Berlage’s kiosk (at The Hague) – 22-06-17 (sold)
During my lessons as a teacher I stell my students there is no end to perfection and one never can tell when a painting or drawing is finished.
An impressionistic view on Leiden, where I studied. I am often fascinated my reflections in water and there are so many canals to be found over there. The movement of the water is what I put as a central theme in this drawing.
I was attracted to the cubist quality of the planes that still offer a realistic / impressionistic view on a back alley in a small town called ‘Schoonhoven’, Netherlands.
A pastel that was lingering about in my studio for years until I completed it. I went for a strong purple / yellow contrast. It’s now with a private collector in China.
This was commissioned work and the purpose was to capture sensuality and through cubist forms get the round female shapes.
Portrait of my dear colleague and friend Julia Filament who has a very round face, so I felt myself forced to break her up in straight lines and planes.
An impressionistic view on the buttocks of my favourite model.
