This was the last picture I framed for my exhibition. I’m not quite sure why I don’t like it as much as other recent paintings. Too dark maybe or the composition is too rigid. It will be interesting to see what visitors to the gallery think.
All my art is now framed for the opening at Galleri T this Saturday. Over 40 watercolours plus 20 figure drawings to see. Galleri T is on Österlånggatan 3, Stockholm, Sweden.
I just love this seascape sketch by John Constable.
I was very happy with the prominent position I got at this years watercolour exhibition at Väsby Konsthall. The opening was yesterday and it will run until the 15th of May.
Don’t forget my first solo exhibition next Saturday on the 23rd at Galleri T in Gamla Stan.

I tried something new yesterday and I was very happy with the result. I used a liner brush and W&N sepia watercolour paint. The poses were quickies ranging from 2, 3,4 and 5 minutes. I will be doing this again in the future, this is guaranteed 🙂
I bought an architects set of drawers, 15 in all to store my fast growing collection of watercolours and sketches. It was I challenge getting it home, I drive a VW Beetle and they are not famous for their storage abilities. Still, I managed to squeeze all 15 drawers into to car and the rest I put on the roof. I did get a few looks as I drove across the city in the evening rush hour.
