Wiesbaden in monochrom

To sketch outside my comfort zone is something i like. So when i forgot my watercolour box  last Saturday to meet with Urban Sketchers Rheinmain, it turned out to be a blessing. Sketching in  ballpoint pen is something i used to do a lot more, and i enjoy these simple sketches.

Like every month, we met up with Urban Sketchers Rheinmain. In February, we gathered at Landesmuseum to draw exhibits. After the museum closed, we sketched a typical Darmstadt backyard wit 1950s architecture. Then we continued on to the Krone, a badly lit pub and finished our sketching day with some astonishisngly cheap beer..

St. Stephan

On a rather warm Sunday in February, i rode my bike to a suburb of Mainz, Gonsenheim and stopped to sketch glimpses of the church towers. Usually one can barely see the church at all, because all the building have been constructed very close by. But that time, a garage had been demolished, thus offering new views.
