Drawing Club: Moscow Trams

Life around continues to publish sketches of its employees and friends, united in the "Club of draftsmen." Among them are both professional illustrators and just those who love and learn to draw. This time, a tax consultant, journalist and Portuguese artist joined the Draftsmen’s Club, and they drew Moscow trams.

When I first arrived in Moscow, I got on tram number 39. If you go at sunset, you will see incredible beauty: the sky shimmers with all shades of orange, and all this absolutely changes the feeling of the city. Well, in addition, the tram route passes through the center, which makes it possible to feel how big Moscow is. I had to do the left drawing standing, other passengers were hustling around, so I only had a couple of minutes to capture this tram atmosphere. And in the second sketch, the main problem was straight lines: the tram shook mercilessly. Well, it was hard not to be distracted by this sunset.

Since childhood I have been confusing trams and trolleybuses, that is, of course, I understand well how they differ from each other, but in order to correctly name this transport at a particular moment in time, I need to think for a couple of seconds. I always liked trams more, because they go on rails and for a child this is a more exciting journey. We painted in the rain near the oldest tram depot in Moscow named after Apakova. One of his routes, as it turned out, is route A (Annushka), exactly the one described by Bulgakov. I didn’t know this, and in the evening I went to google about Annushka and the depot itself, so the sketches turned out to be also useful for broadening my horizons.

The tram depot is almost a magical place from childhood. In the summer I spent a lot of time visiting my grandparents in Kolomna, and there the trams were the main means of transportation for the whole city. I remember how I fell asleep and woke up under the uniform knock of their wheels. And with what joy since then I see the little red, old models, I have not gotten used to new trams.

A ride on a tram means opening Moscow from the other side. Be sure to include them in the excursion program. And a walk along Chistoprudny Boulevard, and buying a ticket on the tram itself - there is something going away in this. Well, actually, the enjoyment of rattle and rattle of wheels.

I love trams. They are romantic, a little dangerous and look like big bugs!

Public transport, in my opinion, is a detail that determines the look of any city. In Moscow, frankly, ugly and uncomfortable trams. But to draw them, in them, as well as in the tram depot is quite interesting and resembles a bit of historical research. But in a tram you generally feel like in a time machine.

The shops were empty, the streets were clean, and the onset of capitalism, if it had begun, was still not so obvious.
