Hi there lovely ones… are you there?! I appologize for not visiting you last week. Day’s fly by and before I know it, it’s another Wednesday. I DID, however, visited Jan (LLJ) last weekend and saw all the pictures of the anniversary-crop – what a fantastic day you girls must have had!
And now it’s on to the regular desk-sharing again… here’s mine.
Last week, Elizabeth (Altered Book Lover) asked me “(…) what is the “thing” to the right of your water? It is metal and has “curls” on it. Looks like it’s in back of a tuna type can.” The ‘thing’ (I don’t know what it’s called either) wasn’t in use last week so I understand your curiosity Elizabeth… with the brushes hanging in, it’s purpose becomes more clear…
It’s for hanging wet brushes so they can drip and dry…
The day that some (a lot) of you were at the crop, I spend the afternoon with my former neighbour Frederika and we went into town to go ‘Urban Sketching.’ There was a choir-festival in town and there were all kind of choirs (pop, a capella, classic, religious) on every corner and square. We visited the old Abbey and sat in the beautiful, botanical garden courtyard while behind our backs, in the old course of the Abbey, a choir was singing. Here’s a photo of Frederika (see the people behind the windows? That’s where the choir sang..)
This is the scenery she’s sketching.
And here’s the sketch she made.
Later, we went to the Abbey-square where they put up tables where we could sit, drink coffee and I pulled out my watercolors.
It was a sunny day and it was so nice to sit under the big trees, watch the people and listen to the choir.
It tried to capture the ‘feel’ of this scenery in a sketch
We had a wonderful day, Frederika and I. We will defenitely do this again someday soon! And since I got enthusiastic about “Urban Sketching,” there is a Quirky Dutch Summer post in the make about this topic. Speaking about Quirky Dutch Summer…
It’s creative, it’s inspiring, it’s educational, it’s fun and it’s for free!
YOU DON’T WANNA MISS IT!!! (see top menu of this blog or click the link.)
