cubistic cityscape graphite pencil drawing

Rotterdam – 24-07-19

In Voorburg I went through a park at the Spinozalaan when I came across some geese with their young. One of the parents always is on the lookout and this one was sizing me up. I liked the composition of the curved necks creating a rhythym in the wavy grass they were eating. My objective was to relate the trees at the back to the young geese. The buildings in the back (Het Zeilschip) i kept quite simple in order to keep the focus in the foreground.
