A couple of weeks ago, I went drawing with Stockholm urban sketchers in Hökarängen, a 50´s suburb south of Stockholm. It´s a charming place, feels like a suburb built with humans in mind back in the day. It´s also one of the friendlier places that I´ve sat down to draw in, because so many people stopped to talk for a minute or two. Had really nice discussions: talked about art in general, discussed whether my eyes have a better wide angle lens than the local photographer´s camera (he stopped by and took a few snapshots), compared drawing to making music (met a local musician), of course, commenting the weather (which was fantastic that day) and how difficult it is (or not) to paint watercolours.
Also, I watched a woman´s bicycle while she did a bit of grocery shopping – her lock had broken the day before – and she gave me a bag of chocolate dipped walnuts for it. Brought those to the nearest café and had a feast with my drawing buddies!
