Life Drawing 

I love drawing from life. Several years ago I started going to figure drawing sessions quite frequently. The diversity of drawing sessions is very inspiring. Sessions and of course the incredible models from all over the world influence my work a lot. Life Drawing makes me a better drawer and painter - even when I am not painting humans. 

CHARCOAL
When starting life drawing, most people start to draw with willow charcoal, a soft and easy erasable charcoal type. Throughout my practice I learned about the different types and qualities of charcoal and to use them combined to achieve my results. I love deep, rich, fat compressed charcoal as well as very dry compressed charcoal best.

INK
Doing ink sketches a good source of light is important to provide  clear light and shadow. I started working in this style in 2020

MARKERS
I started using markers on New Years Eve 2021 during a 14h online life drawing marathon. The markers I used I got gifted from my man (Kristian Sundin, a concept artist) who used these markers 20 years ago. Still working! Of course by now I added to that selection.
