The name of the square is called Stortorget, the big square. Not much imagination was used in giving it a name.
Anyway, I am trying to find a way of painting it. I have used a typical tourist picture as reference and I have tried to make it interesting from a watercolour point of view. It’s a sketch, so it has lots of faults but I think I am moving in the right direction, even if it is painfully slow.
Looking at it now, I find it is a pity I followed the bright colours of the reference photo, it would have better if the colours were more dampened in tone. Yeah, yeah, the journey of improvement continues…

I like it, it´s very dificult reach this intensity in color and tone using watercolor, you´ve achieve the essence and this is the real goal.
Now that I look at this watercolour sketch again I kind of regret publishing it. It’s just not very good. I should try again!
