Drawings of the Mosel Valley

I love these sketches by fellow blogger, observationaldrawing.

…So, over Easter Sarah and I managed to get away thanks to our friends dragging us/driving us across the water (laughs) and we had a fantastic short holiday in and around Merl and Zell on the Mosel in Germany, Sarah and I’s first holiday abroad.

x Untitled-3…this rough doodle of the approach to Zell, walking from Merl.

I still snuck some sketching in mind, the place was beautiful and full of great looking architecture set against the fantastic landscape* of this wine making region (the Mosel).

*imagine a scaled up pennine valley without any of the industrial blots on the landscape and instead picturesque collections of spires of all shapes and sizes, dominating Disney/Medieval style pitched roofs and shuttered windows.

x Scan 9

None of my drawings will really do it justice, but it was fun trying to capture the scale and the relative antiquity of the views… above, looking across the Mosel River…
