The street of Stuguskär


A bit more unfinished sketch of “our street” at Norrbyskär. I was playing around with the long shadows across the street, they are so beautiful in the evening.

Approx. 28 x 28 cm, pencil and watercolours on Langton watercolour paper.

    This blue shadows orchestrate the whole composition!

    Absolutely stunning!! What that blue does to this sketch is unbelievable!! Just takes your breath away. And I would not call it “unfinished!”

    • Thanks a lot, Peggy! Well, unfinished or not… I just know that there are things in it that I know I wanted to work some more on when I was painting it – a few shadows that I wanted deeper, the trees in the middle were not quite as I wanted them – but after a while the light changed so much, that I just decided to stop. Otherwise I would be making half of the sketch up. ;)

    The beautiful blue theme and limited palate makes your painting very soothing and harmonious. Looks like a beautiful summer day.

  5. This is one of those images that makes you take an involuntary deep breath when you see them, in a subconscious desire to arrest the moment and somehow jump the screen and go for a walk inside.
    It is absolutely beautiful, and brings to mind summer evenings from my childhood.

    This is just serene and beautiful. I want to be there.
