Travel sketching – Budapest

This post continues from Travel Sketching from the journeys from Prague, and en route towards Budapest.

We spent one short, but sweet, day in sunny Budapest. So there was only one sketch which I could manage. I fell in love with this beautiful city, and will surely return in the near future.

Országház (Hungarian Parliament) – because who doesn’t love Renaissance Revival architecture?

Travel sketching – en route to Budapest

So en route to Budapest we went, viewing the picturesque countryside via Bratislava. Despite the limited knowledge of English to those that we met, there were many kind and friendly passengers along the way, complimenting on my sketchbook and drawing.

Little did they know that it was their hospitality, and the relaxing environs which continuously inspire, and motivate me.

Travel sketching – Prague

So, a few months back, I went on a short break to the beautiful city of Prague in the Czech Republic, and what better excuse to soak in the sights, sample local food, and of course, sketching the beautiful architecture in the picturesque surroundings?

Pražský hrad (Prague Castle), viewed from Karlův most (Charles Bridge). The sunset there was breathtaking, and accompanied by wonderful street performers serendating us into the great evening.

We visited the Katedrála svatého Víta, Václava a Vojtěcha (Metropolitan Cathedral of Saint Vitus, Wenceslaus and Adalbert, also referred to as St. Vetus Cathedral) the next morning, soaking in the foggy atmosphere, which later cleared up to reveal the skyline of Prague in the warm sunshine.

Busy City – On Your Bike x Nolias Gallery

Update April 2016 – Good news, Busy City – On Your Bike is now available on society6! » Busy City – On Your Bike on Society6

 

Recently, I have been asked to exhibit a few pieces of work at Nolias Gallery in Central London. And thought it a perfect time to take the ‘Busy City’ series to the next level.
Before automobiles and engines, one of the main modes of transport was the bicycle. With the exhibition theme of ‘On Your Bike’, a special edition of ‘Busy City’ was created as a tribute to generations past, who relied on bicycles as a vital tool in connecting trade, goods and people to allow cities to be built and prosper.

‘Busy City – On Your Bike’ is the largest from the series to date, and, as all ‘Busy City’ illustrations are, are all hand drawn. The full version can be seen in person at Nolias Gallery, 60 Suffolk Street, London, until 28th October. (Nearest tube: Southwark)

Prints will be available at a later date. In the meantime, the ‘Busy City’ series is available in art prints, laptop skins and even travel mugs now! Get them at my society6 shop » society6.com/scarlettfu
