GKC Hulsberg, christmas card


I made this painting for the Christmas greetings card for the choir I sing in (well, the last rehearsal was already 9 months ago). The board decided for a colourfull card with autumn colours, as counterweight to all those dreary grey days and depressing Corona newsitems. The choir would have celebrated its 175th year. But unfortunately no festivities were possible this year, maybe next year.

A try to draw famous people, to see if I can really make resemblances.

Portrait of a man

Portrait of a man, based on a picture found on the Internet, I can't recall who made it. Fountain pen, I wash the ink before it's dry with a waterbrush. I found the original photographer: Jim Zuckerman.

Kolleberg, Sittard

Went out this morning by bike, as my knee is still not okay. It was cold, but not too harsh. Made this quick sketch in Sittard, a small chapel on the Kolleberg (which means translated: hill of the witches).
