I didn't make this scene up! The girls were chatting on one side of the river bank and ducks were engrossed in conversation not far away. The ducks didn't stay as long as the girls; I drew fast and then painted them from memory.
This is the English Garden, a park in the center of Munich that is the largest on the Continent; bigger than Central Park. You really see the German sense of fun here; there are bikes everywhere, and on a sunny Sunday everyone's out enjoying themselves. The river has a spot that makes a natural wave, where the locals line up to surf. Who knew you could surf in Munich?
