Wednesday 22nd June- a day of drawing in Tegnerlunden with Kim, Nina and Johanna.

The first one of the day- always the hardest.

We were talking about simplifying and reducing so this was my first experiment. Also helped by the discovery that the ink wasn't waterproof!

A giant statue of Strindberg, who lived around the corner. Now, obviously I never met him, but all the images I've seen of him suggest a somewhat scrawny, wiry man- in short, what you'd expect a tormented poet to look like. So this... is somewhat ridiculous!

The other statue of a famous author in this park- a much more modest sculpture of Astrid Lindgren. She looks like a benevolent angel, enfolding a whole collection of small characters in her wings.
