Day 53, Thursday, October 17, 2019
I had a relaxing day at our Munich Airbnb and Bob spent the better part of the day sorting out the transit system and where to get tickets. I went to life drawing in the evening. The session was at an artist’s apartment, which was really more of a studio than an apartment. Everyone was very nice and made me feel very welcome.
Here are some photos that were posted on the Meetup page for the session. Maurice is the artist who hosted the event. That is him in the centre of the photo.
Here is our model, Bettina, she is very pregnant. How wonderful! It has been ages since I have had the chance to draw a pregnant model so this was an unexpected bonus. The drawing on the left is mine. I did a couple sketches to warm up. Then spent about two hours working on this drawing. Bob came to pick me up after the session and on the metro ride home I did a bit more sketching.
This was interesting, the older man with the facial hair was sitting right across the aisle from me and he was only on the metro for one stop so I sketched quickly hoped he didn’t notice that I was sneaking peeks at him. The young man with glasses did notice I was drawing him and he smiled at me, I smiled back and he tried not to smile as I continued sketching. As he got up to leave I showed him the sketch and he said something in German, then he smiled and said ciao, so I think he liked it.
Day 54, Friday, October 18, 2019
We both had a relaxing quiet day. It is nice to have some down time after seven weeks of holidays. The big event of the day was going for a little walk to get some groceries.
