Football, world championship. Our Dutch team reached the finals yesterday evening, against Uruguay, 2-3. Next sunday it’s against Germany or Spain.
I made the sketch during the last minutes of the match.
Keukenhof Gardens in the Netherlands – Watercolour and Inktense pencils on a watercolour Moleskine
I noticed some snowdrops peeking through the ground, the other day, and immediately was transported back to our visit to the Dutch Bulb fields a few years ago. I thought this painting might remind you folks that spring should not be too far away. This magnificent garden grows many hundreds of varieties of bulbs all in individual beds. The colour is spectacular. I loved the way they are set in trees, Margaret reckons I paid more attention to the trees than the flowers. She’s right. I know it’s wrong! I promise to seek professional help.
