The build-up of ‘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.

A next session of my work in progress based on my drawing ‘Nude 17-06-15’. I experimented with color schemes and decided to add purples and blues to the mix because I found the orange and green to look a little bit to soggy.
Below you can see the build-up of my drawing ‘Sans titre – 08-08-19
This drawing depicts Lily Elsie, Edwardian actress and singer. I liked the hair volume, its curls and planes.
Next session of my painting based on my drawing ‘Nude – 17-06-15’. I let the painting dry for a day and started to add some transparent oxyde red, alizarine crimson and raw sienna.
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.
Last year I used dancer Julia Gómez Avilés as a model. Next to being a wonderful person for an artist she is ideal because of her flexibility.
