Castle of Terworm

 Out sketching again. A little castle in my town, maybe 6 kilometers away, Terborg.

It's used as a wedding place, actually my daughter was married here. THere was a wedding going on, at a certain point the bride was posing for pictures, on the small drawbridge to the entrance, I managedto insert her in the drawing.

 Anoter try at a serious painting: based on the "Sam Drukker" style of working.

It's based on a picture by Ed van der Elsken, a couple somehere in Paris I think.

I decided to go for a dramatic colour: kobalt blue. This is after one evening of painting.

See where it gets me.

Maastricht, Faliezusterklooster

Yes, we did it again! Finally at last we were able to organize a Urban Sketching meeting, in Maastricht. We were with 10 sketchers, in a quiet park at the old city fortifications. I introduced some new sketchers to USk in and outs, and was able to make this drawing. Finally we enjoyed company at a terrace, renewing the lust for drawing. It felt good after a year.

People waiting outside the vaccination center (Mecc Maastricht), for their partners to receive a Covid 19 vaccination. My wife was there to receive hers; and I took the 15 minute opportunity to make this quick sketch.
