Check out ‘The Art of the Sketchbook’ by Sandu Publishing, which has a few pages on my sketchbook stuff from the last couple of years.
Drawing of Lange Dyk, which is near where I live in Westhoek. Blue ballpoint pen with isopropanol, plus gel pen and blue pencil.
Sketch over a bite to eat at Stania State in North Friesland today. Nice.
Sketch of St Jacobiparochie from Oudebildtdijk (now there’s a mouthful for anyone who’s not Dutch.) This is the view from the front of my house. Drawn and painted in ink, pencil, colour pencil, graphite, and gel pen.
Sketching at NDSM on Saturday with the Amsterdam Urban Sketchers—just like in the good old days of 2014-5. A chance at least to catch up on Dudley’s hair, and hang with some sketchers. But I realised just how rusty I’ve got at sketching. When I lived in Amsterdam, I wouldn’t think twice about whipping it out. The sketchbook, that is.
With drawing, the more you do, the easier it gets. That’s the thing. But if you leave it for a bit…
Somewhere in Groningen from yesterday’s sketchcrawl with the Urban Sketchers Netherlands. It was pretty cold, so I didn’t sketch or crawl too much. But I found a sweet spot in a cafe, and drew this from the window.
‘Cycling on Prins Hendrikkade’—an art print at 23×16 inches from Society 6 to someone somewhere. I don’t know who actually buys things on Society 6, unless they tell me. But thank you whoever you are.
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.
Icelandic volcanoes. Well, I think they’re volcanoes. They might just be mountains. Sketchbook pages: ink, pencil, coloured pencil, gel pen and biro sketches from southern Iceland. Click them to look closer.
Ink, pen, pencil, coloured pencil sketch of Reykjavik from the hotel on Rauðarárstígur.
