Paimpol

This is watercolour I did in the old streets of Paimpol, Brittany. I come here every year and I never get tired of the place. Panted on the 17th of August, 23 x 31 cm on Arches rough.

I ordered a new phone today. Hopefully the camera is fool-proof. Here is an improved photo of last weekend’s Urbansketch.
I spent most of the day with my fellow Stockholm Urbansketchers. We sketched in Hökerängen,  an old 1940’s suburb in the south of Stockholm.

Urban winter sketch

I sat in my car outside the local sailing club here in the suburbs of Stockholm. The boats are out of the water for the winter, red anchor buoys are the only evidence that summer exists.

This was sketched this week too.

Waiting for a train

A little sketch I did on the way to work this week. I wait at Söderstation in Stockholm for my local train most mornings. I’m quite happy to just miss the train because this gives me ten minutes to do a sketch. I then finish the drawing while aboard the train.
