Draw what you know

Someone once said ; 'Draw what you know'. 

Last year I did a daily drawing for two weeks, which is something I had not before. ( But seriously need to pick up on again )  I live in the Netherlands, a country with a rich history in water management. I never really felt all that passionate about that sort of thing, until I saw a documentary about how we have learned to live with the water.  That struck a chord, and it instantly reminded me how much I loved going to the beach with my family when I was a kid. I had this thing for drawing lighthouses when I was younger. That was the main inspiration to start this daily routine. I really learned from this little journey and admit that it opened several doors to potential new projects, both personally and professionally.
