Subway sketch

On the way home from work a quick sketch at every trainstation.

As the train stops for only about 30 to 60 seconds, the sketches are quite rough. But it´s a good way to learn to reduce the lines to the most important structures of the motive. And beeing forced to look and draw quickly, there is no time for perfection...

Usually people start moving nervously, as soon as they notice that they are being drawn (unless they are beeing diverted by reading, talking, etc.), which makes their pose an even more ephemeral affair.

New painting finished

I started this one just two days ago but with a detailed imagination in my head. Done for the wall of our sleepingroom (which is painted in some kind of olive green none colourful colour) it adds some relaxing light and deep blue colour to the palette.
