Rotterdam, the white house

Gertie ad I spent a few days in the Randstad. We had a nice hotel in Delft, visited Delft, Den Haag (The Hague), Scheveningen and Rotterdam. We had lovely  late autumn weather, even goood enough to sit outside on terraces. This is the view from a terrace in the old harbour in Rotterdam, featuring the "White house" (one of the few buildings that survived the bombardment of Rotterdam in 1940).

Vaesrade, more Bottelegats


Two sketches of the country road on the hills above Vaesrade. I stood on the same location, one was drawn looking to the west (the horses), one to the east (the trees).

Vaesrade, Bottelegats

This afternoon. Sketching on an old "hollow" countryroad near my house. This road is old, they found remnants of an old Roman villa just a little further down this road.

Live Model session


Yesterday, painting from live model again, in the studio of Annemiek. We had to improvise in the style of Hans Olsthoorn. Strong lines, lively coloured colourfields in dimmed colours, and the importance of compostion.

Delft: oude kerk

The Old Church in Delft. Urban sketchers Netherlands organized a National sketchday, last saturday. 

It was good to meet old and new friends again. We had over 100 sketchers. Unfortunately it started to rain in the early afternoon, but at that point I was sitting at the terrace of the Delft Brouwhuis, in full view of the ancient walls of the "Old church".
