Down by the river

New policy- leaving work an hour early and spend the late afternoon out and about drawing.
Yesterday I headed off for Lidköping. Beautiful sceneries especially around the river Lidan.

Nice septemberweather

There has been this wonderful warm weather for the last few days- and I took the time after work to sit down outdoor and make a quick sketch.

Colleage at work

Pernilla working in her very swedish looking chair.

Hometown of Salvador Dali

During this years holiday I visited Cadaques in northern Spain. The town where Dali lived. After a exhausting walk in extreme heat we sat down by the beach and had a beer and some fritated octopus. Nice and relaxing and I made this sketch overlooking the view.

Piazza Navona and more

More pictures from old scetchbooks. This however is a couple of quite ambitious watercolors made in Rome in september 2003. This one is from turistique but otherwise nice Piazza Navona. The most significant memory from Rome ( except from the grandness ) was the amount of Chinese and Japanese tourists gathering really close around the embarrassed artist while working.

Before I visited Rome I had the idea that the wellknown sightings as Pantheon was located with a lot of space around. Enough to give a good overview over the building. In fact that is not at all the case. In addition to that- hundreds of people stood in my way. My solution for the day became to give up Pantheon itself a draw the square in front of it instead.

Last summer I visited Vienna with my gospelchoir. In my sparetime-which wasn´t vey long- I made I couple of drawings on watercolorpaper- and later colored them. I rather like Vienna- but there is nothing pittoresque about it. And I usually fall for the medeival narrow type of places.

An old one

I went through one of my big portfolios today and found a sketchbook from a trip to Tuscany, autumn 1999, That if I remember it correctly. This sketch seem to be from Volterra by the signature.
What I remember most vividly from the place is oddly enough the garage, carved out from under the old town in the cliff. Amazing.

In Cadaques, Spain

A blue scooter caught my eye. Parked in a narrow alley in the small town Cadaques by the Mediterranian sea. We walked through the town in the heat to sea the home of Salvador Dali.

First one out

Vacation is almost over- I will post some sketches I´ve made at home and on my vacation to France.
