Art class 2

2nd lesson: we did portraits, using charcoal. No easy thing, as I am used to small Moleskine formats. To be honest, this drawing does not resemble, but at least I got the proportions OK. I count my blessings. Les 2: portretten met houtskool. Deze tekening lijkt niet erg op het model, maar de verhoudingen waren in ieder geval goed.

Art class 1

Portraits and human figures were always my weak point. Looking at the progress Rob Carey made, I decided for some action and joined an art class. Each saturday morning I will try some real life drawing under the guidance of Annemiek Jongen and the critical eyes of the rest of the class. I'll post regularly to show the progress. If any.
Dit jaar volg ik elke zaterdagmorgen een cursus portret en modeltekenen in Landgraaf. De menselijke figuur was in mijn tekeningen altijd al mijn zwakke punt. Les 1.

Green Day in Köln

The post-punkband "Green Day" in concert in Köln (Cologne).
I went there together with Mart and Rianne (my son and daughter). Probably the best rock concert I ever saw, better than the punkbands of my youth anyway. The energy of these guys. Incredible.
Gisteravond: concert van de post-punkband Green Day. Geweldig concert. Wat energie hebben die mannen!

Paris, Notre Dame

While sitting on the Pont des Arts (see below) a Maria procession passed under us. A little later, as we walked along the Siene towards the Notre dame, the procession floated by. 13 boats with pilgrims, a blue lighted Maria statue in artificial smoke, singing pilgrims, and loud prayers by the Bishop of Paris. And the brightly lit Notre Dame in the background (it was late evening). Quite surrealistic.
15 Augustus s' avonds: een Mariaprocessie op de Seine, net toen we voorbij de Notre dame wandelden.
