Sketching at Gubbens trädgård café

We made a return visit to Gubbens trädgård café. Of course it started to rain just as we got there, but we managed to find seats beneath shelter so we could sketch.

I drew another wall display, this time a basket with flowers. The drawing turned out entirely too big, but I was too lazy to start over and scale it down. Instead I focused on the colouring and creating texture. The metal parts turned out fancy.

Then for fun, I just did a quick and messy sketch of the ice tea I had ordered.


Sketching at Strömparken

We’ve got lots of parks in my city, but one of the most beautiful is Strömparken. The city has made a stream for the salmon to procreate within and I drew part of this stream, with one of the small islands rising up out of it. I’m really happy with how this sketch turned out.

But it was a miracle that I finished. It kept starting to rain, only to stop when we decided to move, only to start raining again five minutes later. There was just no winning!

Sketching at Gubbens trädgård café

For my first meet up with Urban Sketchers during my vacation, we went to this lovely little outdoor café. They have lots of knickknacks that are tempting to sketch. We actually had to venture back and do a second session.

I sketched this display they had on the wall with metal birds and a half-dead flower. The straw things turned out particularly well, I think.

I didn’t technically fininish this during the session, because I got so tired. But I did the sketch there, then coloured it at home. The funniest looking geranium I’ve ever seen!

Sketching session at Brödernas Café

So, I lied in an earlier post. These were actually my first drawings of the year. I did them both during a sketching session at Brödernas café.

I was really rusty when I tried to draw my chai latte. There’s very things I’m happy with. I do like the straw, though. That’s the only part that turned out well.

Then I did this doodle of a lantern, which I think turned out rather well. I like the circular shape, the open space next to the lantern, and the organic feel of the leaves.
