Friday 6th May

Yesterday I borrowed a bike from the Citybike scheme and spent the afternoon cycling around Djurgården and sketching. Djurgården is one of the islands in central Stockholm and quite a lot of it -for the Londoners reading this- resembles Richmond Park. It's full of amazing old trees, especially oak, lime and beech, which are really interesting to draw. It wasn't very warm, but if you sat in the sun it was alright to sit still long enough to do a drawing. I also learned that carrying a jar of ink in a rucksack can be a messy business!
