Fishing huts


At the Southern end of Norrbyskär, there is a group of fishing huts, dating from the sawmill era. They are huddled up so tightly together, that walking around among them, you feel like you are walking into someone´s private home. But it is a nice spot to draw, so different from the rest of the island, where the workers´ homes stand in straight lines, at exact intervals.

Wish I had had time to do some more sketches here, but I drew this on my last day on the island for this summer, so I guess that will have to wait until next year…

    I like. I like. This one seems to be a little looser, little less detailed.
    Very beautiful none the less.

    • Thanks a lot, Joel. Yes it is a bit looser, partly because the view lends itself well to that, and partly because I was sitting on a floating dock to draw, it was bobbing on the waves all the time… ;)

    Cet endroit à l’air si paisible, parfait pour se reposer et méditer … joli dessin, malgré les conditions de travail ! ;)

  3. Hello Nina,

    I wish to meet you and take your Interview – to know more about and artist’s life and the history behind. Though, I an emerging writer, I would be highly obliged if I get this opportunity. I also want to tell you that I do sketching but I haven’t acquired professional training on this. It is one of my hobby. Please, tell me where and how can I meet you. And also if you can share contact details, e-mail or number.
    Waiting for you reply.

    Thank You!

    • Hey there,
      my email address is available in the sidebar of this blog, top right. Send me a message there about this instead, it’s easier for me to answer you that way.
