Two of my best results from a life drawing session last Tuesday. Normally, I start with line drawings, but this time I started the drawing by sketching the dark parts (shadow) of the model with a light colour, and then clarifying the shapes with a…

My daughter Meike (13 years) loves to draw. She went with me to urban sketchers meetings several times, concluding that sketching buildings is boring. However, last week she became very enthusiastic about drawing houses and last Saturday we went to make sketches in our neighborhood….

Culemborg

After having lived in Culemborg for 15 years, I finally drew its best known building: the historic town hall. Nu ik 15 jaar in Culemborg woon, werd het wel eens tijd om het bekendste gebouw van de stad te tekenen, het historische stadhuis.

Rain or no rain – Regen of niet?

This is the view on Everdingen (mostly hidden behind the dike alond the River Lek). When I started the drawing there was a clear blue sky with a bright sun. All of a sudden, the lights went out and it looked as if a huge…

Engeland (3/3)

In this final episode of my holiday report we will go to sea. Strangely enough, the sea itself is almost completely lacking on my sketches. In deze laatste aflevering van mijn vakantieverslag gaan we naar zee. Vreemd genoeg is de zee zelf vrijwel afwezig op…

Zutphen

Yesterday I went to a sketch day of the Gelderland Urban Sketchers in Zutphen. Because it was very hot, we not only looked for beautiful views to sketch, but also for shadow. The sketch above was made in the oddly named Naadzak street, still early…

Another spring post: blossoming trees in Culemborg. I passed this street last Thursday and these magnificent trees screamed to be drawn. So I returned Friday. En weer een lente-achtig bericht: bloesem in Culemborg. Ik fietste donderdag door deze straat en de schitterende bomen schreeuwden erom…
