Sketchcrawl in the Bavarian Nationalmuseum:
my first sketch of a white (porcelain ?) box:
A real challenge for me- statue of Marc Aurel (he looks like a cyclist with a helmet on):
My contribution to the collectionof armour sketches – a glove:
Triangles basedon something I saw in the museum – and a last sketch in the Literurhaus:
Group photos in the museum:
discussions and looking at the others‘ work over lunch
Susi and I had a lazy start – we needed to find an open cafe first (the official cafe opposite the entrance wasn’t open yet) … so at least we thought we should do a first sketch while getting our coffee.
Then tackled an old toy : a construction kit for a massive cathedral, made of small stones. Impressive.
Then went outside onto the roof and sketched the tower that is both a hygrometer (i.e. measuring air humidity) as well as a barometer (i.e. measuring air pressure, thus indicating weather getting better or worse). it was a lovely day but the fingers were getting cold !
Plus last but not least – the fabulous antique fire alarm from Berlin – although actually it was red rather than pink – this is due to my watercolour box having fallen down and the purple dye powder is now all over the place – so red gets pinkish….
Anyway we had fun and I am already looking forward to the next crawl.
The „jubilee“ sketchcrawl (5 years) and record attendance in Munich – a group of 5 this time !
As it is too cold outside to be sketching (although the recent weather was more spring-like than November) we were in the Völkerkundemuseum (ethnological museum).
Quite a challenge for the start – my perspectives still leave room for improvement
So being lazy going back to „simple“ patterns; the flowery motif is from a stitched quilt, exquisite handwork
On the left an alter from Samoa, carved wood; on the right some printed pattern :
Upstairs in the north american department. Feather headdress and vase plus some more patterns…
The feather/plume headdress, with white feathers, cut in a zig-zag style
auf der Praterinsel:
Collage mit Fundstück:
Leider war das Wetter gar nicht Juli-like….
Danach noch eine letzte Skizze am Jakobsplatz, damit das Buch voll wird…..
The weather was great – sunny, blue sky and warm (very unlike last time :thumbup: ) and we had a 50% increase in attendance ! So 3 sketchers versus 2 sketchers… not bad.
I was at the meeting point a bit early so decided to challenge myself and do my first of the view onto Feldherrnhalle from my sunny coffee spot.
This is my version….
Here are the Munich sketchers for this 22nd sketchcrawl….
Then another sketch in the quiet Kabinettsgarten – I chose the flowers.
This was our last sketching point together, we walked overto Viktualienmarkt – it was crazy, totally busy with lots of visitors, Bayern Munich playing in the afternoon, several demonstrations going on ….
Looking forward to the next sketchcrawl, we may even be meeting before that to do some sketching together – so Kerstin, let us know how to contact you – we can certainly find a day and time that suits you as well !
Today was 21st Sketchcrawl – sunny, blue sky but freezing cold outside so most of our (Tenar & I) 4 hours were spent inside coffee places…
Here are my sketches:
Then walked up to Siegestor:
Then more coffee and this flower on our table:
Some quick shopping and back home with a hot drink !
It was fun and very nice meeting somebody with an interest in textiles, too ! Tenar, thanks for letting me use your colours…
Until next time !
