On Queen street

I love september. These last couple of days the sun has been shining and I don´t intend to brag but the nordic light is fantastic. ( Maybe it´s a compensation for those winter months when there is none at all :-) )Today when I took a walk during my lunch hour everything seemed so crisp and clear and I wished I had brought my camera. But at least I managed to draw something, not anything special, just a little part from the city centre.

Hi Christina
I really love the look of your pictures.
I was wondering: What is your process? Do you do ink drawings and scan them to colour in Photoshop? How do you get such a clean line from the scan?

Hi Christina-great sketches here, it's nice to have an illustrated tour of Sweden!

Hi Jo,
You was quite accurate about my process. I use an inkpen and then I basically just scan it. If there are clean lines I guess they come from the drawing itself. And the coloring is made in photoshop. I use a Wacom tablet, one of the bigger ones, which helps a lot.
Thank you for commenting

yes, this is great, i love the bike and the autumnal leaves. Wish i were in scandinavia sometimes (but california is ok, and beer is cheaper here)

Hi Pete,
I wouldn´t mind California one bit. I bet it´s warmer and sunnier and that is what makes life easy.
