Modest sketches!

One of my hobbies I discovered lately: sketches. My favourite is city sketches, houses, architecture sketches. Maybe it comes from being an urban person. I just love cities. But I am not an artist and I don’t know how to draw. Drawing is all about perspectives and shadows but I have no clue of this. I draw what I see and my drawings look like baby sketches. It is fun!

This sketch below was done in Montparnasse, in Paris, as I was sitting in a café, windy and cold day. In Paris, it always feels like singing with Edith Piaff “Sous le ciel de Paris”:


This sketch is about East of Berlin, a city I absolutely love, for the energetic and coolness vibe of it:

The third sketch is a house I saw nearby where I live in Beirut. I drew what I recalled of it

Nothing philosophical about this post!

  1. What is great is that you dare to just do something new.
    I often got depressed when starting things because I was so bad about it.

    I understand tht you must undergo total business in Beirut right now – and later trauma will follow.
    Maybe later when you find the time again you can do scetches about the city-trauma to work yours out
    or even put up some kind of exibition (or put it up in some community place) to help others with it also.

      1. Yes. Mouse-Lynnchen! Our horsy pioneer-spirit!
        That is what will get us further on the path of enlightenment than many.
        That’s probably also why you can speak so many languages etc…

        When nothing happens I sometimes choose a new field to work on – currently I brush my teeth with my left (non-dominant) hand.
        I will take you as an inspiration and also will start to scetch around silly some time.
        I can’t paint at all but who knows what will come out of it.

        On another note:
        How do you personally handle your corona-precautions now that you are in the midst of a huge turmoil?
        And how do other Lebanese handle it?

      2. It is always good for the mind and the soul to learn new skills. Thank you for making me an inspiration in this ❤👌

        Now corona rates are flying through the top. People are trying to follow the instructions but it is hard in these times.

      3. Yeah you are my little inspiration!
        (I just featured you in my testimonials as “D. Maylynn – philosophy professor” – used your surname abbreviation to spice up your competence – hahaha)

        How do you personally protect yourself from corona these days ?
        Surely you can’t walk around in a raincoat etc. anymore all the time (or you simply stay 30km away).
        I ask, because I realised that there also is some kind of tiredness of protecting oneself once the first fear wore down. Especially when being surrounded by corona-deniers it is tempting to temporarily let one guards down.
