I started this boat last June but stopped working on it because I was busy with other things. Yesterday however I was able to finish it. The photograph that inspired this piece belongs to my niece Anna. This is in watercolor and the size is 24 x 30 cm. Hope you'll all have a nice weekend.

During our short visit (4 days) to some cities in Germany, one thing that really amazed me was the Schwebebahn in Wuppertal. In English I think it is called suspension train, but I called it hanging train. I enjoyed very much the rides that we had with the train while doing our sightseeing tour in the city. I have never seen before such kind of railway. It is an amazing innovation. It is running above the river and it is really swinging. One time I could not immediately get out of the train because it was swinging. Anyway, for those who have not seen the train, I have here some photographs for you.
|I took this photo while under the train station. And here we can see the train in blue is coming.|
|Taken while inside the train. The arcs in light green hold the train.|

A few years ago, we got a set of coasters as a gift from a family member who had sailed to the north of Scotland (Schetland island). The coasters were designed with puffins images. Based on one of the images, I made a quick pencil sketch and brushed some watercolors on it. The outcome looks like puffin and I'm showing it here.
