Ship ahoy!

Museum sketches from Stockholm. First some of the haunting facial reconstructions of bodies found in the C17th Vasa shipwreck (and the skulls they worked off) at the wonderful Vasa Museum. Then looking down from an upper viewing platform on galleries of visitors looking at the ship itself; the ship is huge, ornate and complete, an amazing artefact from another age. Finally, as many model boats as I could sketch with bamboo dip-pen in 30 minutes at the Maritime Museum. They have many many hundreds more on display, so I hope to return
