A beautiful sunny day in Amsterdam. Arriving at Amsterdam Central Station I walked towards the Central Library to get a good view of St Nicholas Basilica. Often I draw in my small sketchbook first. I can play around with composition quickly with a few marks. If I don’t have a time limit I can start off a bit tight and generally my drawings loosen up the more I do. It’s always busy in the area with commuters and tourists arriving and departing. Also the cyclists, trams, buses and cars passing by. Afterwards I followed the trail of tourists towards Dam Square. Had planned to visit De Nieuwe Kerk and perhaps visit the current exhibition but sketched the fun fair instead.
