Reykjavik, Iceland [RESULTS]

Post by erlingingi » Thu Jul 21, 2011 7:51 pm

Any sketchers wanna join me in Reykjavik on the 23rd? I was planning to start at Hresso at 1pm. Then perhaps venture outside and find some good spots to sketch in the downtown area, staying warm and sheltered from the wind. Please reply here if you are coming.

This time around attendance was up by a whopping 50% or from 2 to 3 people. :) We started sketching at cafe Hressó that also has an outdoor area. Then we ventured to a nearby square and enjoyed sun, sketching and suds. I was using graphite and GraphitAquarell.

I really like the loose washy effects; creates a nice mood. Great work. Thanks. :thumbup:

Great drawings. I really enjoyed seeing them. We started out as only 2 or 3 people, but yesterday in spite if foul weather we had 20 in Sydney. Your group will get larger also.

Very impressive combination of two contrasting techniques - making some compositions almost monumental.

Here´s my sketch.

Was struggling with glaring on my screen so it took me a long time to get the values right, next time I´ll be better prepared. Or better yet just use pen and paper :D

P.s. I think your fire hydrant is ace Erling.

Some great graphite wash studies Erlingingi! Drinking + drawing is always good fun :) Borkur, wow, would be great to see more of your works too, I can see the development of something very cool there. If I may ask, is that Painter or PS?
