Sketching in Basel, Switzerland along the Rhein

It was awesome to spend some time along the Rhein this week and make another travel sketch. Of course, we used to live here before we moved to Colorado - so this is not the first time I have sketched this spot. We hold many wonderful memories from this city and from this very spot.

It was fun to add in the backhoe into this sketch - it adds a little quirky element.


  1. Quirky to the point of surreal for these new world eyes. :-)

  2. Thanks for the great presentations over the past few weeks . . . and nice blog :-) I also love doing travel sketches: somehow traveling draws out the sketcher in me. Though I don't think I did any when I was in Prague . . .
    At any rate, I have greatly appreciated your insights and wish you the best as you carry on in your ministry.

  3. Zurich is Switzerland's business focus. It is likewise Switzerland's biggest city and is arranged in the Alps on Lake Zurich. look at this

  4. Some of the steamers that sail along the Rhine in Basel will even take you to a section of the Rhine that allows you to see into both Germany and France. You can also arrive into Switzerland in Basel, but Basel's airport is actually in France.Geneva airport car hire
