Most Europeans travel to Amsterdam once or twice when they are young for obvious reasons.
I have never been to the capital of the Netherlands before, which I kind of regret.

Besides whole museums devoted to master painters like Rembrandt and Van Gogh, you will find a beautiful idyllic landscape with windmills and green pastures, which makes it easy to imagine how this country has been a source of inspiration for the most skillful artists ever.

Landscape drawing can be tricky. How much detail do you need to draw to create an accurate picture of the place?
These small drawings show the idyllic Austrian “Salzkammergut” region.

There is a beautiful little village at the “Traunsee”, called “Traunkirchen”, which I like to visit all year round.

St.Wolfgang is probably one of the most popular ones with tourists because of its lake view and surrounding gentle hills and mountains.
At this time of the year it’s very quiet there as well…
