A rainy October Sunday at the Fligermusee and the Parc Thermal at Mondorf-les-bains




 After the summer break - and the weather gods took this very literally, with rain showers and gusty winds - Urban Sketchers Luxembourg met again at Mondorf-les-bains, to sketch together in the Parc Thermal and the tiny Fligermusee.


Isabelle 

Most of us stayed inside the little glass pavillion and sketched the bold colors and diagonal lines of the old planes crisscrossing the upper hall like giant insects.






A little break…


And the individual results:

I was the only fool to venture in the Parc and sketch between the raindrops and the gusts of wind. I tried to capture the old fountain at the French side of the Parc.

But after an hour and a half, with cold feet and cold hands, I joined the others in the Fligermusee…

Mariette preferred to stay at home and sketch the virtual Parc buildings.

And, ‘noblesse oblige’ 😉, we could not end the afternoon without the traditional drink&draw at Brasserie Maus Kätti!

October 2021 Sketchcrawl of Urban Sketchers Luxembourg in the Thermal Park of Mondorf les Bains



 After the September break we are back to Urban Sketching with new enthusiasm. We will find inspiration in the autumnal colours of the beautiful Thermal Park of Mondorf les Bains

In case of rain we will find shelter in the Aviation Museum, which is located in the heart of the Park and where we will also find some very interesting subjects!
Meeting point on Sunday 3 October at 2pm in the Thermal Park of Mondorf les Bains in front of the Aviation Museum




Après la pause de septembre nous reprenons le Urban Sketching avec nouvel enthousiasme. Nous trouverons de l’inspiration dans les couleurs automnales du beau Parc Thermal de Mondorf les Bains

En cas de pluie nous trouverons un abri dans le Musée de l’Aviation, qui se trouve au coeur du Parc et où nous trouverons également des sujets bien intéressants!

A Ferry Ride and Moselle Sketching


 Our August sketchcrawl took place at the Moselle as usual. 

This time however we started with a delicate amuse bouche to get in the Moselle mood: we took the small ferry Sankta Maria II to get to Oberbillig on the German side.






Pedro de Oliveira





Against all odds, the weather turned out to be fantastic sketching weather: not too hot, beautiful light, romantic billowing clouds



The sketchers in full concentration.


Time for a break.




Here some results, more in detail:

 “Difficile de fixer les nuages insaisissables…un cygne peut-être ? …pour finir sur des vélos en attente…rire avec Carlo, puis boire un pot entre sketchers à l’abri des grands arbres. Vite se réfugier sous l’auvent quand l’averse nous surprend et humer le parfum de la pluie qui s’imprègne dans le sol séché avant de reprendre le ferry”

I think we got back to the Luxembourg side just in time ;-) ⛈☔️
