Drawing a Dutch landscape

Dutch landscape

Every now and than when it is nice weather and I have some spare time, I get on my bike for a ride around the countryside. Because just minutes around the corner from where I live, you can find yourself in a typical Dutch landscape, named a ‘polder’. As you may or may not know Holland is extremely flat, and these flatlands are called ‘polders’ in Dutch.
Although I miss having mountains on my doorstep, I really love these ‘flatlands’ and always bring my sketchbook, for I never know what I might find.

 

This scenery is near Leiden in Zoeterwoude Dorp. Absolutely a perfect spot to draw!
