More London. Some phonebooths on the corner of Russel square, next to our hotel. Peculiar: the floor of each of these booths was littered with quite explicit advertisement cards. http://renefijten.blogspot.com/
I visited London with my 17-year old son Mart. It’s different to visit a city with your son than with your wife, we could do nice boys things like visiting comic bookstores, gamehalls and science museums. Unfortunately no pubs. Here the icon of London, the Tower bridge, drawn from the South bank.
No sunny beaches this year, I renovated and insulated the attic of my house (from 1939). It took me and my son one week and a half to finish. Making the drawing only took 30 minutes; next time I will stop at that.
Last sunday this balloon ran out of gas, it flew over very low, barely missed our roof and landed in the field two houses down my street. Noone was hurt. If you see it next to a house you realise how big these things are. In the back the castle of Amstenrade.
Another sketch from the Cruise-In in Kerkrade. There was this beautiful, shiny blue, mean looking 50′s Mercury eight, converted into a “leadsled” Fountainpen and black paintbrush on watercolour moleskine. http://renefijten.blogspot.com/
Cruise-In meeting in Kerkrade (Netherlands); each Thursday evening a group of enthousiasts come together to show off their restored vintage old cars. Drawn and painted on location, but I did not get a lot of rest.
A laundromat in Tarbes (France); it was near midnight and the cold blue light from the shop made a nice contrast with the orange natrium streetlights. I tried to capture that light in this drawing.
