Sketching at Moderna Muséet


As a break from sketching around Slussen in the cold, I met with a few fellow sketchers at Moderna Museet (Museum of Modern Art) in Stockholm today. We had a great day, chatting away while both drawing the view out the restaurant windows and sketching people in the lobby.

Check out the results of the other sketchers too: Anna, David and Marie.

    Great sketches as always! I love the way your portraits kind of blend in to one another, although you claim you have no plan regarding the composition to start with! And the amount of detail you manage to accomplish in that short period of time! Just amazing!

  2. A little looser than usual Nina. Must be the mitten influence! Works for me.

    Provade att rita med vantar på häromdagen. Hur svårt som helst :-)
    Det kändes som att fingrarna var bortdomnade och det gick inte att styra dem. Det blev en spretig skiss …

    • Ja, det är klurigt att vänja sig vid klumpiga vantar när man ritar. Och jag måste ha jättetjocka (flera lager) vantar, jag blir så lätt för kall om fingrarna.

  5. Lovely water scene! I love the pink reflection of the building in the small area of calm water. I am Swedish heritage but never traveled to Sweden so your sketches give me a feel for Sweden.

    Great watercolor sketch! Every time I see one of your sketches it makes me want to visit Sweden (even the ones in the dead of winter that you have to use mittens to draw!). :)
