Hus

I travel to Sweden quite a lot, beautiful country! Great place to paint, sketch... houses are so beautiful, so here's one Swedish house, the second one is a very nice door I saw somewhere in Norway and a tiny Icelandic poney.
You can see here ( 1 2 3) some of the watercolours I've done there too.

Stef, these are so beautiful and, as always, so inspiring. Just love all your outdoor-sketches (and the indoor ones too).

Gorgeous little sketches. I like the horse and Swedish house.

Stef said...

Thank you very much Uli! very flattered. I'm glad you enjoy my sketches! I'll probably put them together in a book one day, the mix of watercolours and different techniques could be nice.

Smook said...

Hey Opi! je vais souvent en Suede car ma copine est Suedoise. Je fais toujours tout sur place, a part lorsqu'il fait tres froid, je finie la couleur a la maison.
Rene m'a dit, il est super content!

I like the variety different sketch work....I like the swedish house.....

Stef said...

Thank you very much Eren!
Edian, I saw on your blog that you are from Sevilla, I'm actually going there next month!
Gerald, glad you like the new header!
Alberto, thank you very much for popping by, I'm a big fan of your work! I try to be as quick as possible when I do those sketches, the watercolours take obviously more time, I'd say 1 hour, and sometimes I do some kind of studies, when I want to go into details, taking my time, enjoying the subject.
thank you very much Alina, Steve, bc3 and Bernerd!
