My card from Albrecht


I'm once again so happy to be the owner of this card from Albrecht. His use of pencil to capture a scene is a joy. You can almost see the pencil dancing across the card - adding here and there a little detail, hatching to achieve the darker tones and leaving the white to show the flash of sunlight.



Turner's painting of the Castle

He's siting on the famous Goethe Marianne Bench at Heidlberg Castle and when I  researched to find out more  I've realised what an important historical place it is and I've added an illustration of a painting by Turner to show it's significance.

Albrecht has also drawn a carving on the limestone bench of Ginko leaves and a Hoopoe. Thankyou Albrecht.

Wonderful movement in the sketch of the trees along with the feeling of sunlight

And another hoopoe finds his way onto A Postcard From My Walk... I love those birds!

A beautiful sketch, seemingly casual pencil strokes but perfectly describing statue, balustrade and sunlit trees. Love the hoopoe too!

I didn't realise the hoopoes went that far north. Beautiful landscape sketch, as always from Albrecht. Inspired to get out my pencils.

I am drawn to graphite so this card is especially dear to me. Lovely
