In between the lines

15 / 100. Sometimes mindless doodling helps me think. Especially when it’s not directly related to the project I’m working on. Something about concentrating the mind without trying too hard?These figures are simply trying to fit in, or not?#100dayproject #100daychallenge #100daysofdrawing #drawingeveryday #drawingfromimagination #ballpointdrawing #fittingin #inbetweenthelines #mindlessdoodles

Delft Blue

12 / 100. A very quick sketch inspired by Delft Blue and the pepper and salt set I remember we had when I was a child. I was born and raised in Delft, a small city between Rotterdam and The Hague, with old houses and canals, just like you have in Amsterdam. I remember Japanese tourists asking to take a picture of me and my best friend at the time, on a Delft Blue, mosaic bench surrounded by tulips. I always found it a strange and funny idea to be appearing in someone’s photo album across the world, representing the Dutch. #100dayproject #100daychallenge #100daysofdrawing #delftblue #pepperandsalt #watercolour #aquarel #winsorandnewtonwatercolors

Drawing from observation in the underground in London

Day 7 / 100. Drawing from observation in the underground in London. The good thing is people usually sit very still. The lady sitting opposite me and in between the two man I drew on the left, did look at me suspiciously however. #100daychallenge #100dayproject #drawingeveryday #palominoblackwingpencil #pentelbrushpen #londonunderground #peoplewatching

Drawing with ballpoint

Day 5 / 100. Cue: drawing with a ballpoint. I know ballpoints are perfect for drawing hairy animals - so that’s what I did. I don’t think this hairy creature agrees with the recent weather change. In fact, it refuses to play until the sun comes out again. #100dayproject #100daysofdrawing #drawingeveryday #drawingwithballpoint #ballpointdrawing #hairyanimal #fuzzyanimals #furryanimals #notamused #refusingtomove
