Копенгагенский вызов

[by Fred Lynch in Copenhagen, Denmark] Во время недавней поездки в Данию я попытался бросить вызов самому себе, чтобы делать наброски быстрее и с использованием более широкого спектра средств. Обычно я довольно последователен в своем подходе... и результате. Я долго рисую, меня привлекает свет и конкретика в моих работах. Я не тороплюсь. I [...]

People of Copenhagen and Baghdad meet in a crypt

[Guest Post by Zofia Zelazny in Copenhagen] What happens when you show up at an event you randomly noticed on the Facebook feed? I got the chance to meet childhood classmates in the atmosphere of fancy vernissage, and to view snapshots of Iraqi everyday street life, as well as experience Denmark’s only church with a graffiti […]

Flying Sketches

A few weeks ago I went to Copenhagen to meet my family. It was a nice weekend with perfect weather. I did some sketches that you can see on my blog omar-paint.blogspot.com The way back was a littte complicated. However it is funny how the perseption of an event has a lot to do with […]

A few days in Copenhagen

I went to Copenhagen to visit my brother. I usually visit him for Xmas. It is quite a different experience to be in Summer instead of Winter. Copenhagen is a beautiful city, and I love to see the streets full of people and wonderful motives to sketch. When I arrived in Copenhagen I took the […]

In Copenhagen with a sketchbook!

I had scarcely four days—really only 3 1/2—but it was a fun trip nevertheless! Wow, the food in Copenhagen is absolutely beyond delicious, by the way. For my tastes, it’s the best that is going on in Europe right now. Anyway, I didn’t just eat. I made sketches, too. Here are few of them: Isn’t […]

Traveling in Denmark

Denmark is made up of a half-isle and a collection of islands, which often makes traveling from one part of the country to another quite time consuming as you have to rely on bridges and ferries to get about. This month I went for a weekend in Copenhagen, visiting friends and family. Since I’m situated […]


I went for a 5 day visit to Copenhagen in mid-February, and found time to go for a few walks, snap some cameraphone-photos and do a little sketching in between the meetings and socialising.   The temperatures were freezing, despite most days yielding full sun, so sketching was again a strictly in-door activity. I had […]

Grundtvigskirke Copenhagen

Close to my brothers house in Bispepjerg is the Grundtvigskirke. The main facade is very impresive and resembles a church organ. The architect was Peder Vilhelm Jensen-Klint.


You know the feeling when you are in holidays with a lot of time to sketch but you don’t have a scanner arround to share your sketches? The drawings got accumulated till you are back into your enviroment with your beloved A3 scanner (yes, it was love at first sight). There is this need to […]

I would enjoy meeting the local talent. I wouldn’t want to leave this post without a sketch, so here’s one […]
