50s girl

I received some goodies at the symposium, one was ecoline markers (water soluble ink). Fantastic stuff. I tried it out in this 50s style portrait (based on a picture).

Windmill St. Hubertusmolen

This morning, driving between Schimmert and Beek, on the top of the hill, I made a quick sketch of this windmill. The St. Hubertusmolen. With windmills you have to be lucky, they head towards the wind. So view is not always good, you have to do it when it's turned correctly.
My radio played Air by J.S.Bach, that's how long it took to draw this.

Lievelde (Achterhoek)

We had a few nice days in one of the more rural areas of the Netherlands, the Achterhoek.
We stayed in this nice old farmhouse, now converted into a hotel.
I made this quick one during breakfast, siting in the warm sun on the terrace.
