There is a taxidermy collection in my town, and I went to see it for the first time last Sunday. It was very fascinating but some of the items rather belonged in a cabinet of curiosities.
Made me feel too queasy to complete a proper sketch (Scroll all the way down to see it).
I left again after half an hour of being stared in the neck by human skeletons.

However, I can recommend it for sketch outings as the admission is free. One can sit quite undisturbed and sketch. Just remember to bring your own small folding stool.

Opening hours are 11 am to 5 pm on Sundays only.

Flower Bath

My poor orchid and succulents were so dry I had to give them a very long bath.
Well, I sketched them for long enough while listening to/watching the first episode of Suits and then the bath ended up being three hours overall.
I will drain the water now and put everything back to where it belongs :-).

My S8 commute

Two sketches from my commute on the S8 train today. 
When the sun is not out, everything seems so grey...

Sverige 2014

Back from Sweden. I realize I find sketching people much more interesting than drawing buildings. Also, it was very cold - sitting outside drawing buildings is something I'd rather save up for summer. 

Last Sunday, I met some of the Stockholm sketchers for a quick sketch (about 45 min) at the central train station. Next time I will need to stay for the whole thing :-)


Thank you, Anna and Przemek for a lovely week of holidays! And IKEA, of course.
