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.


Drawing practice

I saw this picture of a very cute girl and I just had to sketch it. Drawn on Fabriano A4 paper with a 2b pencil.

Still waters

Like this watercolour, I have been quiet these last few weeks. I’ve been busy with other things, life hasn’t put enough hours into each day. I seem to be going through a bit of a grey period. All my watercolours have a desaturated look all of a sudden. I don’t mind, it’s just a period in my life.

I found these two YouTube videos of Edward Seago’s work. Very inspiring, I need to travel more! If you would like to learn more about the artist, click here.


Lunchtime watercolour

I am trying to paint everyday,  it doesn’t matter how good it is – the most important thing is just to do it. I’ve noticed that it takes days to get to that desired unconscious painting state if one has had a break for a week or more. A painting a day keeps mediocrity away! 🙂

Back to lunchtime sketching

I am back at work after my two artist weeks. Trying to get back into my watercolours. I had an in forced break because of my exhibition which was a success I thought. I’ve ticked that box so now I can move on and find new challenges.
