Herman Dewit is a Belgian urban sketcher. He is well-known as one of the "founding fathers" of the folk music revival in Flanders and the Netherlands. However his life as a musician never kept him away from another passion: sketching and water colour painting. On the contrary: when travelling to play concerts in Belgium and abroad, he always carries a set of elementary tools and materials with him to capture landscapes, village views and people playing music. A beautiful selection of these travel impressions has now been compiled to form this Herman Dewit's art book.
