Wonderful city sketches Nina! Would you please some day post a step by step drawing: draft (if any), ink, and steps os watercolor? This would be a great "lesson" for all of us who admire your work!

You have so many beautiful little streets and shops to paint in Stockholm, specially in Gamla Stan... I visit it last winter and love it. But hard to paint outdoors in winter!

glömde säga; Precis till höger där ligger ju stans mysigaste café (Il Café) med gratis bredbandsuppkoppling. Men det vet du nog redan :-)

Nina,
Well done. I always find architectural subjects challenging, getting all the straight, angular lines in correct perspective. You seem to do this, as well as all your drawing more or less effortlessly!
Nice subdued color too.
I have Lexington Gray too,lovely color, but I use black more to get the full pen and wash look.
