Looking up from the Petrusse valley


For the June sketchcrawl  our sketchers group met at the Sacré Coeur church in Luxemburg.
I was early so I started a warm-up sketch:

 Going down the narrow and slippery path into the Petrusse valley was a tricky business with my recently sprained ankle. But with the solid support of my fellow sketchers I arrived safely in the valley and could enjoy the cool shade on this hot day.

From my very comfortable camping chair I had a nice view looking up the passerelle, where tiny people were passing and the June light filtered  through the arches. The sky changed from blue over clouded to thundery, but we did not get wet. At least not from above – because the ground was so humid that my sketching papers got damp.

 
 
 


100% concentration:

 


And a chat afterwards:



 




Following the Petrusse we arrived at the Alzette river, and after crossing the small bridge in the Grund we ended up at Scott’s Pub for a drink.
