I took advantage of the beautiful weather and 30 minutes of waiting time and drew the old observatory of the ETH Zürich: The building was completed in 1864, and used as an observatory until 1980. I discovered the building some years ago, and always liked it, finally got to draw it!

Pencil 3B

actually, its Schmelzbergstrasse 25


I met up with other sketchers at 19:30 in the evening at the hardbrücke, while it rained heavily. So i searched for a dry place to sit and started with scratchboard. I haven't used since years, and this was a good occasion to try it out again. For the second one i went back to my old beloved white paper, and used a black and red marker. It was fun, but cold, and after this two sketches we went to the next bar and warmed ourself up.

halleluja: i've some time to draw. i got up one hour earlier than i had to for university and went to sketch a wonderful house. It's a bit shaby, but it has its charm, and probably a wonderful view over the city, since its high up over the city without any buildings right in front. The next day i went to do the colors on a wonderful sunny morning. It's quite cold already though, i couldn't sit there for more than 45 minutes...
the second one is just a quick one, about 10 minutes, as i could sit in the lectureroom anymore...

fineliner, schmincke watercolors, pencil 2B,

Gloriastrasse 54
an old lady walked by, and asked me what i'm drawing. I showed her my drawing (she liked it) and then she said: "oh that old building. it should be torn down!" - it would be a shame!

Zürichbergstrasse 29
i really like old building and draw them a lot - and i always draw the graffitis on it too! My friends always ask, why i won't leave them out. But i think that they belong to them - one could also ask as well, why i draw the the company's name on the window. But thats how they look, and i stay true to the facts!
