With the head in the clouds


Me and my dear M have spent a few days in Värmland in Western Sweden, hanging out with the in-laws and generally having a good time. M went to the local flying club there, and while he went flying with one of their pilots, I stayed on the ground trying to capture their gliders and TMG (touring motor glider – I´ve learned a new abbreviation!) in my sketchbook.

These planes are a totally new sketching subject to me, but they have such beautiful shapes, all streamlined and white, and they´re a joy to draw. Lesson learned, though: bring a BIG sketchbook to fit the wing span of these planes on paper…
