two quarters

Near the römerhof in zürich, there are two different quarters. One is above the main street with the tramway, the other is just under it. Although they're so close, they are quite diferent: One has a lot of small one family houses - the other has big old english houses. Some things they have in common: it's expensive to live there, and the quarters are really green - a lot of nice gardens, big trees just beside the houses, and more colors than in center of the city.
It's also nice to draw there: it's quiet, has a lot of beautiful scenes and a good cafe right in the middle.
I drew the black lines on the 23th, and did the colors yesterday and the day before.

Streulistrasse 17, Samariterstrasse 30, A5, fineliner & watercolors, each about 1.5 hours

wip - the drawing

and with colors: i love the contrast in the colors, and am quite happy with the shadows, but not so with perspective...

tried to keep the focus on the shadows - it still isn't that good, but its coming along!
