    Ormīs sketchbook, updated August 28th

    Hi, I decided to post something here.

    I am interested in how others perceive what I do and I also think a public sketchbook could motivate me into more creations.
    I want to try more techniques and develop my skills.
    Help me please.

    Ormīs sketchbook, updated August 28th

    I had a good time when I made this one.
    I appreciate everyones view. Tell me what you think is lame etc.

    hi there!
    i like the texture and the color and i think it's a great starting point. it would be helpful if you could tell some more about the process and probably what's your goal. for example whether you started with the watercolor (i guess it is...), saw some forms in it and then drew the branches or whether you started with a pencil sketch, then did the color and drew over it (sorry if i don't recognize your steps right away, maybe to others it's obvious...) it just would be good to know whether you have a concept/ a plan or whether you just draw/paint and look where it gets you... i don't think it's lame at all, i just think it could use some refining. the drawing looks good, just go on with it. hmmm, don't know whether that was helpful at all, sorry, if not...

    looks good! Just wondering if you got anything that shows your knowledge of things/humans/objects/transport/landscape by reflecting them through your style, i can see you know and like leafs.

    Don't forget the public is made up of individuals who have different interests, to find out what they are, i suggest to browse through a couple of sketch books to get a general idea

    i really like the colors in this piece. it really does give me this calm feeling. I would love to see more work like this, do you do mostly abstract works, or do you tackle more realism as well? just curious.

    Maybe Iīll try to give the leaves slightly darker edge, but no, then I might lose the IMO nice nimbleness of them. got a tip of any other way of giving leaves more contrast to the surrounding?

    I never thought of myself as a "calming picture-person" before, thanks!

    Hi! the process:
    I was listening to a cd-recording with Max von Sydow reading "the old man and the sea" by Ernest Hemingway. He is the perfect reader for this book! I recommend it, but the version is in swedish:/

    I wanted to practise my simultaneous capacity so I started drawing this little Ivy. I made two drawings from same perspective. It was a lot of fun.
    Some day later, while on the phone, I accidently spilled some ink mixture(I think itīs part blue/purple watercolor, part old green washable pelikan ink if Iīm not mistaken) on the paper. A HAPPY ACCIDENT!
    Without thinking I started playing with a brush while talking, and after a while I got "into it".
    After everything was dry I started giving the plant some black contour.
    Iīm very happy with these colors, because it wouldnīt be my usual choice.

    I might eventually leave it and make something new instead, yeah I go with that I think. Maybe a little brushing on the leaves.

    Cold
    I might put up some more stuff when I feel I want advice or more point of view. The leaves were drawn from life, I tried to look closely. thanks!

    It seems like I have the power to calm. Sounds nice. I want to train my eye, and I mostly do studies from life nowadays. In graphite pen mostly. does this count for realism?

    Is this piece considered abstract? terms...(!)

    I want to implement more color in my stuff though, but itīs hard controlling the colors, I guess thatīs when I go "abstract" :/

    Thank you everyone for sharing your views!

    landscapes

    I have noticed I have trouble making believable landscapes. Depth, and making things look big(big like mountains for example) is hard stuff for me.
    Last night and this evening I had some practise.

    For you who asked for realism and humans:

    A self-portrait, took me quite a while. It looked more smooth before the scanning, but the values look like they do in the real pic.

    well, i like your landscapes and environments, depth problems, there are some here n there, but there nice to look at, good self portrait, you should go back and darken it in a bit lay in some darker tones. the animal sketches look good to. the cathedral looks good too, i especially like the first painted one, the other ones seem a bit hectic... and the perspective is a bit off 3rd, 4th, 5th, 7th, and 8th pics on the cathedral update... the 5th one lacks depth, and the other ones seem as if you change view points or lose track of your line of sight... some portions of the sketches dont line up with the line of sight, but theyre still real cool lookin. keep it up!
