I´m out drawing as much as I can before it gets too cold – and I try to draw as much as I can at Slussen before they tear it away. Today was a perfect autumn day, incredibly sunny and almost warm. But still cold enough for the Platinum Carbon ink to take forever to dry. I´m going to have to ditch my fountain pens during winter, I keep smearing ink with my drawing hand.

People were quite talkative and curious about what I was doing today, had some nice conversations with passers by. Otherwise people tend to be afraid to disturb me when I´m out sketching, in the corner of my eye I can often see them taking a peek at what I´m doing without coming too close.
