It's time to start 2016!

Now that we've all finished off the last of the Christmas leftovers, the chocolates, pralines, confectionery, and had a well deserved rest, let's get stuff done! If you paint, don't throw out all those empty praline boxes you received for Christmas. They make great mixing palettes. :) 

'Museum & Draw' in London  

One of my resolutions for this new and fresh year: I will visit our wonderful museums more regularly and practise live drawing. For us artists, it's important to exercise our ability to observe closely, and nothing will teach this better than putting things to paper. Not from a photo, but objects in front of us, which is more difficult.

And because these things are far more fun with others, I invite you to meet up with me, for a casual meet & draw in the British Museum in London on Sunday! 

I will make this a regular thing, aiming for once a month, place and times will vary. So, let's meet up and socialise. It will be completely free (the British Museum is free of charge) and informal, no matter your skills, just bring your sketchbooks, a flask of tea/coffee, your favourite pencils or pens, maybe a cushion to sit on, and you are sorted!

'Museum & Draw' will take place at the British Museum on Sunday, 17th January 2016 and encourages participants to spend 10 to 30 minutes (or more) really looking at objects through drawing them. 

This is our first Museum & Draw of the year and we meet up in Room 69/70, which is on the upper floor. I will be there from around 11:00.
Both rooms take a look at the public and private lives of the ancient Greeks and Romans, the displays show a diverse variety of objects from furniture, toys, mythology, armour, farming, and much more... I thought this could be a great starting point for us to choose objects to sketch. Of course, everyone can venture out and draw any object they fancy, once there! 

Hope to see some of you there!! :heart: 
I will be there from about 11:00 to 17:00, just pop by if you like and join in.

Artist | Traditional Art
United Kingdom
I studied graphic design and Illustration in Freiburg/Germany, now I'm based in the United Kingdom where I work as a freelance graphic designer/illustrator and photographer. I have always been inspired by nature itself, as well as fantasy and fiction literature, movies and comics. I illustrate and paint mostly in traditional media; mainly acrylic and pencil, sometimes oil, as well as digital in Photoshop or Illustrator.

I hope you like my artwork, any comments are warmly welcome, please don't be offended if I can't always find the time to answer.

you have great GREAT skills in observing nature, I am impressed to a level SPEECHLESS!!!!!! because it's connected with outstanding sense of beauty, I can't stop looking at "Red squirrel" and "Grackle" artworks it's INCREDIBLY BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!!! The way you connect your observation with creativity and imagination, without ignorance to the smallest details and real look of creatures

omg it really is something WOW

I am so sorry I am somehow.. idk,... I can't wait to see what more you will draw. Your lvl is seemingly incerasing and I am so happy about differences between each of your works, exposing your exploring nature.
Good luck at your artistic journey!!!!!!!!!
