Icebreaker Stettin

posted in: Blog | 1

Every year we celebrate the anniversary of the harbor (something around 800 years) and it gets extremly busy by now. Yesterday we went on the icebreaker Stettin, which is the  biggest coal fired steamboat on earth that is still running. (But not in its original use).

While I was sketching sailor Willy approached me and this led to a very pleasant trip on the Stettin in the evening.

Right now I am experimenting with a new sketchbook (Canson Art Book 180) and my gouache and a more bolder approach. This sketch took me about 40 minutes but I was constantly disrupted to talk with different crew member (which was so nice and funny).

    Hallo Astrid,
    …nicht zu fassen, selbst die Skizzen »leuchten«. Toll!
    Liebe Grüße
