lightpad, since I love to work in the sofa infront of the tv late in the evening I needed one that had shaper light and that was easy to lay on my lap. Tomorrow and thursday will be full studio days and I feel so happy!

The flowers that I put under some books months ago are now dried and flat. Some of them even have mould on. The colours are still fantastic though.

Weekend is over again. Even though it was nice weather outside today we decided to stay in, just drawing and playing. Sometimes the sun takes my strenght and I´m not much of a sunchaser. Right now I have alot of things to draw and I am happy that I´m starting to find the expression I am looking for. So looking forward to go to the tudio tomorrow afternoon.
Next week I will teach a summerclass for teenagers, it´s about drawing and illustration. First lesson will be to draw animals and work with their caracter. It´s been many years since I teached kids, it will be intereting to see the diffrence from my ordinary classes.

Right now I´m trying to focus on "white is a colour" when I´m drawing. As you can see in the old drawing above my intentions are to work with white as a colour but at the end the paper is filled and there is no space to breathe. What I really mean is that I have a problem to STOP. Treating the paper as a colour is one of the methods I will be test to be able to stop at a point where the drawing still is interesting instead of overdone. I will also use my scanner, draw small pieces and then put things togather in photoshop. And then there is the scale issue. I usually draw everything in the same scale. Now I´m working on different sizes of paper and with different pens, just to prevent to end up with everything in the same scale.
I will show you tomorrow, the ligts was so bad so the photos are to dark to post.
So: white is a colour, white is a colour.

I grew up in a small town with lawns everywhere and lakes nearby, the woods around the corner and the bicycle or by foot when transport was needed. People knew eachother and it was very safe. I always thought my kids would grew up at a place like that. During summertime I miss the cuntryside and the smalltown feeling, and it makes me think about: what if we should move. what if?
