Delft

My wife and I had a nice long weekend in Delft, The Hague and Scheveningen. The weather was fantastic. I sketched this while drinking coffee on a terrace on the Beestenmarkt in Delft, you can see the "new church" (it's what you call new....it dates back to 14-15th century....) through the trees. It's the second highest churchtower of the Netherlands, the one of Utrecht (see the sketch of a week ago) is the highest.
Een lang weekend met Gertie naar het westen, Delft en Den Haag. Dit is geschetst vanaf het terras op de Beestenmarkt in Delft, je kunt de toren van de Nieuwe kerk nog net door de bomen zien.

Beautiful sketch, with a little touch of color ! I like the way you drew the windows.

To be honest, I didn't like the effect on paper at first, but on the screen it somehow looks OK.

superbe! j'aime beaucoup ce dessin, on sent le beau temps!!! et j'aime aussi beaucoup comment tu as fait les personnages!
quelle est la taille de ce dessin?

Merci Pascal, c'est fait dans une moleskine aquarelle 13x20cm. Papier excellent (200 grammes) et assez portable. Presque tous mes dessins sont faites dans cette type de cahier.

Geweldige schets! Zeer geslaagd is ook de kleur groen ten opzichte van het zwart/wit van de gebouwen en de personen op de voorgrond!

I like the green touches. They add movement to graphic sketch. I like so muck to sketch the city, but windows drive me crazy))
