Sketchtour Kirchberg an der Jagst

20 Sketchers from 8 countries and 2 continents followed Bettinas Ruppert invitation and came to the Castle in Kirchberg an der Jagst for the weekend.

It was a big joy to meet each other and immediately we started to sketch. 

It weather was wonderful. This little old town and the castle where the perfect scenery for sketching day...

...and night.

Bettina organized everything, spoiled us und took care of everyone. She knew exactly where (and at what time of the day) would be the best view point for a panorama sketch

and other charming places.

Every meal was well planed, even combined with a sketchwalk and transport. The only thing we had to do was to appear in time at the phoenixes. 

What I really love about such sketchers meetings - it is absolutely ok not to stop sketching during the shared meals :)

It was a great weekend and I hope to see you all soon again!

Hamburg City / collection spring 2021 - 2022

 I love the architecture mix in Hamburg downtown.

Hamburg - water, port and ships

Hamburg means life at the waterside. The USk Hamburg meets often in such points and here is a collection of my sketches from the last year.

La Gomera 2022

After our trip to La Gomera got canceled last year, I was really looking forward to this year's trip. We planned to stay in Valle Gran Rey for six weeks. Six weeks in January / Febuary - a real and truly sought-after escape from the weather in Hamburg during this time.

This time we booked a nice flat in La Puntilla. From the balcony we could see the mountain on the left side

and to the right side, we overlooked the street with its shops and palm trees. Whereas, in the front of us, there was quite a big field of bananas and other fruit trees.

The best way to discover the beauty of this island is by hiking. These walks in nature are moments of pure happiness for me. A real timeout. A break from worries and tension.

There always was a bar at the end or half-way through a tour. One of our favorite was Bar Victoria in El Cercado. His pan con tomate y jamon was a real highlight for us.

And after such a long hike, we usually stayed in Valle Gran Ray the day after, where it was particularly crowded of tourists this year.

We were bathing, reading, sketching and just hanging around and planning our hike for the next day.

Adios y hasta el proximo año.
