Illustration Friday Theater

This week's topic on Illustration Friday, Theater, swept me back into memory lane. I remembered the drawing I made for a local sundaypaper, back in the nineties.
Every week, for about two years, I made a drawing of a building or site in the city of Leiden. An editor gave me the subjects, because he had to write a short and interesting story about the history of the building or the site.
For instance the restauration of the 300 year old theater in Leiden: the Leidse Schouwburg. A beautifull restorated building and it's a pity that you can't see the inside of the theater on this drawing. When you ever have the opportunity to visit Holland, try to stop by at this theater. Most artists do also like this theater and its atmosphere very much. And that's the greatest recommendation, I think.

Thanks all for your comments.

@Brigitte: spijtig dat je de Leidse Schouwburg nog nooit bezocht hebt, maar wat niet is kan nog komen!
