Drawing in bars. Meeting friends at Thanners, a local institution in my hometown. It feels like nothing ever changes in that place, but in a good way- same crowd, same owners, same shabby furniture and kitschy decoration as ten years ago.
Recently visited a friend in Munich. The museums i wanted to visit were all closed, so we went for a drink. Or some.
Sobering up at 4 am by consuming a very tasty Schnitzel.
I´m reposting my first post to Urban sketchers, from last month, with two additional winter sketches.
It´s winter, which means it´s not exactly sketching season in Germany
and I haven´t been drawing much. I leave for work when it´s still dark,
and when I come home, it´s dark again, and of course, it´s terribly cold
outside. So I drew these views from various windows of my appartment.
These are drawn in square sketchbook with grey paper that i hadn´t used
before. It´s nice to use a darker paper to play around with negative
space- but it seems the only thing i can draw in it are desaturated
It´s March now and you´d think spring might be coming along, but it´s been snowing again.
There is a beautiful hiking trail along the Rhine, called Rheinsteig, that runs 320 km from Wiesbaden to Bonn (or the other way round). I only hiked the first 80 km, walking through vineyards and villages, and getting no sketching done except these two- Schloß Vollrads in Johannisberg and a glimpse of half timbered houses in Rüdesheim.
