personal drawings


The beginning

The idea to make personal drawings in addition to the Landscapes in Wool came about when my brothers and sisters and I were looking for something original for my father's funeral card. My father was a great sailing enthusiast and his home port and town of birth was Hoorn. I made a drawing of his boat with the Hoofdtoren van Hoorn in the background. The reactions to the card were very enthusiastic and the original drawing hangs framed at my mother's as a nice memory. Would you also like a personal pen drawing of something that is dear to you or that you keep good memories of? Then read on.


An example

Someone asked me if I could make a drawing of his old A-Ford. He sent me a picture of his oldtimer and I drew it with the famous Kinderdijk in the background. That seemed nice to me because he told me that he sometimes drives his old car there.

This is a fragment of a drawing of a T-Ford with an old shipyard in the background. Of course you can also put forward your own ideas for the background. Think, for example, of the Zaanse Schans, the bulb fields or perhaps an old factory or a mountain road in France.

The technique I use is called 'washed pen drawing'. Pen, ink and watercolors and some fine brushes are my tools. The colors I use match the character of this 'old' technique. The size of the drawing is about half A4 and a maximum of 24x17cm. The drawing is delivered in a simple passe-partout of A4 format and framed on request in a beautiful neutral wooden frame.
