I was never to draw very realistically (in my opinion). A few months back I got interested in calligraphy. These lead me to fountain pens wich led me to Parka Blogs and so on to Liz steel.
They showed me that I could actually draw the world around me and not be perfectly realistic.
About a day later I went to the art supply store and bought myself a basic watercolor set and paper.
Although it is still not that easy. Getting a good perspective can be very tricky. Not much later I found Jane Blundell she helped me a lot about colors. (At the moment I am looking into getting some new colors)
And that's a very short story about how I got into Urban sketching.

I sketched my sketching bag and a few of my tools. Still learning to judge the proportions. But for me this is a good start.
I found this bag in army surplus store for 12 euros. It's a bit thin but it'll do for now.
Made 1745 reform filled with de atramentis archive ink.
As of writing this I live alone in Belgium close to Antwerp in a small apartment .
I have been diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis in 2013 but with medication normal life becomes slowly possible. I love to cook, bake bread and trying to enjoying my life.
Thanks for stopping by and please check in whenever you want (the more, the better. ;-) )
