Time Away From Home, Vacations & Holidays, Norway by Mia

Hello everyone!
I'm Mia and I live in Finland.
I started drawing the end of last year, after a long long break. In January I joined an art course called "starting Art course" and today was the last meeting. So, i'm very excited about this group, thank you very much for accepting me to join! I went through almost all the postings and I have to say that all of you have very good and inspiring works!

I love to do sketches and recently I have also enjoyed painting.

I'm looking forward to see more your inspiring works, challenge myself and see my own improving with you! :)

First I have to say sorry about the quality, my scanner should upgrade to the new one.
Anyway, we traveled to Norway in summer 2010 on motorcycle. It was amazing holiday!
I took a picture of beautiful little waterfall and today I made this quick sketch of it (challenging because landscapes and detailed things are very difficult to me. But actually it was very pleasurable to do!).

  6. Lovely to meet you Mia, and to see your beautiful detailed sketch. I love the distance you have achieved between the biker and the background, with the rider more definite. Such expertise! I look forward to seeing more of your artwork.

  9. Nice drawing. Are you going to color it? Welcome to the group. My grandfather came from Oslo, Norway, and my grandmother from Sweden, so I am 50% scandinavian. Glad to meet you.
