Low tide in shopping land

sergelgatan_140413

Sunday morning is a strange time to visit the busiest shopping streets in Stockholm. You don´t often see them this empty, it´s almost bearable to spend an hour here at this time.

This sketch is a first for two things: I´m trying out a new sketchbook, handbound by Russell Parry, and I am giving my brand new Daniel Smith watercolours a test run. I have been wanting to try DS colours for ages, but they have not been available in Sweden before, which makes them expensive to get hold of. But now they are here, in a shop near me, so no need to wait anymore.

17,5 x 19 cm, PITT artist pen and watercolours on Fabriano Artistico hot press watercolour paper in handbound Russell Parry sketchbook.
