Przewalski horse studies-Munich zoo Hellabrunn

I spent few hours in the zoo today in the morning and despite the restless horses and the heat I managed to do a couple of studies.


Munich zoo-New quick studies

Attached, some quick studies I did during a drawing course in Munich zoo recently.





Common swift watercolour

Attached this time a commissioned watercolour I did lately and shows common swifts flying over the city of Berlin. There is also the preparatory sketch in b/w to be seen. I did some changes since the client wanted the birds to be smaller.



New human portraits from life

Attached this time some portraits I did from life yesterday in the afternoon among with other artists, in Hofgarten-Munich .
We had just 15 minutes to finish every portrait again , but I had to leave earlier, and managed to sketch just 5 portraits..




Horse portrait in stages

A Horse portrait in watercolours I did recently while teaching an adult evening class.Attaached also some shots taken by a student and show the progress of the watercolour from the rough drawing to the finished image



More Java Banteng studies from Munich zoo

Attached a  more detailed life study of a Banteng cow painted in gouache today. I have to do more of these in the future..And..a cow with a calf  plus gesture sketches drawn using sepia fineliners




Javan Banteng studies-Hellabrunn zoo

I spent several hours in the zoo hoping to do a proper watercolour of a Javan Banteng but the only I managed to get is the one of the calf and some half finished sketches..I don`t know why but the cows were exceptionally restless today...




Hellabrunn zoo-quick studies

From my visit to the zoo with a good friend yesterday morning. Javan Bantengs, and quick bird studies


New quick human portraits

Attached this time several portraits I did from life yesterday in the afternoon among with other artists, in Hofgarten-Munich .
We had just 15 minutes to finish every portrait and the time pressure has forced everyone to his limits.. The event has been organized by Andreas Skrzypnik for Drawing from life-Munich https://www.facebook.com/groups/1989676834613576/. Terrific idea!








Grandpa`s portraits

My Grandpa has been always posed patiently for me in the past, and I did some acceptable portraits over the years. He is going to reach his 103! years soon, and I wanted to share studies from the past as well the most detailed portrait I did of him in acrylics (including progress) few years ago..







Riesa city-Saxony-life studies

I`m just back from a short family holiday trip to Riesa city( close to Dresden). Despite the extreme hot weather I managed to go outside and do some fieldwork as  well a more detailed architectural study of the Trinitatis church , the most characteristic of the city.
The old cemetery provided a rich bird life with golden orioles, Green woodpeckers, a lot of  Wood pigeons and a variety of songbirds like Common redstart. Brown hares were also common there and Red kites flew above the city all the time..
