A few sketches from the local library in Båstad!

You might wonder where I managed to find this sunny spot in the middle of the winter! Well in fact, this is a quick warm up study of a famous landscape artist called William Merritt Chase. Studies like these are very valuable because I get a glimpse in to how a master solved similar problems that I am faced with when I go out painting.

This is quite small, only 20 cmx17 cm. It did the job though, and I am now better equipped for the summertime!

I love cafesketching, and since Båstad has very few cafes open during the winter, I thought Id head over to the library. Not very many people there either! I managed to capture a few unsuspectfulls.
