Bergen – 10-04-20

A Bit of Impressionism

This graphite pencil drawing ‘Bergen – 10-04-20 is a bit of impressionism. Nothing more different from the last one, called ‘Oosterbeek – 08-04-20’. Lately I made a couple of them in small A6 format. They are mostly made of the area in which I live. This sketch concernts a different area though. Some time ago I went to visit Museum Kranenburgh at Bergen, North Holland. There I also captured ‘Het Oude Hof’, a famous manor nearby. Legend has it all great impressionist, post-impressionist, luminist and expressionist dutch painters painted it one time. Names like Mommie Schwartz, Else Berg and Leo Gestel instantly come to mind. The capture turned into a great drawing I sold quickly so I thought I’d emulate that success with a subsequent drawing.

Diagonal Light Beams

These days many forests and parks are closed until further notice. So I picked a picture I took then of a lane opposite to the Museum. I was struck by the diagonal light beams offering a beautiful contrast to the verticality of the trees. The most natural way to capture it would be impressionistically like the drawings I made last week. Although Corona rules, I rule back! Furthermore, I’m planning to a couple of more in the next future but not too much. My Frida Kahlo painting is slowly progressing and I don’t want to loose too much pressure from the kettle. Of course I will return to drawing and painting landscapes again but later on. Still haven’t put a decent one in oil in an impressionist style though. A pointillist paintjng of The Ooijpolder though. Maybe it’s about time to do a cubist treescape again?
