Excursions

We went walking a while back up the hills near Wolfstal, the other side of the border, where there’s an old ruined fort. I filled up the remaining space in my old sketchbook, which I don’t have with me, and then started in a new one. The first picture in the new book was of some building near the top of the hill on the sunny side, adorned with large radar or satellite dishes or something:

Here’s a pub from a village near Wolfstal:

On a trip down the river, canoeing and picking up rubbish (our canoe acquired a tire, a bucket, two shoes, and a bag or two of trash), we saw the following: weird barrel-shaped rooms for camping in.

On another trip across the border, to Kittsee, we saw this church:

and this house:

Part of the ruined Pajštun castle, which was some random bog-standard castle before Napoleon came and forcefully improved it. Castle ruins are difficult to draw, at least at my level of skill – difficult to suggest the texture of the walls with a few pen-strokes.

Another post is scheduled for Monday, with various pictures in and around Bratislava.
