glasses - thanks! I have absolutely no idea what will expect me at Nerdrum's studio in Norway, all I know is it's more like a workshop, no real "classes" or school. He's not much of a teacher, but neither am I, so I can understand he'd rather paint and have some people around him to help, rather than explaining the same thing all the time XD No idea how many short term apprentices were/are/will be there, but I'm certainly not the first. I'm very much looking forward to it!
kidult, thank you saturation looks ok on my screen, but I'll keep it in mind.
Loathsome - haha XD
Here's some quick sketches done from life, at home!
My boyfriend was the model and Glen Vilppu the idol! XD
Times vary from 30 seconds to 10 minutes.
Thanks for looking :>

Some attempts at an oil painting from life, and charcoal drawings.
I'm in Norway right now, painting in Odd Nerdrum's studio, it's a quite cool place!
What you see here is a bunch of oil paint tubes belonging to the Maestro.
And here is a view of the studio - actually it's 3 different studios he paints in. Wish I had that much space! XD
And a bunch of new sketchbook pages, more to come.

Thank you, George and Fetsch
here's a lil update. Portrait of a co-student, while Odd Nerdrum was painting a portrait of her, amidst the glaring summer sun (That's why she is squinting). It's quite an experience to watch the Maestro paint.
New finished digital painting, it's the Revelation of John, from the last chapter of the New Testament...
And a bunch of new sketchbook pages, I really need to improve my figure drawings. (sorry for the bad photo quality - scanner wasn't working)
I often hear people saying that my figures lack anatomical definition. As if they were blow-up dolls, having no muscle or bone beneath.
They're right, of course, and I'm getting better... I think the critique also means that I've finally mastered the most basic human proportions. Learning the underlying structure is the obvious next step and challenge.

Fun with charcoal!
The paper looks old, but is "fake". I just made it look old and used, coloring it with tea.
Sketch painted in oils, from imagination. Should have given the top more space, but it's too late for that now, so nevermind. I'm still trying to gain better control of the medium.

Konstruktion - Thanks! There are currently 3 more students living here at the place, 2 of them leave soon. They're from USA, Norway, and Sweden.
Fillin' my sketchbook, one page at a time, copying from different sources (old paintings, old photos, magazines) or inventing stuff. Yay!
