Valencia, Spain. Check out my series of urban sketches below!
Hi! Thank you for visiting my website. My name is Emma Bijloos (pronounced 'By-lohs'), and I'm a visual artist and ‘urban sketcher’ based in The Hague, The Netherlands. My art inspiration and ideas come largely from the natural world - people, landscapes - and I love to work from life.
As an urban sketcher I’m experienced in drawing (and painting) on location, capturing what I see and hear from direct observation. I'm a fly-on-the-wall during events, meetings and workshops, creating a live documentation in the form of on location drawings.
At the same time, I’ve done several custom-made portraits and landscape paintings working from second-hand images in my studio. I work with a range of media, mostly watercolors, pen and ink, and pencil.
