Herring gull lunch
Sometimes sketching in a city can involve a whole lot of nature and wildlife experiences, and a sketching meetup in Stockholm yesterday turned into a little nature adventure. First, even before we started drawing, we had to wait under an awning for a surprise thunder storm with heavy showers to pass by. It was over pretty quickly, though, and we went down to sketch by the water at Bergsunds strand.
Right after drawing the boats above, I and my five fellow sketchers had to seek shelter again under a roof, to escape from another roaring thunder storm for about half an hour. It was quite spectacular, and we weren´t the only ones who were watching it in awe. I didn´t manage to sketch the weather, but the phone captured a quick proof:
I heard later that the heavy rain flooded a few underground stations and part of a department store in Stockholm.
Anyway, the rain and thunder subsided eventually, the sun came out, and we got back to sketching again.
