Dear everyone,
Sorry, but I won't be able to make it after all. I am moving to Brussels and will be buried in between boxes. Have fun though!
Best, Anna Denise

Mattianelli, yes, the AKO at one of the exits at the front, basically in front of it.

Jacob, Femke will probably be joining too :-)

Excellent! Looking forward to a day of sketching!

Also big thanks from me Ayal, and nice to meet you all & your drawings! Sorry I had to leave early, was a bit last minute planning :) . Next time in The Hague indeed!

Here's my sketch of the bridge behind Nieuwmarkt. I still smell the peculiar blend of fish and other market products while standing there...Image

We had our first sketchcrawl in Amsterdam (in the Netherlands in fact I think), and enjoyed it a lot! It was a great group! There were six of us; Maria, Josette, Kim, Jacob, Femke and me (Ayal). It really is a lot of fun, walking around and sketching, taking breaks and looking at eachothers work.

In short, we went from central station to Nieuwmarkt, sketched there, had a cup of coffee, and when it seemed to start to rain we went to the public library to sketch there, and we ended the day there.

Here are some pictures, I'll upload my drawings in a separate post.

Anyway, nice sketches everybody!

Mattianelli, wow, great drawings!!! I need to draw more carefully, and add stronger contrast, like you do. Good stuff! What was the size of your sketchbook?

We missed you at the contact point, so we walked past VVV also, but didn't find you (nobody responded to me waving a sketchbook :-) ). Pity we missed you, hope you'll be able to join next time :-) Kim, Maria and Josette are from The Hague, and we thought it would be nice to go to different cities each time.

Nice drawings!!!
Ayal
