More from Stockholm - a fellow 'Watercolourer'

I visited lots of little galleries during my short trip to Stockholm but this one took my breath away.  Karl Marten's beautiful watercolour paintings hung around the Konst & Folk Gallery, consisting entirely of bird studies of all different species and size. Personally, I loved the smaller paintings ( there were also huge paintings of owls and eagles ) because they involved fewer brush strokes and washes of colour, showing Marten's ease at which he captured the birds' form.
