Studies of Reality. By Naja Abelsen

Studies from both Greenland and Denmark, where I live. Many takes 4-5 hours to draw, love sitting outside and study! Just too seldom I do this training...some of the studies are done while having students; I draw 5-10 minutes, then guiding/walking round to the students draw 5-10 minutes and round again, very lovely working form!
