The Peace Palace at The Hague – 04-02-19
The Peace Palace
Just outside the centre of The Hague (Den Haag) on the road to Scheveningen at the coast The Peace Palace is situated. It houses the The International Court of Justice of the United Nations. It is an impressive building and I had the privilige of visiting it for business and pleasure quite some times in the past, as a student and later as a lawyer. It is one of those few landmarks that is typical for The Hague, although the latter lacks a clear and sound cityscape.
Type of Rendering
The reference picture I used I took last year at the brink of spring. Since this (today – 4nd February 2019) was a particularly windy and cold day I used this motif in order to evoke spring I guess. I kept the building quite vague and I also sketched with a rough edge more that I am used to in previous drawings and decided such was more suited to work it towards a more impressionistic look than cubistic / roundish, even though some parts in the foreground show my initial roundism intentions. It looks a bit like the style employed in my drawing Leidschendam 11-04-19.
