Lately I´ve been feeling a bit frustrated because of the cold – I can´t go out to draw! Swedish winter is not good for drawing. I draw inside instead, of course, at home or sometimes at work, but I still miss the freedom to go out and draw wherever I happen to be. I miss the inspiration you get from just walking around and looking at your surroundings.
Today, though, the temperature isn´t that bad, around 0°C, so I decided to go out and give it a try. Went into town and ended up outside a parking house on a back street.
I drew this one with graphite pencil, since you can trust those no matter how cold it is. I didn´t stay long, I got cold really fast, but I ´m happy I did this. I´m going to try it when it gets colder too. Why should temperature stop me from doing what I love? I´m sure you can hold a pencil with mittens on your hands!
