The weather is extremely grey in Stockholm right now, with a drizzling rain making it impossible to draw outside. I sat in a café yesterday, and the view out the windows was so dreary I drew the coffee cup instead. The coffee turned cold before I remembered to drink it, I was a bit caught up in the drawing...

It´s been an extremely gray day in Stockholm today, so I made a gray drawing out the window of a little café I had never been to before. I like the contrast between these two buildings, one new(ish) and very strict and one old with odd angles and windows.

Today was the 21st international sketchcrawl (check here if you haven´t heard of it before), and for the first time the Stockholm crawl had more than two participants. Yay! There were ten of us sketching at Kulturhuset, a huge building full of theaters, restaurants, libraries and other cultural activities, situated in the heart of the city. While we were sketching, a huge anti-war demonstration took place on the square below us, we had full view of the mass of people down there.
Most of the participants in today´s sketchcrawl were new acquaintances to me, and I´m so happy there are people in my own city that love sketching, just like me. Thank you guys, for making my day!
