Canadian impressionists exhibition in Munich

There is a very interesting exhibition about the Canadian impressionists in Munich and it`s really worth a visit! I spent there a couple of hours with a good friend today and I must say I have to go back! Attached, the only sketch I managed to finish today, a portrait of Jean Baptiste Cholette painted by Marc-Aurele de Foy Suzor-Cote, one of the leading Canadian impressionists. I used a Staedtler ball point pen to do it. Here is the Link to the exhibition: https://www.kunsthalle-muc.de/en/exhibition/details/canada/

European bison bull study. Various fineliners & pens have been used to sketch it on toned paper. Attached also, a series of images showing the development of the drawing, changing tones and shape everytime I was adding a new layer.











European mole cricket study

European mole cricket, life study. An unusual subject for me....A friend of mine found this impressive insect in his garden and brought it to me. I`ve used a magnifying glass to study it and let it then free. The painted image is three times the size of the original . Attached also an other study of a mole cricket I`ve painted from a dead specimen back in 1993
