Utrecht, the Netherlands

Postby evy » Sun Aug 28, 2005 2:28 pm

I too joined Sketchcrawl #4 from overhere (Utrecht, NL). Although I did it on my own, I had so much fun.

Image
08:30 am. A "warm up" session, which I did while waiting for the tram to go to the city center of Utrecht.

Image
09:45 am. The view of the dom (the church tower) as seen from the Stadhuisbrug (a bridge).

Image
10:20 am. Houses on the corner of Annastraat and Korte Minrebroederstraat, right across from the city hall square.

Image
11:00 am The view of the new city hall of Utrecht, as seen from Annastraat. The city hall is designed by the Spanish architect Enric Miralles. One of my favorite modern architecture in Holland. Beautiful building.

Image
01:00 pm. After lunch, I sat on the sidewalk across this charming port. It leads to a museum and a theatre.

Image
02:00 pm. Time for coffee. I sketched the view across the street, while standing inside a store (Brandmeester's) that sells quality coffee and thee on the Korte Jansstraat.

Image
03:30 pm. The view of the castle on Achter de Dom (a street) as seen from Voetiusstraat. The castle is part of the Dom church complex.

Image
05:00 pm. Last sketch before going home. I did this while standing on the platform waiting for the tram.

I am going to post a map to show the locations and more stories on my blog.
Cheers,

Evy

Beautiful work!
I really like the watercolors. It looks like a homemade book of water color paper...is it?

Thank you zipchips and PaintMonster.

Zipchips: I think the paper is handmade, from the quality it looks handmade. I bought the paper/book in Venice a long time ago, and had never used it until yesterday. And I can say that I like the quality very much.

PS. My blog is now updated and includes my sketch crawl sketches.
Cheers,



Evy

I sometimes think there is nothing so delightful as drawing.

Evy,
nice. I like the colored, but my favorite from this serie is the inside of the coffee/outside street. I like your use of parallal lines and patterns on that one. and it feels confy. One can see you're in Netherlands, you have drawn more bikes than cars :)
