Fantastic to be sailing again. 

I haven’t sailed all summer but now I am and it’s wonderful. The holiday season is over so the archipelago is quite empty of boats. No motor boats just a few sailing boats and most of them seem to be visiting from Europe. So it’s very peaceful. We have bought a new boat, not new exactly – it was built in 1975. So we are getting to know how everything works. Next week my wife returns to work but I intend to continue sailing as much of September I can. I want to sketch, paint and take reference photos. It’s going to be an experience.

This watercolour sketch was painted at our first stop on the trip, Gällnö is the name of the island, we stayed for a day then moved on.

  1. That sounds as good as the watercolor , colourful and expressive , negative painting in trunks a big success. Congratulations.

    1. Yes, I was happy with the negative painting too. My sketches recently haven’t been so successful, maybe they will improve this week!
