First page


Started on my new-bound West Side Story sketchbook two days ago, at a café at Central station here in Stockholm. I did the drawings on location, painted when I got home.

12,5 x 15 cm, Micron pen and watercolours on Fabriano Artistico hot press paper (sketchbook page).

You have to be so brave to do the second and third portraits on the same page - but it pays off. Great first page.
