Amsterdam is such a delightful city, full of incredible architecture, history, amazing art, design, and of course, delicious street food! I can still taste the warm stroopwafle and poffertjes. It didn’t stop raining during our stay – our plans for a bike ride around the city were thwarted – but armed with our umbrellas, we managed to walk absolutely everywhere.
I love these colourful gouache paintings by French illustrator Léa Maupetit. I love the playfulness and soft, organic lines that are in each of her artworks.
I was so inspired that I popped down to my local craft store and picked up a range of gouache paints to play with and buhbow… it seems that my Year 12 art lessons didn’t stick.
You can see more of Léa’s work here.
I’ve just started settling back into work after spending the Christmas break relaxing in Byron Bay and Melbourne with Ryan and our friends Mark and Mon. Traveling with a group is always more fun! Here’s a peek into our Summer break full of aperol, trips to the beach and snoozes.
