Sketchcrawl in Limpertsberg

Last Sunday we met at the Grand Théâtre de la Ville de Luxembourg and went out sketching from there to the area of Limpertsberg.

Limpertsberg is one of the residential areas around the city centre and is particularly known for the many highschools located there.

I was pleasantly surprised to see a couple of new faces, people who seem eager to sketch on a regular basis.

As we were by the Grand Théâtre, we decided to sketch it, too. I find the building a bit tricky with all its slanted windows, but it was fun to try and I also found an interesting looking fire hydrant which served as a nice break from the building.

It turned out the cycling Tour de Luxembourg was passing through Limpertsberg, so we had time to see a few cyclists rushing by before we headed out in search of a nice café or pub.

We found a nice Lebanese restaurant (L-Bey) that only served drinks and sweets at that time. Perfect for a short drink & draw break.

The people there were very friendly and even offered us some cakes. I definitely recommend this place.

Time flies and we only had time for one more stop after this. Leen took us to a small park at the top of Limpertsberg where I saw these interesting trees (I think they were birches) through which cars and houses were peeking.

Levels are still tricky...
Our little group is getting bigger and more regular, which I'm very happy about. Plus, we are soon going to become the national USk chapter for Luxembourg, so that is very exciting news.
