A Weekend in Belgium

So, just back from a few days away from it all. And this time, I not only took paper and drawing equipment with me, but I even managed to sit down about an hour each day to draw something.

By the way, this is a great idea to experience your holiday in an extremely concentrated fashion, but it has basically no social component to it, especially if your spouse is not an artist like you. So be warned, take your time, but don’t take too much of her time.

Anyhow, you will see here, a scene in a restaurant, some sketches of 17th and 19th century Flemish Masters’ paintings from the Groeninge museum in Brugge/Bruges and scene from a church bench (opposite an antique book shop which wasn’t open on any of the days we were in Brugge, unfortunately, as they had books on Raphael’s drawings and all types of other hilariously gorgeous exhibits, gahhh!). Furthermore, showing here are a few pages from the breakfast buffet and a view from the hotel room, testing my perspective skills.
