Brittany

I produced a final painting of this scene from Paimpol in Brittany today. The watercolour looks a lot better in reality, I wish I could take professional photographs but I just can’t.

Back in town

Stockholm

I am back in Stockholm so a painting of the city hall seemed like a natural choice of subject. Arches 26 x 36 cm.
