I’m got to Amsterdam a few days before the Urban Sketchers Symposium. It gives me the chance to check out the location and figure some last minute details on the workshop I’m teaching. And, there’s time to slip in some other sketches too.
Canal Houses everywhere. I love the detailing and the wonkiness of these houses. But most of all, I love the human scale of them.
The Waterlooplein Flea Market is where I’ll teach my workshop called Scavenged Sketches. So while I checked out my location and figured good spots to meet I sketched these two spreads with a bookseller and bicycle seller.
Once the symposium is in full swing, it’s hard to get much sketching done if you’re teaching, so I try to pull out my book and do a sketch at any meal I can. Here are a couple of lunch and coffee/tea sketches.
I look forward to viewing and enjoying your work and I am inspired by it. Thank you….
I’ll keep posting, John!
Enjoy your time sketching fellow member of the USk tribe in Amsterdam;
Thanks John, what a fantastic symposium.. now if only the weather would behave!
So great to be able to see the symposium through you, a great big thank you. I was at the first one in Portland and to this day I love my memories of it. Enjoy and thanks.
Don, we were JUST talking about you over dinner today: Cathy McAuliffe was telling us how you were the first sketcher she met in Portland… everyone says that was a magical symposium!
Terrific captures of Amsterdam! Hoping to see you and hug you before it’s all over.😘
