Drawing of my local neighbourhood in Akalla, Sweden. It’s winter and snow is everywhere. I do my exercises walking around this area and it gives me a chance to find some great spots to draw. In this drawing there’s a small hill in the background that paragliders use on the occasional sunny day here in Sweden. And occasionally I powerwalk up it for some extra hard walking too. I must say it’s hard drawing in this climate. Your hands almost drop off in the cold. It’s done in a black pen called a Zig Photo Signature. I really approach this type of drawing firstly to get to know the landscape, so it’s pretty raw. To tune into the landscape’s energy is the goal. Drawing forces you to slow down and chill out a bit. Literally here in Sweden!
Cezanne, you see, is a sort of God of painting.
