Amsterdam rain

Cycling through the Amsterdam rain is no fun. This picture is about that. In the basket in front of you is your shopping from Albert Heijn. It wasn’t raining when you got to the supermarket, but it’s chucking it down now. Going home in the rain is better than going out in the rain though. Better by kilometres.

Plaza de Isabel II

Drawing of Plaza de Isabel II in Madrid.

The right side of the drawing is made in situ, but it was taking way too long so I drew the left side back at the hotel from a photo on my phone.

When I was 20 I lived in Madrid for about a year. This was my first time back.
