The office etc.

Due to a number of different difficulties (solar storms etc.), we had to cancel the official USK-meeting today.

However, we were still able to sketch from our various locations.

More images will arrive any time...perhaps.

At work!

It is slippery outside (everything has turned to ice), so we stayed inside in one of our lecture halls. This one has a nice view.

Today, due to the holiday, the USK-mission was to sketch anywhere we liked.
Here are todays' results!

At the hospital!

Urban sketching is not a disease. Not at all....
Anyway, we decided to sketch from our main hospital, because of the wonderful view from ögonmottagningen (i.e the ocular department). Well, isn't that ironic?

Here are today's results.

The nightmare before Christmas!

..is a great movie. Fortunately it has very little in common with our usk-session today, except from that today is the day before Christmas.

However, we went to Coffeehouse by George, a café just by the town square.

Here are today's sketches!




Merry Christmas!

Volvo BM-museum!

This tuesday, we went to Bolinder-Munktell museum.




As you all can see, this is the model I sketched:

"Lokomobil H8" anno 1903.

Elite Hotel Statt in Eskilstuna


The weather at the moment? About 2 or 3 degrees, i.e no outside sketching. We went to the restaurant/bar in our main hotel (Hotell Statt), called Ywonne Ryding after a girl who once played football in Hällbybrunn (located a few kilometres from the city area). Also, she was once married to Kjell Bergkvist, an actor who is world famous i most parts of Sweden. If I can rely on my sources (Wikipedia) they have two children. What else? Right, she was elected miss World around 1980 something. But that is not important right now....what is more important is that, a few years ago, the hotel building was destroyed by a violent fire (luckily, no one was injured!). But now, the building is restored and  it is actually a lot nicer than before. 
And the coffee is also much better!

Here are the sketches of the day!

And now!

Tuna Park!

This sunday, we were invited to Tuna Park (our main shopping mall, just outside the city centre) to do some sketching. (Thanks for the invitation and the fika!).

Here are the results!

New house!

We have a new building i town. Due to the cold weather we chose to sketch from inside our city library! And, of course, we had post-sketch-fika in the library café!

We have sketched this building earlier, but now it is more or less finished.
Here is Sven's sketch from February 11, 2014

And Sven's sketch from today:
