Shopping malls are not my favorite subject to sketch, but sometimes it´s a good challenge to draw stuff that is just a bit… boring. I have to overcome a certain resistance inside before I can really dive into lines and colours with my usual interest. It´s probably character building. ;)

20 x 20 cm, Namiki Falcon with Platinum Carbon ink and watercolours, on Arches cold press watercolour paper – not sure about the weight, and not sure I like it…

  1. Nina, you can make anything look good… even a boring mall! This looks almost space age!

    Once drawn it’s not boring anymore. The artist shows us mundane things from a different viewpoint.

  3. Hi Nina.
    May I ask you which color did you use for that light blue sky?

  4. Isa says:

    le rendu des espaces vitrés est vraiment réussi. La lumière est particulière dans ce dessin ce qui le rend très joli. Bravo Nina.

  5. I enjoy looking at you drawings.
    I see you are using a Pilot Falcon pen.
    May I ask is it a Fine or Extra Fine?

    I want to start urban drawing and will be buying a Falcon BUT I can’t decide on the F or EF.
    Thanks for your help.

    Thank you very much,
