Nijntje Pleintje in Utrecht

Todays' sketch (15 min.): the 'Nijntje Pleintje' in Utrecht. Named after Dick Bruna's famous little rabbit. The second one is colored in PS.

The sketching goes on

While sketching a part of the city (again) I noticed I lost my patience, this one's made more quickly (10-15 min.). Since I don't have an A3 scanner, I had to squeeze 2 A4 scans into 1, and then tried to smooth out the overlapping edges.
Also 2 colored versions done in PS as an experiment.

Life drawings continued...

A quick sketch (1-2 min.) from tonight's life-drawing class.


Another try at making a drawing using only a few colours.

Another cityscape

Drawing cityscapes really makes you appreciate the town you live in! I added some colour in PS.

More work!

Today I set out to practise more on drawing cityscapes, but due to the cold weather my line was 'shaky'. I coloured the sketch in PS.

I often collect interesting photographs from magazines of newspapers. I like the dramatic pose of the woman!

Two images from 'Gloria van Goes'; an old comicbook written by Paul Deckers and illustrated by Piet Wijn. Piet Wijn was one of Hollands greatest comicartists.

New life drawings

The first one's a random sketch, the other two new life drawings. I plan to practise more on how to draw large layouts.

Explorational sketches

Earlier I was looking for the right design of a 'somewhat depressed mom', for a project I'm working on with a friend. Here are sketches of family-pictures for the same project. Notice the mom is still happy here..:)

+ a random sketch I like...
