Wittelsbacherallee, Frankfurt Bornheim.

Another watercolor and pencil sketch on my neighbourhood, the beautiful Wittelsbacheralle that divides Frankfurt Ostend from Frankfurt Bornheim, I think!

The big plane trees accompany the curved street and the charming old buildings.

I drew this on a Sunday in Winter, the soft light, violet and ochre colors, the quietness of the street invited to sketch.

This is a view I enjoy every day walking or cycling to the Atelier. 

I choose this promenade close to the water. At the other side the industrial machines work day and night and move as robots. 

The evening sun falls on the colourful metalic containers and the iron of the bridge appears heavy and elder.

Celuán, pleinair watercolour seascape...

A little beach of white sand where the industrial river flows into the sea.. It is quiet, a bit misty, cloudy and warm, and I think that these pastel colors are so typical of Asturias coast..

Nordendplatz, Frankurt

 Another sketch on location on my way, here the very lively Nordendplatz that has all to be a beloved meeting point:

Small bookshop, natural and home-made ice cream dealer, Café with tables outside...  and a playground for children under big chesnut trees...  In the sketch appear just the bike riders, Altbau fassade and the beautiful big trees... next time more :)

No.2 Records - Concerts

Two musicians, singersong writers, were playing in the small and nice music shop No.2 Records in Sachsenhausen this early year. Both American:  Jim Reed and Ian Fisher.
It was an intim and intense concert with sometimes romantic and sometimes ironic passages and we enjoyed it a lot.

Jim lives in Frankfurt and Ian will play here in February again so I hope to hear them soon!

A sunny day in Winter I went with my bike to an area I have never been before: Oberrad. Actually not far away at all, but somehow isolated because of the highway and train rails. It was very rural and charmant and I enjoyed drawing there with the early Spring light in the sky.

Mampf - The JB Lloyds

Mampf is a small pub with live music many days of the Week, main stream in Jazz and Blues. It is in my neighbourhood so we go there ofter in Winter.
Here were the two funny blues musicians, I thought no one realise when I was drawing, because I always try not to move my head so much, but the singer caught it very soon and asked me to show him the drawings. He was very excited and like them, so said he :D

Jam Sessions in Club Voltaire

It is a very authentic club in Frankfurt.
I went there a couple of weeks ago with Valeria and other friends.
There was open stage and different musicians and singers making music having fun. We had fun too, it was a great atmosphere and I sketched while dancing a bit and  drinking some beer. That's all you need to be happy: friends, music, beer...
At this evening I just had a red pen with me... so a bit bloody sketches here.

  to beer or not to beer..

Palmengarten ...

We are having a very grey, dark, grey, rainy Februrary (not today!). It is also very cold, so on Sunday there is not much joy to go for a hike. That's why a couple of weeks ago I went for a walk to the Palmengarten in Frankfurt. There is cosy and green, and if it is raining you can go inside and feel a bit tropical, even if it is still dark and grey! 💚

 First I tried to stay outside, and I sat under a evergreen tree to paint this majestic Beech tree with oil pastels which are good when it is wet and raining... but the rain didn't want to stop so I moved inside to paint more greenery and the crazy Orchideas blooming! wow, they look a bit like aliens to me...
