I'm old and boring - but have a good imagination and have seen the world. Originally from Finland, currently live in Scotland. I have a different career and do art as a hobby. Learning and duty, doubt and beauty.
Tired old joke ;)
Inktober 2020, day 11: "Disgusting". A license not to do the dishes thanks to art! :D
Although I got too carried away trying to capture the reflections to really capture the effect I was after. Also, even though I try to do a line drawing and ink it, my painterly sensibilities keep coming through. When I get a brush pen, I use it like a brush...
Inktober 2020, day 9: "Throw". The idea is kind of nicked from Avarre, an old friend on deviantart, who did a similar image many moons ago (https://www.deviantart.com/avarre/art/Syntax-Error-14749038). But hey, at least, I’m crediting ;)
Brushpens and posca markers on coloured A4. The whistle pig is up to something on my laptop! :O
Inktober 2020, Day 5.
Inktober, day 4: "Radio". Brush pens and posca markers on coloured A4
Inktober, day 3: "Bulky". Brush pens and posca markers on coloured A4
Inktober, day 2: "Wisp". Brush pens and posca markers on coloured A4. This is inspired by the wisps in Ultima rpgs that I used to play as a wee bairn. That’s where I learned the word "wisp". In fact, it’s pretty much the only association I still have. ;)
Inktober, day 1: "Fish". Brush pens and posca markers on coloured A4
Finished this today in urban sketching. View from my backyard with Edinburgh tenements and a back corner of Fountainbridge library. Mixed media on A4 (pencil, watercolour pencil, brush pen, posca markers, white ink and conte pastel). I always end up mixing lots of media these days :O
Another with Danna as Klimt’s Nuda Veritas. This time with charcoal and conte on brown A3.
Another Klimt-inspired pose from Wednesday’s reconfigure session. Danna Konkuntion posing as the Naked Truth. Brush pens on A3.
Wednesday’s Klimt-inspired Reconfigure with Topaz modelling as the girl with long hair
Here’s one more of the van Gogh -style self portraits. I wanted to try with colour. What can I say? I’m in lockdown. I have time :) Posca markers on coloured A3.
Four quick self-portraits, also show-casing my quarantine haircut. I did them yesterday as a part of Leith of School of Art’s Wake up and Draw challenge. The instructions were to do Van Gogh style drawings using the short very lively lines he is renowned for. The main image was 15 minutes on A3, the other three 5 mins each on A4. The images are in ascending order, so the first one should be at the bottom and the last one as the featured image.
A life drawing I did yesterday via zoom with Drawing Life in Glasgow. The pose and theme were modelled after Egon Schiele. Charcoal, brush pens and conte on brown A3.
Men fall victim to domestic violence as well. ManKind organised a fundraiser last night for victims of domestic violence in Scotland with over 30 models striking short poses. This includes the ones towards the end. Brush pen on A3.
The last six months in my life after breaking up with my partner of two years in November. Mixed media on A3. This is also my entry for the Diptych competition.
