An Indian Summer from Heidelberg


A glorious sun-dappled pathway up the Heiligenberg is my eagerly awaited card from Albrecht this month. I can clearly sense the delight of walking here in this bonus bit of summer, bringing with it a range of colours never seen here before - of which Albrecht thoughtfully drew up a chart for me to 'fill in' his drawing with!! But Albrecht, you forgot to put the numbers where each colour should go... ;-) Besides, the line drawing is quite descriptive enough. On the other side, a sparkling sketch of plane trees in front of his window give me a good idea of the colour version - what a beautiful postcard, I love the touch of the sketchbook perforations down the side.

Lovely - those shadows take you right there and the colour sections too are so evocative - our leaves are losing their colours now and a lot of the trees are bare. That glorious colour is so quickly gone.

What a lovely little study of autumn. The shapes and shadows are just right. We must enjoy those gorgeous colours while they last. As Vivien said, the colour is so quickly gone.

Delightful sketches and a very witty idea.

Isn't this a wonderful pen sketch - how does Albrecht do it - such great draughtsmanship and successful composition.

It's just beautifully done,my eye is skipping down this road that is covered by beautifully colored trees. Very witty indeed!

I so enjoy Albrecht's view of his walks. I feel that I am right beside him.

No skipping for me, Desiree, but I can see you skipping next to Albrecht.

I confess I was intrigued when I saw all those colours at the side. But nice to have a record of all the colours from the glorious autumn of 2011.
