Sketches of Stockholm 

Two sketches from my Moleskin watercolour journal (not cotton paper and it shows). I plan to develop and paint these during the week.

Another quick sketch while on my way home from work. I wish I had designed the clouds a bit better. It was just one long cloud in reality but it would have been better if I had broken it up. I am satisfied otherwise, actually I quite like it!

Padjelanta

I just got back from trekking in Padjelanta National Park in the north of Sweden. Snow on the ground, a zillion mosquitoes in the air and many kilometers over rough terrain. Perfect, one of my most enjoyable holidays.
I hope to write and post more watercolours soon.

A small painting from my sketchbook. I usually do a quick watercolour to loosen up if I haven’t painted for a while.
