Årsta partihallar

partihallarna

Waiting for an appointment this morning, I took the opportunity to do some drawing from the car in an area of Stockholm where I seldom set foot. Årsta partihallar is a rough busy wholesale area, where store owners get their fruit, fish, drinks and whatnot. Every corner here is inspiring to draw, with worn down buildings full of imperfections. A welcome contrast to the polished streets of the inner city.

13 x 13 cm, UniPin ink pen and watercolours in HandBook sketchbook.

    I love the combination of your smooth lines and almost-flat washes. It makes such a great texture on the page.

    ton style est vraiment reconnaissable, tu parviens à faire d’un endroit “simple” quelque chose que l’on voudrait voir et toujours avec une ambiance et des couleurs gaies. Bravo !

  4. Looks great Nina! I feel that run down or older sections of towns and cities carry much more character then new areas, wouldn’t you agree?
