Engelberg, Switzerland [RESULTS]

Postby olkazavr » Tue Apr 14, 2009 1:06 pm

I did this SketchCrawl in Engelberg (mountain of Angels)
Image
View from mt. Brunni on the first one. Locals said that the monk, who founded monastery in this area, saw angels dancing on the mountain. Wikipedia says they were singing but I like the legend with the dance more: the peak looks like the perfect platform for dances. The snow still lies around but it's really warm and sunny.
Image
After the Easter market was finished students cleaned the area
Image
square and cafe area near hotel Bellevue full of young people with skis and snowboards
Image
a view from the town.
that was nice though I missed the opportunity to meet other crawlers in Berlin this time.

Your drawings have made it seem as though the air is so clean and clear on your mountain! A lovely sense of calm and peacefulness. Thanks for sharing!

What wonderful ink sketches!!! I agree that the legend of the angles dancing on the mountain is very appealing. Very nice work!!

Yes, great lines, and shadows and people. My favourite is the tree, but I also like the way you have drawn the people- you have captured their presence so crisply

Lovely sketches, your linework is excellent. I like how you can indicate a crowd of people with just a few lines.

Very nice and clean sketches! I like the shading, it really gives the impression of the sunny day.

Excellent!! they are so clean line drawings; simple yet have great ambiance :D It seems that there is no hesitation or misjudgment making line stroke.
