In Uppsala

Hi everyone,
It´s about time to post something again. Last week I was the busy little bee driving around half Sweden for different commissions but I took time to make at least one sketch.
This is from Uppsala again. 4 hours drive from my home town. Uppsala has an old scholar atmosphere and I love the colours of the older buildings. 17th century colour scheme was quite bright and bold with a lot of ochre, yellow, pink and indian red. Sometimes even a smoky blue nuance. Here a view from beneath the cathedral. A lot of students on bike pass by me and through the portal.

Jag heter Craig Carbol, en kanadensare som var utbyte student in Uppsala flera flera ar tidigare (1993/94)..... I absolutely love your drawings of Uppsala!!!

I was just going through some of my old photos this christmas and have to say that part of my heart will always be in that city

Is there any way for me to preview more of them? I'd love to purchase a couple for my new condo in Edmonton.
