at det arter sig noget anderledes end  HP papir. Jeg har arbejdet mest med NOT, men til denne Color bird serie, foretrækker jeg HP. Så næste fugl i serien bliver helt sikkert på den type.

Tukan II - wip

De første tynde lag er lidt nervepirrende at få malet. Når jeg er mere inde i processen erstattes det af en genkendelsens glæde og facination af akvarellens egenskaber. Der er ingen malen over, som med olie og akryl. Det er en spændende del at lære, som også koster uoprettelige fejl engang imellem. Tukan II. Serie: Color birds.

Ny Color Bird - Tukan II wip


En ny tukan i serien Color Birds er netop på vej på mit tegnebord. Jeg er igang med at definere fuglen i streg, og så skal der lag på lag af akvarel på.
For at undgå at akvarelpapiret bukler, har jeg opklæbet et ark på et canvasboard. Det kan så indrammes med eller uden glasramme.

Ginger - renewed



I painted the female "Ginger" last year, and even I liked her I also found something was missing. I needed to make some changes.
And now I did, I altered the background, she was given a feather, a negligee and a butterfly tatoo.

I find her updated version a lot more interesting, hope you like it :)


DK:
Jeg malede kvinden Ginger sidste år, men selv om jeg synes om hende, tænkte jeg også der manglede noget. Jeg måtte lave nogle ændringer.
Og det har jeg fået lavet nu. Jeg har ændret baggrunden, hun har fået en fjer, en negligé og en sommerfugle tatovering.

Jeg synes den opdaterede version er noget mere interessant, håber du kan lide det :)

Miss Flora - finished



Herover kan du se et par skud fra processen med at male Miss Flora, samt det færdige maleri.
Jeg er ret sikker på, at flere af miss Floras veninder har stillet sig i kø, så jeg kan godt klargøre endnu et lærred snart.
Med visse udfordringer var hun en fornøjelse at male.

Akrylmaleri, 60x60 cm.
