Saturday 13th- Sunday14th August

Saturday 13th August. Hagaparken, a big wooded park to the north of Stockholm, which in parts feels remarkably like an English park. To be fair, it does have a section landscaped to be like an English stately home park, but apart from that, there is deciduous woodland and not very much rock! A very pleasant place to sit on a hot Saturday afternoon. (Click on the image to see it larger)

Sunday 14th August. Skogskyrkog√•rden- the Woodland Cemetery, to the south of Stockholm. Nick and the engineers went on a tour, and I had a  peaceful hour and a half's drawing session. This is the Elm Grove, a shady (and windy) grove of trees on its own little hill which gives a clear view out over the rest of the cemetery.

An extra from the Woodland Cemetery, trying out watercolour shapes with drawing over the top.
