Marktplatz- Basel, CH


Marktplatz- Basel, CH, originally uploaded by Rob Carey2.

July 14, 2010. Very hot in Basel today, but I'm not complaining. After a very cold winter, we're having a very hot summer. But no problem. Today it lingered somewhere around 100 F degrees, and we boarded a boat that took us up the Rhine a bit and back. Everybody drove back home and I stayed a little longer to sketch this little corner of the Marktplatz before jumping on a bus and going home.

This is brilliant! Love the complexity and delicacy of the stonework!

Lovely sketch. You had no problem with sweat? Sometimes the paper bulbs where I put my hand.

Thanks, Alex. It really is a unique and beautiful church, although it was locked up, so I couldn't see the inside.

Thanks, Rene. The watercolor notebook I'm using was a gift from my mother, and the paper is good stuff- you can see most of my sketches of late are in that notebook.
