A fast sketch by the bay. Still no leaves on the trees, and even though the weather was warm, the wind was surprisingly cold.
It’s finally warm enough to sit outside and draw.
The day was surprisingly chilly and humid.
From my office window, I can see the new train station and mall being built.
Maybe the biggest surprise in Vienna was that you can find many places to swim, just a few subway stops from downtown. These are either quiet branches of the Danube or cut-off sections (basically lakes). Some are surrounded by high-rises, others by parks.
We spent a wonderful two weeks around Lake Garda and the Sud Tirol / Alto Adige, mostly hiking in the mountains. I had time to paint a few watercolours, mostly of mountains.
A wonderful little square near our apartment. The trees are a strange species from Argentina, called ombu.
We spent three weeks in Barcelona, and that was too short. I only had time to do a few sketches, but I think the city will continue to inspire my paintings for a while.
