My work is based on a technique called Zen drawing. I have written two hardcover books that have been published in several editions. The Dutch title is called 'het Zen tekenboek' and is about to be published in a new edition (including watercolors) with publishing company Edicola in Holland. I wrote an English version called ‘The Zendrawing Pack’ together with Willem Radder which is published by Rockpoint publishers (Quarto publishing group UK) an dis available in the USA and other English speaking countries. All books are also available as ebooks on a variety of e-readers and can be bought via Amazon, Kobo and in the Apple ibooks store.

 

Zen drawing is a very relaxed way of (realistic) drawing. Not great with a pencil? Don't worry, everyone can learn to draw this way and you don't need any special talent or class. For any level of artist, from a beginner with little talent to an illustration expert. 'Het Zen tekenboek' and 'the Zen Drawing Pack' are  not about making perfect pictures, it is about the experience of drawing, finding inspiration, and connecting to the world around you. Add soul to your sketches by ignoring conventional drawing techniques and focus on really seeing your subject. Zendrawing can also help you achieve a meditative state just by changing the way you see a subject, and allow your hands to follow the movement of your eyes. When you trust your own drawing reflex, the art that you create will become more expressive and beautiful than what you've done before.
