A better picture.

I ordered a new phone today. Hopefully the camera is fool-proof. Here is an improved photo of last weekend's Urbansketch.

Urban Sunday

Today I spent most of the day with my fellow Stockholm Urbansketchers. We sketched in Hökerängen,  an old 1940s suburb in the south of Stockholm.
Yes, the picture is out of focus, sorry about that.

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.

Edward Seago

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! :)

I forgot the sail in the reflection of this lunchtime watercolour so I had to paint it in afterwards. Annoying of course.

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.
