Nora - Sweden [RESULTS]

Postby annelito » Sat Jun 21, 2008 6:07 pm

Here are the results from the Swedish town Nora which was around +12 degrees, windy and with a few showers and a bit of sunshine. There were 5 of us sketching and enjoying the views of Nora (and later Pershyttan) for quite a few hours. This date is not the best of dates for us Swedish vikings as the 20th, was the Midsummer's eve ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Midsummer ) and that means the biggest celebration eve of all, in Sweden. But we managed to gather a small group and here are our results with sketches and photos, with a break in a café in Nora for a while. The pole with the leaves is the typical symbol for Midsummer which we decided to draw in Pershyttan which is a few minutes drive outside of Nora.

Enjoy!

It looks like you had a good group today, and lots of good sketching got done. I enjoyed the photos showing everyone busy at work, as well as the sketch of everyone working submitted by Christina.

Dear Swedish! Sorry you missed the Euro-Quarterfinals but you rock with your crawl around the clock .. errgh .. tree!
Is it a tree for midsummer-fest or still standing on from spring? Sorry for asking maybe obvious and therefore stupid questions ...

.. thanks for sharing your wonderful day around!

Dear Peter Pen,
Well, I don't think any of us crawlers cared much about the Euro-quarterfinals anyway... ;) Not our cup of tea so to speak.
Thanks for the comments!
And hey, there aren't any stupid questions! :)
The pole for Midsummer is not a tree from spring, it is usually chopped down (a real growing tree) and cleaned from brances and then dressed with leaves and flowers. Then it usually is left, a long time after Midsummer, getting more and more dry leaves, that is quite a sad sight to see=realizing the summer is almost over and the long winter is getting closer...

Yes, I must admitt me too likes Christinas 3rd, but whole impression is in the group.
I warned the world of your invasion last time, but no one would listen, now it is too late,
you've already conquored our hearts. :roll: Thanks for sharing the photos. Cheers, all! 8)

This time and last time, your sketches and photos are so interesting! I went back to look at them quite a few times. You have a really good group there, all the sketches are very accomplished and individual, and then the photos make such a good complement to them. When I see all these sketches and photos, it makes me want to come to Sweden and see Nora -- even though I never knew such a place existed before I saw your drawings and photos.

Your group was really busy. I love all the photos of everyone working and the area.

Christina - Lovely view of the river! I like your sketches of the other sketchcrawlers. Love the last building!

Tine - I wish your sketches were smaller. I couldn't see them because they were so large.

Anne - The two done in color are lovely!! Good ink sketch of the cup and the chair.

Annika - Super job! I love your close crops of the buildings.
