We are a few sketchers in Stockholm trying to meet up once a month to draw together, and last Sunday it was time again. We were happy to see some new sketchers joining in, since we have been very few before.
We chose Central station (or, as we write it in Swedish, “Centralstation”) in the city centre as our playground this time. As any big train station, it´s a place full of people, drama, big and small stories, anticipation and expectations, and lots of fun stuff to draw. Nice coffee is readily available everywhere too – a must for an afteroon of sketching, of course.
I tried to capture the whole central hall in my drawings, and not get too much into details (though the tiny versions of people were a lot of fun to draw). I had a lot of trouble with what to include and what to leave out here – because honestly, there are too many things happening in this place to get it all down on paper. I can see lots of things missing and things that I managed to get totally wrong in these drawings, but everyone who has seen them so far still say that this is definitely Central station, so I´m not too worried about the mistakes.
