Sketches from Visby
Summer is almost over. I´ve had several weeks of vacation and complete freedom. For two weeks I took part in an archeological excavation on Gotland ( the big island just east of our mainland). Last week I spent some days at another one, one hour from here. It´s an interest of mine that has been slumbering since I was 20. Back then I seriously considered the proffession. Well, I´m pleased with my choice to take it up as an amateur, it has been a truly fulfilling experience with new friends and new knowledge. But I also got some days for myself and my sketching. One day I spent in medieval town Visby, where I drew furiously for hours almost without a break. Here are a couple of them.
