Halmstad

I do drive too, but this is my fav distribution of work when traveling – my dear M driving while I tend to the drawing. Somebody¬īs gotta do it, right? ūüėČ

We took a mini vacation in Halmstad on the west coast this weekend. The weather was cold-ish but sunny there, while incredibly bad in Stockholm, so it seems we picked the right weekend to go.

I spent about an hour sketching Stora Torg (Big Square) in Halmstad the next day. The city center of Halmstad is really pretty, with lots of old buildings (that church over there is the oldest, from the 1400s). I would have loved to do more sketches, but we had a lot of relaxing to do too, so…

Quite a few people stopped for a chat while I was drawing, and one lady suddenly stood right in front of me and spread her arms out in a dramatic pose, asking “”Will I look ok like this?”. Gotta love the Halmstad dwellers and their sense of humour. : )
