Painting while on the Danube River - Viking Cruise
Life on the Danube River,
Regensburg, Bavarian, Germany.
Regensburg, in Bavaria, Germany
From the top deck of the Viking Ship, Bragi, as we were docked in the medieval city of Regensburg, I was able to quickly sketch one of the two royal palaces that helps to give Regensburg it's status as a registered Medieval City by UNESCO. The architecture of the city, dates from the 11th to the 13th century and includes ancient Romanesque and Gothic buildings.
The challenges of this plein air painting included facing into the sun as well as trying to finish as the ship was leaving the dock! I still love plein air painting for capturing the immediateness of the scene that my studio paintings might not.
