Das Hardenbergsche Haus, Goucha, pencil, ink
Last week I was giving two pastel workshops in Hannover. In between I had a break which I intended to use to sketch at the Herrenhäuser Gardens.
The Gardens are a heritage of the kings of Hannover. »The Great Garden has always been one of the most distinguished baroque formal gardens of Europe« (wikipedia) and I wanted to spend some time there. But a storm was coming in and even though the sun was shining, a fierce wind was blowing from the east and it made it impossible to sketch outside. So I took refuge in my car and did a sketch of the house of the gardener. Well, he actually derives from a noble family and hold the position of a privy councillor.
