Drawings of everyday life

View on the river Merwede

View at the river Merwede from my parent's attic
I somehow lost the habit of drawing every day. Well, I almost never drew every day, but the intention of drawing every day made me draw at least 3 or 4 times a week. The last weeks I forgot to draw even those 3 or 4 times though. Then I remembered Julia Kay and her habit of drawing every day. So I took my journal and didn’t think about what I could draw, didn’t look at Flickr, email, twitter, FB, newspapers and other digital and analog distractions, and started to draw the view I saw regularly the first 18 years of my life. It is the view from my parents house on the river the Merwede.

  6. It is so easy to do…getting out of the habit that is. I’ve done it many times. You would think that with as much satisfaction I get from doing it, that it would be a hard habit to break!

    Wonderful sketch! Your parents have lovely windows and view!!
