Paris, Rue du Bac

We were sitting on a terrace near the Gare d'Orsay, where I sketched an artist who was selling his own work, on the bank of the Seine. It was hot and he sat in the shade of the roadsign. Every 10 minutes he had to move to stay in the shade. Parijs, deze tekenaar zocht de schaduw, aan de oevers van de Seine.

Paris, Pont des arts

Paris, the "Pont des arts". Each evening young people would sit on the bridge over the Seine and picknick in the warm evening sun. The Louvre on one side, the École des beaux arts on the other. Boats below. Spanish guitars. Friends, food and wine. How romantic can you get.

Sofia Loka

Drawing of the furnace of the stone wool insulation plant of Sofia Loka, Slovenija. Knauf. The steel Cupola melts the stone up to 1700 degrees. The fluid stone falls on the spinners, fast rotating wheels, thus forming fibers. Tekening van de steenwol oven in Sofia Loka, Slovenië. It was no pleasure making the drawing: fumes, wind, heat and ear splitting noise.

USS West Virginia

Experimenting with two kinds of brushpens, both Pentel, waterproof and non-waterproof. I used a famous picture of the attack on Pearl Harbour, the USS West Virginia. Actually an idea of Bea Meira. Uittesten van twee soorten brushpens; een tekening van een gezonken schip bij Pearl Harbour.
