Eekhoorntje


This little squirrel was eating the nuts we left in the birdhouse in our garden. The birds did not seem to mind. Een eekhoorntje at de nootjes in het vogelhuisje; eigenlijk voor de vogels bedoeld, maar pimpelmeesjes bleven gewoon dooreten. Onze achtertuin op 1e kerstdag.

School in Brunssum


Brunssum, a sketch done on location, of an old schoolbuilding being torn down. It makes place for an annex to the hospital. There was still a little snow around. Sloop van het Delta-college gebouw, Brunssum

art class 10&11


Week 10 was pastels; I was not pleased with the result. Now moving to watercolour, experiments in wet-in-wet, that's more to my taste. Modeltekenen: de afgelopen week eindelijk aquarel: veel leuker dan pastel. Experimenten in nat-in-nat.

Weihnachtsmarkt


Yesterday I visited the Weihnachtsmarkt in Aachen. It was freezing. This is next to the reibekuchen und backfish stall Fuhrmann.
Gistermiddag op de Kerstmarkt in Aken. Vrieskoud, zelfs de Glühwein hielp niet meer.

Art class 8&9

The results of art class of two weeks ago was horrible, to be forgotten quickly.
But I kind of liked the drawing of last saturday: see above, a drawing of the teacher herself.
Drawing from life is very hard, also considering that I have to master new techniques like pastel as well.
Modeltekenen: die van twee weken geleden wil ik graag vergeten. Maar hierboven het resultaat van het afgelopen weekeinde.
