De Lakenhal – 16-08-19​

Last weekend I visited De Lakenhal at Leiden, Netherlands to see the exhibition ‘Rembrandt and the Golden Age’. Quite nice, also to see the refurbished museum. When I looked out the windows at the front of the building I was captured by the Oude Vest on which the light was filtered by the museum glass. It looked a little bit sinister and there were gloomy clouds in the sky which lead me to draw this one.


4th August 2019

Started a new painting tody, based on my previous drawing ‘Nude – 17-06-15’. After building my new website in July I longed for dragging myself from the screen to the wood panel and do this one, also because I feel an obligation to finally work out all of my ideas in graphite pencil onto wood panel and/or linen.
