It was a perfectly sunny day, and I stod at the terrace in the garden of the castle of Uppsala looking down on at the Botanic garden. I painted this picture while interested tourists came up to look while I was working. Among other, there was a busload of African people among who one asked me if I was a student. I said, yes, because I am learning all the time. It took me one and a half hour to paint. Unfortunately, when I was done, and as the wind was coming on strong, the easel turned over just as I had removed the painting from it. The painting remained undamaged though, but I got a load of Ultramarine on my cellphone.
