Gamla stan (Old town) in Stockholm is a bit of a challenge to sketch. Apart from your sketch always ending up looking like one of the zillion touristic postcards that are sold everywhere in Gamla stan, it is usually hard to find somewhere to sit comfortably for a longer stretch of time, because the streets are so narrow and often crowded with people. But if you take a little detour from the main streets, into some small alley, you may suddenly find yourself in a place like this. Gåstorget (Goose square) is a super small square, and it was empty and quiet the other day, and even provided a bench, a bit of shelter from the wind, and some interesting angles to draw.
