Vienna, Austria [RESULTS]

Post by m9fred » Sun Jul 12, 2009 11:27 pm

It was a nice and almost sunny day on our sketchcrawl in Vienna. We met at the nearest subwaystation to Reichsbrücke and after a short walk we decided to draw at the right shore of river Danube.

The bridge has two levels, one for cars and the other one for pedestrians and bicyclists.
For more information: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reichsbr%C3%BCcke
Due to very heavy rains in the last weeks in Austria and Germany the waterlevel of river Danube is currently very high and larger ships barely can pass the bridges.

After our first sketches we went over the bridge to Donauinsel, a popular local recreation and fetsival venue. Its an isle in the river, 21km in lenght and max. 200m wide, intended as flood protection.
More Information: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Donauinsel

On Donauinsel we sketched a very curious object: A lighthouse in a city far away from the sea!
This Lighthouse was part of the stage design of the "Bregenz Festival" in 1989 and after some years beneath the "Technisches Museum Wien" the lighthouse was moved to the Donauinsel in 1997. There the lighthouse is part of the so called "Sunken City", a recreation area with restaurants, vis-à-vis the Vienna Internal Centre.
We all had much fun this day and finished our sketchcrawl as the wind got uncomfortable strong.

What pleasant sketches and what a fun idea to turn a flood defence into a pleasure island - great thinking!

I enjoyed those photos as well as all sketches. Seems it has nice location to sketch around. What a beautiful place :D

I like both pencil drawing and the watercolor. Those clouds give nice ambiance.

Love the site under the bridge very much.

Your line drawings are so clean and limited coloring look so good! I especially like the bridge one.
