Vienna, Austria [RESULTS]

Post by m9fred » Sun Apr 20, 2014 2:09 am

My first Solo-Sketchcrawl!
All Sketchers in Vienna were working, visiting relatives or spending some days out of town.
So I grabbed my basic equipment for sketching and just strolled around on this mostly sunny but windy morning.

Image
Preparing my daily dose of caffeine.

Image

Image
One part of a very tiny park, just enough space for a small grassed area and a few trees.
The blue path indicates the "Ottakringer Bach", a brook which causes frequent flood and now (since 1729) runs belowground in a drain.

Image
Graffiti in the suburb.

Image

Image
:eh: Some kind of cheerless looking prehistoric salamander.

Image

Image
Historic part of the "Ottakringer Brauerei" the last large brewery in Vienna which was founded in 1837.
Image

Image

Image
Toasted brown bread with scrambled eggs, onion, chives (and greaves if you like) along with red cabbage and a green pepper (not a hot chilly pepper). And a glass of beer (Ottakringer Helles).

Image

Don't neglect the side-effects of too much beer! :crazy:

Dear m9fred, :
Thank you for checking out our Crawl! I recently posted some new images from the crew.
Sorry it took me a while to upload about 40 images using my slow old prehistoric computer! :oops:
Looks like you had pleasant weather (and beer); that toast and eggs look great; Funny, yes I see the resemblance to your expression in the sculpture who drank too much beer!
:D

Sorry the others were all busy. I hope they are fine and I can see their drawings on the next Crawl! Did the building owner pay for that large graffiti art? Wish I could have shared the day with you, M9fred. Glad you made it, tho. I like the brewery roof drawing. :thumbup:

Hallo m9fred,
finde ich klasse, dass du einen 1-Mann-Sketchcrawl gemacht hast!! Die rote Kaffeemaschine zum Auftakt gefällt mir besonders gut. Was wären alle Sketchcrawls ohne Kaffee.. :) Mir gefällt auch die Dokumentation der Stationen inkl. der Mittagspause.
Viele Grüße aus München von Gisela

Thank you all for your kind and encouraging comments.
@Mark
I don't know if the building owner payed for that graffiti, because sometimes graffiti artists are allowed to try their skill on buildings which are dedicated to be restored.
