Archipelago


I went on a short work related trip on a cruise ship across the Baltic sea a few days ago, and managed to capture a glimpse of the Stockholm archipelago in my sketchbook. It was extremely windy, my drawing tools almost blew away, but the view from the sun deck of this enormous ship was amazing, so I had to give it a try.

12.5 x 15 cm, Lamy Safari with Noodler´s Lexington Gray ink and watercolours on Fabriano Artistico hot press paper.

Lovely - glad you persevered, it is worth it! I am drawn to the darker water in the distance -- really gives a sense of great depth!

I love your work and only wish to someday come close to painting like this. The lines so confident and the application of colors intense yet delicate. Just beautiful!
