Drawing trees again today with Katsia in Het Twiske. Maybe not as many as I’d hoped for, but hey. Available now, by the way, as a print from Etsy.
Amsterdam welcomes you!
A drawing in pen, ink, pencil, crayon and gel pen.
Two ink sketches at Amsterdam’s Hortus Botanicus today.
Sketch at Café ‘t Sluisje today with Katsiaryna.
Two drawings at NDSM yesterday. Testing out a new sketchbook with Katsia.
Sketching at NDSM on Saturday with the Amsterdam Urban Sketchers. I realised just how rusty I’ve got at sketching. When I lived in Amsterdam, I wouldn’t think twice about whipping the sketchbook out.
Pencil and pen drawings from Amsterdam last weekend. 2 from Saturday’s meetup at Museumcafé Mokum, and 3 from the Sktchy meetup in Westerpark on Sunday.
Drawing of a sunbathing dog at Gail’s place in Sloterdijk yesterday. Staffy he’s called. Drawn in pencil, gel pen, graphite, dry ink brush, and coloured pencil.
Cycling through the Amsterdam rain is no fun.
If you’re cycling from Zaandam to Amsterdam (which takes about 45 minutes and includes a ferry) you’ll go through a small underpass just before you reach the Hembrug ferry point. As you emerge from the underpass, these sweeping diagonal lines leap out at you. This is what you see here. This is actually the 4th attempt at this picture, each time whittling it down more and more. Eventually drawn in Kyle brushes.
