Frankfurt am Main, Germany [RESULTS]

Postby silent snail » Sun Aug 01, 2010 2:07 pm

The weather was beautiful. Thank God, because it had rained for a week. However, because of some festivals in the city, the streets are very, very crowded. It wasn't easy for me to sketch things, while there was a lof of people walking around, pointing at me and giving comments. It was the first time, I sketched with someone at such crowded places.
Locations:

On the roof of the department store Kaufhof

By the Goethe's house

And now, the sketches:

I love your work! The comment about the cell phone made me smile. I have refused to buy one, because I don't want to be kept at the end of a leash. :D

Here I am, at the end of my holydays, ready to post my results!

This is just to introduce my day: I lost my flight early in the morning, and I seriously risked to miss the appointment with Thao Mai...luckily me and my friend have been able to catch a train, and I could meet her!

The journey from Berlin to Frankfurt on the DB train has been long, and there I've started my 28th sketchrcawl (hoping this is not OffTopic!):

* The stations where we stopped with the direct train
Image

*A man sitting right in front of me
Image

* Another couple
Image

*A woman who was eating an icecream
Image

[color=#BF4000]Then, finally, in Frankfurt!


* Commerzbank skyscraper
Image

* A woman on the top of the shopping center where we were
Image

* Another view from Galeria's rooftop (Katharinenkirche, not Paulkirche! Sorry!)
Image

* Goethe's house!
Image


Tschuess Thao Mai! Danke schoen!

PS: this is an ugly sketchbook...but I've bought it in emergency. I've finished my good one, and I haven't been able to find a fine art's shop in Berlin...so I took the first thing which seemed like a sketchbook! Bad paper...and the rows! Awww! :cry:

Wonderful sketches on 'ugly' sketchbook! Especially Goethe's House...which I wanted to visit on trip to Germany but couldn't for short of time last April.

Your sketches, especially the one of Goethe's house, are wonderful despite bad paper of the notebook. :thumbup:
It was very fun to sketch with you. Too bad that we didn't have much time. If you next time go to Germany, contact me. :P

Cool top deck sketching. I especially love people, door way, and clock tower sketches. Great job to all. :clap:

I really enjoyed all of your sketches :clap:
The images of the buildings and people are beautiful. I like coloring as well.
Thank you for sharing!!
