The first thing you need to know is: You don't need drawing skills! I draw Utrecht is suitable for every drawing level. I will help you out. I give advice and show easy and more difficult options. We walk approximately 2,5 kilometers in the center of Utrecht. We are in several very beautiful places to draw your own personal big 'greetings from Utrecht postcard'. Discover the city in a different way. Not just wandering around, but sitting for a moment to draw what you see. A relaxing experience in a lively city. We start with a Polaroid of yours and place it in the middle of a sheet of A4 size paper. Around the Polaroid we draw typical items from Utrecht such as: the Dom tower, architectural ornaments, decorative elements from nature, Miffy, bicycles, etc. We draw in a simple and fast way. I give advice for 'hand lettering' (writing in a nice way). Ultimately you have your own handmade 'Greetings from Utrecht postcard'. You can take a photo of it to put on social media and you can also put it in the letterbox to send it to your loved one.
With great pleasure I have been living in Utrecht for more than 20 years. I love Utrecht! I would like to show you this beautiful and great city by drawing elements from this city. I'm a graphic designer for more than 15 years. I love to do styling and photography and i followed courses in drawing, painting and handlettering.
