Tegning/drawing

At tegne har fascineret mig i den grad lige siden jeg var barn – croquis siden jeg prøvede det første gang. Croquis betyder korte, tegnede studier efter nøgen model. Jeg bliver helt opslugt af det og kan på den måde tegne i timevis. Jeg glemmer mig selv, og vågner først efter seancen med ondt over det hele, fordi jeg har koncentreret mig så meget. Det er et meget interessant, og et svært studie at skildre menneskets krop, og jeg bliver vel nærmest ”forelsket” i situationen, hvor jeg som kunstner tegner en model.

 

Jeg var kun 17 år, da jeg for alvor besluttede, at jeg ville være noget indenfor kunsten. Jeg havde været den bedste til at tegne siden jeg var helt lille i den by hvor jeg er vokset op. Det første jeg gjorde, var at melde mig til croquis på en tegneskole og den lå langt væk fra Køge hvor jeg boede helt i Charlottenlund. Her tegnede man og lavede akvareller efter en levende, nøgen model – og kors hvor var de andre elever dygtige… Jeg nærmest græd indeni da jeg gik hjem første dag og havde det sådan at jeg følte jeg lå under sæderne i toget på vej hjem selvom jeg sad ovenpå, og jeg lovede mig selv, at nok var de andre dygtigere ligenu, men så måtte jeg blive lige så god – så rankede jeg ryggen – beslutningen om at blive kunstner var taget. Den dag i dag bruger jeg stadig modeller til at male og tegne efter, og mennesket er stadig min store inspirationskilde. Jeg vil helst arbejde med noget levende – og ikke døde ting.

 

Så mange år senere kan det stadig fascinere mig, og bringe mig i et flow af smerte, glæde, kærlighed, ja alle de store følelser vælter op i mig, når jeg arbejder efter model. Her på denne side er samlet et udvalg af menneskeskildringer i tegning og akvarel. De er både lavet efter levende model i mit ateliér, til croquistimer, i naturen, på rejser, eller andre steder. Tegning og akvarel fylder ikke meget, så det er muligt at bringe det med sig, hvor som helst du opholder dig i verden – og det gør jeg så.

In english:

Drawing has fascinated me to the extent ever since I was a child - croquis since I tried it the first time as teen. Croquis means short, drawn studies after nude model. I get totally absorbed and can draw for hours. I forget myself, and wake up only after the seasons of evil all over because I have concentrated so much. It is a very interesting and a very hard study to depict the human body and I am almost "in love" with the situation in which I as artist draw a model.

 

I was only 17 years old when I seriously decided that I would be in the art. I had been the best to draw since I was very small child in the city where I grew up. The first thing I did was sign up for croquis at a drawing school and it was far from Køge where I lived completely in Charlottenlund. Here you painted and made watercolors after a living nude model - and cross where were the other students skilled ... I almost cried inside when I went home the first day and felt like I felt I was under the seats on the train on my way home even though I sat upstairs, and I promised myself that probably the other were much better now, but then I had to be just as well - so I ranked my back - the decision to become an artist was taken. Today, I still use models to paint and draw, and human is still my great source of inspiration. I'd rather work with some living - and not dead things.

 

So many years later, it can still fascinate me and bring me a flow of pain, joy, love, yes, all the big feelings get up in me when I work with models. Here on this page is a collection of human figures in drawing and watercolor. They are both made for living model in my studio, for croquisstudeo, in nature, traveling, or elsewhere. Drawing and watercolor does not fill much, so it's possible to bring it wherever you stay in the world - and I'll do that.
