22 july, the city park

Probably the hottest day this year....

Today, we went to the city park in Eskilstuna.
Here are today's sketches!

Rich man, poor man!

Rich man, poor man was a tv-series a grew up with. My favorite character was that of Nick Nolte (a very young Nick Nolte, by the way). Well, all is forgotten now, Nick.

Today, Sven and Björn went to Tunafors fabriker (The Factories of Tunafors).This old and beautiful building is being reconstructed at the moment. Many years ago this was a knife factory, among other things. In a few months or so, the building will contain a number of really nice apartments (for those who are rich enough to afford them...).

However, it was free of charge to sketch this beautiful building located close to Eskilstunaån (the Eskilstuna River). A very nice place during summer time.

Power to the people!

This tuesday Sven and Björn went to "värmeverket", i.e a power plant just outside the city centre, a bit like in Springfield (the Simpson version)t. However, the weather is superb at the moment (about 30 degrees Celsius), so we had to find our sketching location in the shadow. 

The rest of the team ant to Skåne, Can Picafort and Torshälla! See below!

Here are today's sketches!

The Munktell area!

This tuesday, Sven and Björn (the rest of the team are on vacation outside town, except from Karl who of course attended from his home in Skåne!) went to the Munktell area. Many years ago this was a typical industrial area and Volvo BM among others was located here. Nowadays, the buildings have been restored, but are used for other purposes. This is maybe the most interesting part of Eskilstuna.

Well, here are today's sketches!

Well, Rothoff is world famous here in Eskilstuna. You'll have to google him, to know him.

At the south station!

Rather cold today.

Well, södra station (The South station) is a restaurant/pub close to the old town in Eskilstuna.
At the moment, it is a lot of construction work going on in the area, but that didn´t stop USK Eskilstuna! Today, Anna, Julia, Mia, Sven and Björn attended the meeting on location. Karl made his sketch in Lund (in the south of Sweden).
