Utrecht flower market

I visited the Utrecht flower market on the Janskerkhof on Saturday. There was a great atmosphere and an amazing selection of flowers and plants. I sat with a coffee for a time and watched the visitors and then stood amongst the shoppers and sketched very quickly. Can’t believe the drop in temperature! I should have worn an extra layer. I left with a large bouquet of flowers and these drawings.

Borough Market


I enjoy visiting Borough market throughout the year. It’s impossible to visit without sampling food from at least one of the stalls. I generally can’t resist queuing up for a burger. There’s a great atmosphere as well as wonderful food and drink. It does get touristy but jostling through the crowds is all part of the experience. I’ve done a number of sketches here including bigger drawings that can be seen in the ‘Drawings’ section of my website. Whilst I was doing one of my larger drawings, an elderly lady came and sat next to me on a bench and gave me advice on how to use light. I don’t think she was overly impressed with my efforts!
