My first plein air for this year in 6 degrees

Björnö

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.

Sketching with friends

It was so nice to go sketching with my Urban Sketcher friends last weekend. We visited the Natural History Museum here in Stockholm. I painted this in very dim light, luckily I had a little reading light with me.
