Sunday last October 17th my parents and I visised the once-in-a-lifetime exhibition of Albrecht Dürer art works and contemporaries. Crime scene: Suermondt-Ludwig Museum at Aachen, Germany.
This colored pencil drawing depicts the Herengracht in Leiden, Netherlands. The canal with its beautiful houses for the rich stands out in its grandeur compared to other minor ones.
Last Saturday I went to the Heineken Music Hall near the Johan Cruijff ArenA for my second vaccination shot. On the other side of the A2 there is Ouderkerk aan de Amstel, a village to the south of Amsterdam.
This graphite pencil drawing of Maassluis is an inbetween exercise. Lately I am fantasizing about combining ‘realism’ or whatever realism might mean to an artist and my personal roundism style.
After my last drawing of Rotterdam (Het Depot – 15-03-21) I thought it was time to do another drawing. I had something vague in mind: something impressionistic and rudimentary.
Rotterdam’s latest acquisition is the Depot Boijmans Van Beuningen. There was this online première in Januari 2021 during corona times but it drew less attention than deserved. Upon my word, I declare ‘Het Depot’ or in slang Rotterdam ‘De Pot’, a new wonder of the world.
In 2018 I was visiting the Stedelijk Museum Schiedam with my parents to see the exhibition of art works by Jan Henderikse, a representative of the Dutch Zero group.
In springtime Voorburg is a wonderful place to be. The Old Church is catching light and the big ol’ tree in front of it is shattering the light on top of the church roof.
I went to visit the Amsterdam Rijksmuseum with my parents to see the exhibition ‘Alle Rembrandts’: All Rembrandt sketches and etchings, well most of them anyway.
I was heading for Julia Filament’s exhibition on Katendrecht when I decided to take a detour through Kethel, a small encapsulated village in the north of Schiedam, near Rotterdam.
