Behind the Dom Cathedral, (or the Dom Church, since it's no longer Catholic), is a lovely cloister garden where you can sit and ponder the day, enjoy the Gothic architecture, read, chat with a friend, or draw undisturbed. Frequently, I've seen either art or architecture students busy drawing the views in the cloister garden. Even on a dreary day, the cloister garden is still very interesting. 

Personally, I rather like drawing the detail of a portion of the arches.

As I'm very fond of visiting and drawing the Gothic cathedrals in Europe, being able to sketch the Dom Cathedral keeps me in practice :o)



tot ziens,
