First sketches of 2014
With insulated pants on, and an updated warm seat (see photo below), I went out for my first sketching session of 2014 today. It was getting dark quickly, so I went for rather quick value drawings in ink and pencil. Came home with the side of my right (drawing) hand all messy with pencil dust. I still haven´t figured out how to use a pencil in my sketchbook without getting dirty.
Last thing I heard was that Kolingsborg, the oval building in the sketch below - a bit of a landmark in Stockholm - is going to be demolished this January, to begin the huge building project of a new Slussen. Don´t know how true this is, since a lot of building projects in Stockholm tend to get delayed by byreaucracy and politics, but I thought I´d better try to draw this place as much as I can before the mayhem begins.
Lots of wool in my sketching setup right now...
