O Lisbon, where art thou?

I left Lisbon ten weeks ago.  I am working on a series of paintings. The starting point are the pictures I took in Lisbon.

England, back to school!

Last week I visited England, with a few collegues. For a whole week we went back to school. To improve our English and to learn new skills which we can implant in our teaching. Hard work and we only had two times the opportunity to visit the country a little.

I didn’t take my camera with me, so these pictures were taken with my cell.

When taking this one, I thought of the old English gardens, and some English painters, like Constable. The lions are lying on a platform, on both sides of the palmtree in the middle.

And this is also Lisbon. A picture a took walking along the river. It’s a part of the bridge, that crosses the Tague

I was not present at the time, but I think these drawings where made approximately one hour after Charles Darwin published his book “On the origin of species”, in 1859.

By the way, these drawings are for sale. If you do buy them, I will donate the money to charity:  “SAVE THE DINOSAUR”.

Promise.
