Sounds good! Coming up this Saturday, so where should we meet? Central Station? The big Library? Rembrandt Square? Dam Square? NDSM wharf? Artis zoo? Casa Rosso Sex Palace????

Anyone else out there coming?

I suppose we can meet in front of central station and see from there, crawl our way around?

Central station probably makes the most sense, being as central as it is and all...

Should we bring knee pads for all the crawling while we're sketching?

Dman, kneepads a must, and yellow coats so we don't lose each other :-) (although losing each other is going to be hard when we can only move at crawl speed).

Ok, proposal; 11:00 in front of the AKO outside (by the taxis). I'll be the guy with the ridiculous A3-size sketch board in my hand. Good plan?

-- Jacob, I really like your perspectives and "melting" lines.
Your image sections are wonderful.

Hartelijk bedankt,

Jacob,
Your work captures the mood and reality so well (so quickly?) Nice. Nice.

Was great being out sketching again, nice day with Jacob and Dudley :-) We went to the public library as it rained a bit. I filled one A3-size page with little impressions of what I saw inside, in pencil. Below is that page processed a bit:

Was great fun again, we should do this more often!
