Waldfriedhof, SH

On today's fine public holiday I took my new square watercolor block, sat by the City Nursery facing the entrance to the Forest Cemetery and splashed my watercolors happily all over the page. A few people walked by, enjoying the multitude of colorful flowers after visiting their late relatives or friends. I had hoped for sunshine but the sky was overcast, leaving me with hardly any directional shadows.
I had "Die Drei Fragezeichen" for company :-)

Niklausenplatz II

As I came home from another long day at work, it was so warm outside that it was absolutely fine to put on some flip flops and sit on a arm wall to sketch.
The higher temperatures however also meant that more of the stuff that makes my throat tingle and nose itch was in the air. Which meant I needed to take the allergy meds that make my hands shaky. They still are as I am typing this. It's like drinking too much coffee.
At least my brush strokes on the trees were a little more loose :-)
