The last of the winter sun

View from Gålö

I painted this last week. Spent a day on Gålö. So relaxing even if it was a little on the cold side.

Sketching my emotions Nr.6

Emotion Nr.6

I think this watercolour sketch represents my feelings pretty good. It’s March and summer is coming.

My first plein air for this year in 6 degrees


I managed my first plein air for this year. I visited Björnö Nature Reserve, which is east of Stockholm on Ingarö. The temperature almost reached 6 degrees! I had to use a gas burner to dry the painting, and yes, there is a burn mark. It’s becoming my signature. But seriously, it was so nice to get out and sketch. I had to trek for an hour to reach the spot I painted from but it was worth it.

These days I always start my week with a watercolour nude

Monday Nude

I think I have mentioned it before, I need a life drawing sketch or watercolour nude every Monday. My life drawing session that I run every Thursday needs to be publicised. The classes are turning out to be popular especially for those who live in smaller towns around Sweden. Covid-19 ended my physical classes last March but streaming via Zoom has turned out to be a very positive development.
If you would like to know more about Meldrum Kroki which streams every Thursday evening please join my Facebook group here.

Sketching my emotions. Don’t I have any happy ones?

Emotion nr.3

This is the 3rd emotion I have painted in this little series that has the potential to keep going for a while. Next week I will have to start painting my happier feelings – this little project could become very depressing otherwise.

It was warm enough to sketch, it feels so good


I sketched my first outdoor watercolour for 2021 yesterday. It was 8 degrees but sunny enough to stay warm. Damn it feels good to be outside sketching again.

A small sketch of an emotion

bad day

Yeap, we all have good and bad days. Thankfully I have more ups than downs.

A small sketch of the neighbourhood. It’s rough.


Crazy to think it was so cold just a short time ago. Most of the snow has melted now. I long to get out and start sketching for real. Soon, very soon.
