Yesterday was the last Sunday of April, which means sketching time with Urban sketchers Stockholm. In spite of rain, hail, sunshine, hail again, and then some rain, all in one and a half hour, 16 keen sketchers turned up at Stortorget in Gamla stan (Old town).
I discovered that fineliners don´t like raindrops. As soon as I ran the pen across a drop of water (or half frozen hail, for that matter), it stopped working for a while! Luckily I had three pens of the same nib size.
Here are a few of the brave sixteen, some with mittens, some with hats, all with a deep concentrated gaze across Stortorget.
