Hi Everyone! I am back home in Calgary after a wonderful time in Europe including a cruise to the Baltic cities of Skagen, Tallinn, Helsinki, St. Petersburg, Stockholm and Copenhagen. The old town centres are wonderfully rich in history and architecture and became my sketching destination in each port..
Skaagen is a small town on the northern most tip of Denmark where the waves of Baltic and the North Sea meet and intersect.. The traditional house has red brick, white trim and tile roof.
Tallinn in Estonia has a delightful market square full of stalls, crowds and music. The 700 year old town hall with its soaring tower caught my eye and became the subject of my sketch.
The railway station in Helsinki had an enormous pair of guardians flanking the entrance.
Coffee, pastry and a sketchbook go well together anywhere in the world.
We walked our feet off in Copenhagen. This sketch was taken from a bench on the canal, not with a Carlsberg but instead a very good coffee from the local 7/11.
Looking forward to seeing you soon!
