Sketching boats in Amsterdam

It’s a great thrill for me to have been selected to teach this coming July with an amazing group of instructors at the Urban Sketchers Symposium in Amsterdam. And I finally get to give a workshop on one of my favourite sketching subjects: boats!

My workshop location won’t be confirmed until closer to the date, but I hope to be near the National Maritime Museum, close to the replica of the three-masted “Amsterdam”. It’s always so much fun to sketch the details of these historic vessels, plus all the others in the surrounding harbour.

Symposium registration opens on Saturday, February 2, 2019 and workshop passes tend to sell out fast, so if you are thinking of attending, plan to register when it opens. You can read about workshop and sketching passes plus more details here.

    You seem to be following me. I was in Porto just before you and I was in Amsterdam in May. You will absolutely love Amsterdam. Have a wonderful trip. I’m looking forward to seeing the beautiful work you will create there. I really enjoyed your work from Sanibel. I’ve been there too.
