We were only two participants at the 41st sketchcrawl in Stockholm this Saturday, would have been great to have more company, but me and David Meldrum had a good time anyway. The view from the top floor of Stadsmuseet (the City Museum) in Stockholm was our first stop, with Slussen beneath our feet (which suited me fine, of course), but I had severe problems finding any focus at all in this sketch, it turned out a bit messy. On the other hand, Slussen is a bit messy, so…
After that, the museum café sounded like a good idea, and for once, I actually drew with pencil. A mechanical pencil at that! Wish I had had some softer leads for it, the sketch is a bit bleak. But it felt really good to do a serious perspective exercise, should probably do that a bit more often – with of without pencil.
