Stockholm's town hall minus the best part.

The best image of Stockholm's town hall is the reflection of the building on the water. So this painting was doomed to fail before I even started as I hadn't left room for the water. Still, I used it as an exercise and I'm happy with what I learned. I used masking fluid for the first time, inspired I guess by Lars Lerin. Learning one brush-stroke at a time, that's what it's all about!

  1. Don t know why,but I prefer your figure works,although there are nothing in this one wong. Maybe I find in them more energy and freedom

    1. I agree with you, I prefer life drawing too.
