Sketch from Lorrach Farmer's Market

The weather was perfect today. So we went into Lorrach to look around. I found a moment to sit on a bench at one end of the farmer's market and sketch this scene. It was fun to do. I had two people stop and comment on my work. One was super encouraging ("wunder schoen!"). The other observer stopped, sat down, and then pointed out that I had neglected to draw the trees (which I then did) and a few wispy clouds - which I didn't do. It was hard to complete my sketch with that lady leaning in so close. So, I found an excuse to get up and leave - "I wonder where my wife is? I better go find her! Tschuss!"
The opposite page is a sketch from Basel that I did two weeks ago.

  1. Very nice sketch, Tim. Looks like the weather is pretty nice back in DE. Did you get ice cream?
