Beek – 11-06-19

This drawing complements the previous Beek (30-05-19) drawing in such respect that in this one the view is directed to the extension of the path I was walking on. Mount Devil (Duivelsberg) is to the left at the other side of the meadows in the front. The challenge was to capture the leafy shadows on the path that seemed entwined with the waving grasses next to it. I also wanted to capture the flow of the grasses corresponding to the waving tree branches.

About corneakkers

1969, born in Nijmegen. My work can be seen in many countries all over the world. I employ a variety of styles that all have one thing in common: the ever search for the light on phenomena and all the shadows and light planes they block in. My favorites in doing so are oil paint, dry pastel and graphite pencil. It is not the form or the theme that counts but the way planes of certain tonal quality vary and block in the lights. Colours are relatively unimportant and can take on whatever scheme. It is the tonal quality that is ever present in my work, creating the illusion of depth and mass on a flat 2d-plane. I combine figurative work with the search for abstraction because neither in extremo can provide the desired art statement the public expects from an artist. Besides all that, exaggeration and deviation is the standard and results in a typical use of a strong colour scheme and a hugh tonal bandwith, in order to create art that, when the canvas or paper would be torn into pieces, in essence still would be recognizable.

  1. Having read this I thought it was extremely enlightening. I appreciate you taking the time and energy to put this content together. I once again find myself spending way too much time both reading and commenting. But so what, it was still worthwhile!
