First: we heard that there was a severe earthquake in Zakyntos (6,7), less than a week after we were there! I think we were very lucky not to have been there just a week later.
The top sketch is from the oldest olive tree in the Mediterranean. Over 2000 years old, hard to imagine there trees lived to see Romans walking. The tree is located on the village square of Exo chora. Just a bit further we had a lunch on a high cliff, overlooking the sea. I did not want to draw the view, but was more interested in the strange watercolours of the sea, just below the cliff. So that's what I drew.

It was nice weather, and as the tourist season was slowly coming to an end, it was not so crowded.
Here two scenes, a view of the city of Zakynthos itself, and a view of a little chapel on the harbour of Agios Sostis (famous for its turtles, which we did not see as it was after their breeding season).

At the edges of the town there are often some less attractive spots, with abandoned buildings or sloppy scrapyards. Or a cluttered boat repair shop. Always nice for a quick sketch.

But last Sunday we were sitting on the terrace, the weather was nice, and I saw these drawings by Dan Slavinsky. It inspired me to make this drawing. I started drawing the wing, and the drawing evolved itself.

Rotterdam, last Saturday.
I was part of a team that organized the national Sketchday in Rotterdam, together with Jeffrey, Peter and Miryam. There were more than 80 participants, 5 workshops, and a dinner for almost 40 people.
the weather was perfect, and we had a terrific time, meeting and talking to old friends and a few new ones.
In between I had some time to sketch: as we were near the Cube-houses on th Blaak, I could not avoid to draw them. A drama of perspective, all angles and unusual vanishing points, but I still think it came out okay. Hard to believe these are actually houses, and people live in them....

We were lucky that we had special permission to draw in between the planes.
These are old training planes, made in Belgium.
And here e few more impressions of the motor of a 1942 Boeing Stearman and a plane for air acrobatics (the Red Devils).
