Den Haag – Nassaulaan – 01-05-24

A Bit of Impressionism

This graphite pencil drawing ‘Den Haag – Nassaulaan – 01-05-24’ is a bit of impressionism. For no particular reason I always associate this season with impressionist paintings and drawings of landscapes. Get yourself outdoors you’d say and sketch. Usually, during this time of year I already would have made some.  However, it’s been raining quite heavily since Spring arrived but it’s getting better all the time. The weather is starting to improve here in The Netherlands. Soon I’ll be back out there drawing in a camping chair somewhere.


As to the drawing at hand I have to disappoint you. It’s not made at the very spot. There was this small exhibition ‘Children of The Hague School’ in Panorama Mesdag I intended to visit. That was a couple of weeks back and it was such a day you couldn’t decide to wear a coat or not. At the Mauritskade I decided to go for a little detour and turn right on the Nassaulaan. There was this see through with a little canal between two big mansions. I took some picture and got to the exhibition. I always like these combinations of human-made structures and nature. It gives context and contrast.

Not a Certain Style

Lately I haven’t got the cubist feel as explained in my last one, called ‘Reclining Nude after Breitner – 27-04-24’. It made me realize I have a couple of distint styles that differ from eachother. There’s Roundism, my own view on surrealism and this typical hatched strokes impressionistic style. Maybe even more. Not long ago an art critic advised me to stick with one certain style. Personally, I think that’s quite an American or commercial way of looking at things. She might be even right on this one but I feel different. What I certainly didn’t plan is to have an art carreer like many artists out there. Perhaps it’s also because I don’t want to be labelled and categorized. What I always wanted is to have a certain meta-recognition throughout all of my works. Do you think I succeed in doing so?
