Saltsjöbanan revisited

I went drawing at Slussen with Urban sketchers Stockholm today. Unfortunately, the weather was not on our side, the rain was pouring down at noon. But no matter how worn down and half deconstructed Slussen gets, it still provides roof over your head for sketching, so we were ok.

I was surprised to see that the tracks at Saltsjöbanan were already removed – a railroad station without rails is a very strange view. I decided to sit down on the former tracks and do a remake of sorts, of this drawing from 2014:

Then, on my way home, I couldn´t help stopping by at another place I´ve drawn before. Another take on the Northern entrance to Blå bodarna:

And an earlier version from 2013, when the place was still in use (but already far from it´s former glory):

Top drawing: 21 x 15 cm, Blå bodarna from today: 12 x 14 cm, both UniPin fineliners and watercolours in Stillman & Birn alpha series sketchbook.
