A sketch from yesterday. Even though it was very cold, I wanted to draw the chapel of Lemiers.
It ranks among the oldest churches in the Netherlands, about the 11th century.
But then I noticed the car and traditional farmcourtyard next to it, which was more interesting.

I used prepared paper: a thin layer of acrylic binder. Waterproof ink and watercolour don't stick, and water dries very slowly, which gives uncontrollable effects. That's why I used watercolourpencil.

Lemiers is a funny tiny village. It lies partly in the Netherlands, partly in Germany.
The German border is just 10 meters behind this farm.
