Urban Sketching

Hi guys and gals,


today i want to give you an update on my latest works. In case you follow my page regularly, feel free to contact me. I would really like to know who is lurking around on here :). Even if its just the regular troll wanting to mess around.


I have been attending the urban sketching courses here in Oldenburg and we went to the train station and Schirrmann's the local youth hostel which has some interesting architecture.

Station












This is a little sketch of our Train Station in Oldenburg. I really messed up the people in this picture. Usually i am able to draw people better than this, but i added them very quickly at the very end of the process. A Mistake i will not make again to add something too quickly just because i think i have to... :)









Youth Hostel Schirrmann's

















Picture of my Point of view









Here you can see the Youth hostel. What i saw and what i drew.. It is a very crazy building and not as easy to draw as you would imagine. One could think: Well its cubic.. just lines and you are done, but getting the proportions right and the linework is one mean son of a gun. I also added some crazy curvy lines just for the fun of it.


I will try to attend these courses more regularly from now on, as i want to progress with my drawing skills as much as i can. It always feels easier when you draw together with other people. Drawing can make me feel a little lonely sometimes.






























This is a little sketch i drew in the restaurant. I will also attend another drawing class next month in our local vhs (Volkshochschule). That will make a lot of fun and i am really looking forward to that.


So long dear (not forever) unknown reader..


Yours,


Matze
