Journal - Urban sketches 2

Last week I shared a few of my urban sketches. Here's a few more:

This is the square around the corner. There was a fun festival going on that week, so a few caravans were parked in there (at night they were used for selling drinks and snacks). With the planted palm trees on the square, and the morning sun, I almost felt like I wasn't in Amsterdam when I sat down to draw this morning sketch, but somewhere on a southern vacation!

I got a bit frustrated by not being able to draw the palm trees the right way in the first drawing, so I focused on the building on the other side of the street and drew this.
This was a very relaxing sketch, done in the Jordaan in Amsterdam
