Urban Sketchers Luxembourg: Across the ruins of the Mansfeld Castle in Clausen...:

This Saturday, during the "Journées du Patrimoine", we had the chance to access the protected site of the "Mansfeldschlass" in Luxembourg-Clausen.
We have been sketching while visitors were guided across the site by volunteers of the Service des Sites et Monuments Nationaux.
A very few stones remain, lots have been modified in the time by the common people who lived there afterward. Hard to imagine how famous this place was at the time... with fountains, gardens and foreign animals.
After that, as usual, we took a glass, this time at the "Café Deieregaard" nearby, and other subjects to sketch...
Funny time!

USk FRANCE - JULY 2015

To illustrate the header of their blog during July 2015, Lolo Wagner and the board of Urban Sketchers FRANCE made me the honor to choose one of the sketches I made during the symposium in Strasbourg.

That was a great pleasure for me! Thank you very much!

KYOTO July 2015

Despite the last intensive week of work in Kyoto, we spent a quiet hour in the Kitano Tenmangu Temples Garden, just enough to allow myself one sketch... The week was saved!

ROMA, SKETCHES FROM 1994...

I did these sketches in 1994 for an architecture guide written by François Nizet and published at the time by Casterman. The original edition is not available anymore but it might be re-published in a new layout by Mardaga in a few months, after the one on Brussel... to be followed.

BRUXELLES 22/02/2015, working on the architecture guide for months...

I'm working with Jos Vanden Breeden (Sint Lukas Archive) on an architectural guide for Brussel that will be published by Mardaga Edition at the end of this year.
As co-autor I will make all the sketches to illustrate the buildings... I count 300 pieces for the moment and I'm far to finish...
