Vienna, Austria [RESULTS]

Postby m9fred » Sun Oct 26, 2008 12:17 am

Weather wasn't fine on the first Sketchcrawl in Vienna, very cloudy sky, too cold for the season and a very unpleasant wind.
Paulo, John and I met at St.Stephan's in the early afternoon and we went to a place which was not so overcrouded. A few minutes later we began to sketch the oldest church in Vienna, St.Ruprecht's and the lovely old houses around.
The cold weather made us move to a pastry shop to warm up with coffee and hot chocolate after we have finished some sketches.
My first sketchcrawl was a very interesting experience for me and i'm glad that Paulo and John participated in spite of the weather.

John and me, we are newbie sketchers but Paulo is real artist and I admire his work, especially his skills to draw people. I'm looking forward to the next sketchcrawl, hoping Paulo and John will participate again.

m9fred -- to sad the weather was not the best this time. 10 out of 11 times it's better. So see you next time again ;)

Thank you for sharing Vienna insights -- you really surprised me with these pictures.

I just added John's sketches and replaced Paulo's by larger scans.
Thank you for your encouraging comments.

Drawing together with the group was funny for me and I liked it a lot.
I'm looking forward to enjoy the 21 sketchcrawl in Vienna as well.

Looks like you had a fun group. Too bad the weather wasn't too good. At least you didn't have pouring rain like we did in New Jersey.

Manfred - You do a great job on roof tiles and brickwork!! Nice!!! Great photos too!

Paulo - Nice work on the statue and all it's details!! Love your sketch of the other sketchers!!

John - Super job on the doorway!! Nice clean lines. Nice job on Paulo sketching and the steeple too.

Again, I would't know what to sketch first - when the place is too inspiring, makes sweet pains
however, see that you've managed to overcome that "problem" and make both sketches/photos
thank you for sharing them.
Cheers!
