Östra Stranden, Halmstad


Another sketch from our trip to Halmstad (scroll sideways to see the whole thing). Halmstad is a true summer city with nice beaches along the coast, though the beach season hasn´t quite started het. We went to Östra stranden (“East beach”) to take a walk and I sat down to sketch for a while.


We picked some seashells (why is it you always have to do that on a beach? It´s not like you haven´t done it before, right?) but I had to add them to the drawing later – after about twentyfive minutes my hands were deep frozen, due to a harsh wind from the sea.

45 x 15 cm, pencil, grey Copic Multiliner SP and watercolours on Stillman & Birn alpha series sketchbook spread.
