Sorry I haven't posted anything for a while. This is partially due to vacation in Tenerife (wonderful wonderful wonderful to get some sun after all the snow and cold we have in Sweden now), but mostly I must admit I have been lazy. I promise to better my ways and post more frequently from now on (I have been drawing more or less every day, it's just I haven't been bothered to photograph and post my sketches to the blog).

Anyway, this is the view from our hotel room in Tenerife, and a part of the parapet and decoration on our balcony. I'm not very happy with how the palm tree turned out. I think it's mostly because I finished it when I didn't have a view of the actual tree, so it feels kind of... flat.

I had imagined drawing and painting on the balcony every evening of our vacation after the kids had fallen asleep, but then I started reading this book instead, and then I was caught. So not a lot of drawing, but I enjoyed the book, so never mind.


  1. I can totally relate to meaning to draw or paint every day on vacation and then getting stuck in a book.... that happens to me every time we go away. I hardly ever find time to read a whole book at home, so when we go on vacation I always seem to get into one and drawing goes by the wayside.... I always intend to be good about drawing every day, but then the paints sit unused in the bag the whole time!

  2. I can relate, too. I always take my sketchbook when I go, but I rarely use it. Too busy visiting with friends or reading a good book! I think your palm tree looks fine. The sketches are great!

  3. That is a really cool looking palm tree!

  4. Superfint! Jag älskar dina skissböcker - slå vad om att de kommer att bli mycket värda en dat? ;)
