Urban Sketching in zero degrees.

We were a group of seven or eight Urban Sketchers on top of Katarina Elevator last Sunday. It was zero degrees, my water did not freeze but it didn’t dry very well either. After half an hour it got too cool for us and we retreated to a nearby café where we could warm up again. It was only then that my watercolour sketch dried.

  1. You are a brave boy, don´t know you are able to paint under these circunstances. The sky and the cold atmosphere are perfect, the colors thougth are almost complementary work , a very good sketch under not so good circumstances.
