International Sketchcrawl #34


Six sketchers gathered at Citykonditoriet in central Stockholm yesterday,  for the 34th International Sketchcrawl – two new faces and a few “veterans”. We had a plan to move on to a museum, but decided to stay put – this café has lots of funny details to draw, and the lunch crowd tends to stay on for a while, so we had lots of opportunities to draw people.


Thank you Johanna, Charlotte, Anna, Pat and Riber for making this day a great one!

Top drawing: 20 x 18 cm, Namiki Falcon with Platinum Carbon black ink and watercolours on Arches Satinée 300 g watercolour paper.
Bottom drawing: 20 x 16 cm, technique as above but without the watercolours.

    Very nice drawings. I love when you leave some elements without painting in your drawings as for example the chairs in the foreground.

    Thank you very much!

  2. Looks terrific, Nina! I love the cafe scene…

    Stunning sketch! Love the color choices, great line. Love the way the light seems to be shining on the woman in the foreground because of the way you left the white in the paper. In other words, ditto Nuno.

    Wow, that´s me down in the left corner! (Känd från…. Ninas blogg! Måste vara bättre än känd från TV, eller??) Great sketch anyway, and thank you for organising Nina, it was a really nice day! I´ll try to get my pictures online today too…

    These look amazing! Every time I visit your site, I’m reminded why I want to get better at maintaining my own sketchbook.
