Two sketches in restricted colours. I made these a few weeks ago, but didn't post them yet. It was just a rural scene, I had parked my car with the idea of drawings a castle. But I couldn't get a decent view, so I decided to turn around and sketch the view. With some nice music on my car radio.

Lviv, chickenlegs

Lviv, a woman selling chickenlegs on the street. Old local farmers will arrive in towns like these with small busses, and try to sell their home grown products on the street. This was drawn early mornig, about 7.00.

Lviv, foodmarket

Lviv, foodmarket. There was a large foodmarket just 5 minutes from our hotel. I went there in the early morning, at 6.45, before breakfast with my collegues. The merchants were building up their stalls. There were covered parts (where most visitors had their masks on due to Corona), and outside alleys. These got more crowded during the sketch. This is at the entrance of the (covered) meatpart, they mainly sold bread and cakes here.

Lviv Hotel Nota Bene


I just returned from a businesstrip. It seems like years ago that I went abroad on business.

In this case the Ukraine, Lviv, on western part of the country, near the Polish border. A really beautiful city, lovely architecture, friendly people, good food and drink, and fine collegues. This is the view from my hotel room, Hotel Nota Bene. An excellent hotel.

Chevrolet Apache

Out drawing again. I noticed this rusty old Chevrolet pickup alongside of the road in a neighbouring village, Hulsberg. The proud owner was sitting behind it, in front of his house. He showed me the car and it's engine as well. A regular beauty. fro 1960.

It was hot and the paper was in the sun, that's why the colours didn't come out like I wanted.
