On this Queensday I was painting portraits in Amsterdam’s Vondelpark again. This time with even more artists – Henrik joined, Svetlana reserved the spot and took pictures and Ingeborg and Renske were drawing also. Which is nice – it attracts people to watch and makes them want a portrait too.
Even though we were all really exhausted, the whole thing was great fun. I’m looking forward for the next time.
Here we’re setting up the spot.
We could only start late, since the rain and cold weather kept people away…
…but finally we got some models.
Henrik proved popular with the female crowd. I don’t approve!
Sometimes one has to take desperate measures to get those little brats to pose. The babies of today show no discipline!
And the following are some of the portraits, unfortunately I did not take photos of every one I made.
She was just awesome – nice model and she lent me her child when the authorities came (before 12 one has to have a child when entering). Thanks a lot :)
