2 paintings down

Sorry, I'm bad at updating this thing. So far, we've hung out in Winterthur and for a few days we went to the Peer's house in Lavin. I've only done two complete paintings but I started a new one in Zurich today. I've been sketching a lot, it just takes me so long to do paintings. I'm going to do more though, plus some more when I get home based on memory and pictures. Here are the two paintings I've done so far. They're just crappy photos, I'll scan them when I return home. 

This is the view of Winterthur from the Rose Garden. This doesn't make me too happy because the pen I used was new, and I didn't realize it wasn't water proof because I thought that if it was Copic proof it had to be waterproof. But it ended up smearing a bit. I learned from my mistake though.

This is behind the Peer's house in Lavin. It's the Rhine going under the wooden bridge. This one took a while, but I think it came out okay. 

Today I started a painting of the Lake of Zurich. Here are a few pictures, but not nearly as many as I have taken throughout the entire trip.

The stars were unbelievable, this picture does not capture them.

And of course, my new swatch watch! It's a guys watch, but I love it.  I feel like a sea captain. 

This is just a sneak preview. I will post more pictures on facebook, it takes wayyyyy to long to upload on here. Hope this post holds you over for a bit!
