Medieval Quarantine tower


Our Castle (Hoensbroek). This is the Plague tower, meant to quarantine the sick in medieval times. It wouldn't have enough room for these days.

It was cold outside, the watercolour would take a long time to dry.

I am not very fond of this drawing. It was cold and drizzling, I stood on the Market on Maastricht. A guy was waiting in front of a restaurant. They were preparing some food, for him to take to the customer.

Another try on watercolour. Same theme, thunderclouds. But now transposed on the view from the Harbour of Hellevoetsluis (translates as: the lock at the feet of the devil). Not made on location, but based on a picture I made some years ago.

It was cold in Thull.


It was cold this afternoon, just above freezing, with a strong wind. Watercold we call that here. But I really wanted to go out and draw something. This is a hill with footpath, the "Mulderwegske" in Thull, just 2 km from my house. The cold shows, I think.
