On the street
A smaller crowd on the street. What is it about? A demo of how to carry your bag? Advertising for bags? People who have mixed up their bags? Or is it Pia in the front who thinks she is much prettier then Eva to the left and Lars to the right is falling in love with a passing blonde?

Gallery of women portraits

Gallery of women portraits
All these ladies have names: Lisa, Esther, Eva, Kate, Jenny, Helen....
And even more, they have got a life and have something from that life to share with you. A little story, an opinion or just an attitude.

I love doing those caricature portraits. It's people I meet in the street, restaurants, station or shopping malls. Some of them I know but most of them are anonymous to me. I give them a name and suddenly they come to live in my fantasy and they tell me things from their lives. And that is what I want to communicate to you...

A snapshot from a bus stop, people waiting in line.

The girl with the doll stroller knows what she wants: The doll must sit in the front off the bus, on a seat of her own - otherwise the doll will throw up because she gets carsick.

The dog likes to chew on shoes, especially if they smell.

The guy at the front is keen on timing. He will push the bus driver if he doesn't keep time.

Queuing can be a passion

Queuing can be a passion is a sketch by artist and illustrator Artmagenta
Sometimes queues are so attractive that people queues without knowing where the line leads.
Queuing is a phenomenon well worth a study or two. There are mathematical formulas for the waiting times, service times, the expected number of people in a queue, etc. But even more interesting is to study the people in the queue and the various sorts of queues; to the bus, to the pay cash, the bank, the roller coaster, to the arena. Sometimes queues are so attractive that people queues without knowing where the line leads.

In the beer garden

Beer gardens can accommodate a lot of interesting scenery.

Can you see the lady in the background that makes the thumbs down? I don't know why. I don't think it is the food she complains about.
The blonde in the foreground seems a bit in love with the waiter.
Two jackdaws guard their territory. As soon as someone leaves a table there is a chance for a meal.
The man with the chin beard seems a little strict. A nice lady companion though.

On the Street: 
It was a nice weather for a Sunday walk. People like to walk with no destination, in parks or on the streets.

I like the combination of those tight jeans and red high heel pumps.
