Situated in The Hague and blasting in the sun,
This piece stands on its own I think. Almost tainted glass-like and not really cubistic anymore, more roundism but different.
Impression of an Amsterdam sunset – 19-12-14 (sold)
This is the pastel drawing of the prestudy I made in graphite a month before. I like the sun that sets not underneath the horizon but in a window somewhere in a cityscape. It always blinds us and I liked capturing such a moment.
Walking through cities I was wondering what the essence of a sunset in city would be. It is easy to tell from a landscape. The sun always is visible, through treelines or at full display. When in Amsterdam or any other city it struck me all of a sudden the setting sun can be present for a very short time in a window screen, lighting up the complete street in orange hues. Backlighted buildings often show purples and blues in return as a complementary counterbalance through the stimulation of the cones in your eyes. That was where this pastel drawing was all about.
