I got a comment from Bosartis who suggested that I continue with the pen/watercolour combination, like i did here. This is an attempt to do that – it’s not as succesful as the other one in my opinion. The colors are better in the former, and the lines more messy (which is a drawing like this seems like a quality) – I think that i’ll try to do another drawing with this method later in the day, and hopefully, it’ll be better.
Thanks to Bosartis for the comment!

It is difficult for me to be an art critic, especially when I enjoy abstract realism (somewhat of an oxymoron). I went through your whole list of drawings and I like Cityscape 7 (Drawing 86). It is somewhat abstract yet maintains a realism. I won’t compare you to other artists but it reminds me of another artist. This is a very good work. I enjoy colors so, of course, that caught my attention. I think the perspective is very good in this work. I did see some of your other drawings which lacked in perspective, but you noticed it also. I am following you now because it is a wonderful adventure to go through the artistic process with you, with your own comments. Maybe sometimes a bit hard on yourself but not too much. I will offer what suggestions i can but, as I said before, I don’t like critics. You are very talented, just some rough edges.
Hi, thanks a lot for your comment!
Self-criticism can be hard! – You’re your own worst critic, and sometimes it’s better to try and see the positive site – to not discourage oneself. On the other hand, I think it can be a good help, knowing what i want to improve. When i critique myself, the intention is not to call my own work bad – I try not to be too frustrated about bad drawings – but i want to be somewhat objective about what I’ve got going.. If I’m hard on myself, people often comment with encouragements trying to “cheer me up” – this is not the intention, I’d much prefer to get some suggestions on improvements !
I’ve been doing this blog for around two months, and I have surpassed 150 drawings – some of these I am really satisfied with (everything concidered) whereas others not so much. I think that the quantity helps me on the whole – a bad drawing here and there doesn’t matter too much in the ocean of sketches, and on the whole, even i can see improvement from the beginning to now..
I think that I’ll be switching to a sketchbook with watercolour-paper when i finish this one up, in about 3 weeks – so hopefully I’ll be doing a lot more color in the future! (Its getting a little grey leafing through my sketchbooks these days!)
Thanks again for commenting and following!
