Cars and coolness

Saab 92 de luxe

Sometimes drawing is great in so many ways. Sweden has had a heat wave lately, it´s been 32°C every day for quite some time now, both in Stockholm and elsewhere. Anywhere you go, you sweat. Sitting in the shade doesn´t help much.

Visiting my in-laws, I found out there is a vehicle museum nearby. I thought I might as well do something useful in spite of the heat, so I went over there to draw some cars. Turns out the museum had a lovely temperature of 18°C inside! Sweet relief! So, apart from having a great time drawing some beautiful cars, I was cool and comfortable the whole afternoon. :)

Thanks to the nice people at Torsby fordonsmuseum, for letting me hang around drawing!
