War musum visit

With Stockholm Urban Sketchers

I like to think of myself as a pacifist so it was interesting to visit the Army Museum here in Stockholm with my Urban Sketcher friends back in February. The Swedish Cavaliers are in reality mannequins on stuffed pantomime horses so it was a challenge to convey a sense of brutality. I am still against war and hope conflicts can be housed in museums forever.

This watercolour was sketched in my Saunders Waterford block 28 x 19 cm, 300g, fine grain.
