SouthGreenland, Greenland ( RESULTS )

Post by ninnagreenland » Sat Nov 21, 2009 11:54 pm

Hello sketcherspeople :wave:

I am participating alone from Greenland. This is my first sketchCrawl, I found about this yesterday.
We hadn't any snow yesterday, so I was hoping we had today, and this morning I woke up and it had been snowing :D

I began pretty late. This is some sketchings from our small village, (Brattahlid). The weather was cold, I was freezing, but had a lot of fun sketching around :D

This is me, after having tea and bisquits inside the house I sketch.

I was going towards the reconstructions of Erik The Reds Longhouse...

This one I draw from inside the public school (I have a key), coz it was too cold to be drawing outdoor at that point, since the sun was setting. I never managed to go and sketch the reconstructions. Maybe next time I will.
Image

The yellow house next to me, is the one I was sitting on (the stairs) and draw my first sketch. I had a loooot of fun, even though I was all by myself :)
My aquarell (St. Peters.-pans) kept freezing while I was still painting, but I managed, I just have to put some more water.

I'm already looking forward to participate again next time. :wave:

Have a nice day: From Greenland, ~Ninna

Great! Lovely sketches and good dedication! I was getting cheesed off with a little rain, but that's good going. :clap:

Hi snowangel,

Thank you so much for participating and sharing your sketches and notes of Brattahlid. You had a productive day!
I can't wait for you to share more from Greenland (no pressure :wink: )

Hello Snowangel,
nice sketches, while looking at them I wanted to be there in Greenland myself. It reminds me at my year in finland, winter was also terribly cold, a lot of snow, long darkness, but I loved it. Our day here in Salzburg was pretty warm for November and we had beautiful sunshine.
Greetings from the South,

Great sketches - I really like the houses. Thanks for sharing your sketchcrawl in the snowy north - it looks so very cold and your watercolours froze!!!!

What time did it start to dark there ??

Nice to see so many people have replied :D

I started to draw around 2.pm and got home around 4.pm, by then it was getting dark. It was fully dark in ½5 - 5.pm.

I could have started earlier, but it was foggy and grey and more cold (no sunshine) in the morning. So I waited.

I will most definetly participate again next time. :) I had a really great time yesterday. <3 <3 <3

Great sketches!
Each pieces of painting looks like a page of children's picture book.
I like them! :)

Hi Ninna,

lovely sketches - I really like the bits of colour in the fairly white/snowy areas ! And it must have been really cold - I have spent vacation in the Yukon in winter and would never have dreamed of going out to draw something - whimpy german :oops: ; we did not even sketch outside this time because it "only" had about 10-15 degrees celsius (PLUS) outside...

Looking forward to the next sketchcrawl and more impressions from Greenland - Thanks for sharing !

Greetings from Munich,
KarinH
