Summer Holidays in Spain!

Dear people! I will be out a couple of weeks, traveling to Spain tomorrow. 
So please, be patient and wait until I am back with lots of beautiful spanish landscapes.
But I am not going without leaving you some nice pictures. The early summer in Rudow (where I ride escaping the city..), and a late evening watercolor.

Artconnect, Community Clash #4

In Prachtwerk, a high ceiling, beautiful decorated café in Berlin, Neukölln.
The artist meeting. 
Many hipsters, many, many, all of them! (only me not :P)
A very nice Illustration exhibition.. and the best the psychedelic musics with flowered clothes, all same pattern (it made me think on "The Sound of Music"). I am learning now that two of them are sibilings: 
Stereofysh  was their name... They were having so much fun! I was infected by their laughing too.

Encuentro de artistas en el bonito café de techos altos Prachtwerk, en Neukölln.
Muchos hipsters, muchos muchos! todos ellos! ( salvo yo! :P)
Una exposición de ilustraciones muy bonita y unos músicos en el escenario, psicodélicos ellos y la música, con uniforme florido, todos ellos el mismo, que me recordó a "Sonrisas y lágrimas". Dos de ellos hermanos, estaba claro! Stereofysh se llamaban, y lo estaban pasando tan bien, que me contagiaron la risa.

Baumblütenfest in Werder

Blossom festival of Werder (Havel).
after the Wine and the Hiking, here was the "Himmel"
It was already long ago, nearly three months ago, but we had already Summer weather and Summer feelings! Spring in Berlin can be a gift. 
We went to Werder, a little, cute old village a bit further than Potsdam, along many canals and Havel river. They celebrate at the end of April this street festival, with many stands of fruit wine. 
The location is really like a dream if the weather is sunny, as it was. We made a hiking in the hills surrounding the village. There were many little "Biergarten" with really old apple trees, and also many apple trees fields that made me remember my homeland Asturias.. I just missed the Cider...

Me drawing the lazy and tired people around, at the end of the hike.
It was a special magical Biergarten with music instruments!

Hace ya casi tres meses tuvimos tiempo de verano, y fuimos de excursión a Werder, un antiguo pueblo un poco más allá de Potsdam, rodeado de ríos y canales.
A finales de Abril hacen un festival de vinos aprovechando la floración de todos los frutales que hacen todo tan bonito y alegre. Había muchos stands con vinos macerados con diversas frutas y la locación con ese día soleado era de ensueño. 
Caminamos por las colinas de los alrededores. Había muchos merenderos con manzanos, y muchos campos de manzanos o pomaradas, lo que me hizo recordar a mi Asturias natal .. solo faltaba el olor a sidra escanciada... y un par de culines que con gusto hubiese tomado! :)

Black shadows, grey sky...

and no watercolor this time..

Guess where? in the Mauerweg (so, Wall path) again.

I was on my way to the garden, in Rudow, it was late and dark, so I changed my mind: I sat down in this fresh mown field and did a quick sketch, and luckily I took this decision, because it started soon to rain.
So I turned quickly back home.


Sombras negras y cielo oscuro! Adivinad dónde? en el camino del antiguo muro!
Iba rumbo al huerto, era ya tarde y estaba plomizo, así que cambié de idea y me senté en la hierba recién segada a hacer un apunte.
Y por suerte que tomé esta decisión, porque al poco tiempo comenzó a llover y volví  a casa.
