annnnd here's some more! Also be sure to go look at Danielle Buerli's lovely drawings and photos, who was my travel partner, bread and cheese sharer and silly-pose expert.
here is a sketch of Danielle planning our route,
and a card from the Mexico-themed bar we went to in Zurich
some messy sketches of the mountains on our super long train (actually 4 trains) to Nice from Zurich. We didn't make reservations in time, so we took smaller trains through some pretty incredible countryside. super green and giant giant mountain ranges, with old bridges for the train.
our first stop was Nice, where the beaches are rocky and swimsuit tops are optional.
it was lovely to swim in the sea and have little fish swimming around your feet. and you could see to the bottom. and there was ice cream.
some people at our hostel in Nice, and the roof outside our hostel in Marseille, which was the next stop, but only for one night.
another drawing from the Natural History Museum in Barcelona. Did you know the scientific name for the Eurasian Eagle-Owl is Bubo bubo? Ohh, science, you so silly.
rather than being super cool and doing extensive master copies inside,
I just drew the outside of the Museo de Prado.
some sketches of amazing sculptures and notes of things to remember in the Musee d'Orsay, which was one of my favorite museums. it has everything. I wish we had a whole day for it. Next time.
sleepin' on the train- Danielle and some...other...guy. I am always afraid that they will wake up and I'll be staring at someone, creepily drawing them. It's okay when its your friend, though...right?
mostly collage from all the brochures and things from Paris, with a little gouache painting of Marie Antoinette's funny little "Hamlet" where she pretended she wasn't queen. There were some giant terrifying swarming fish in that pond.
aaand finally a vulture from Barcelona. He was awesome and huge.
