My model and I were looking for intesting poses and on the bedside there it was: a beautiful one with some interesting lighting. Sometimes extreme light like in this particular case can offer a new insight in compositionary possibilities.
Not often is it that I depict animals with children but this one is a beautiful exception
These Corona days I wander about the region like I am used to. Nothing changed in this respect and I am more than happy that we in The Netherlands have at least some freedom of movement and that the end of our ‘intelligent lock down’ is in sight
Estate ‘Voorlinden’ at Wassenaar, Zuid-Holland, Netherlands has become my favourite park because it holds everything dear to me: a classic mansion from the 1920s, a museum of modern art with an interesting collection and last but not least a park surrounding the main buildings of equisite quality.
Last year this time around Spring I started a series of small graphite pencil landscapes, one per day.
The second one of Oosterbeek this week and I chose a specific spot in the park where there is a bend in brook running through it.
My regular model comes to visit me every month and this time I had the plan to put only two small LED light sources around her.
This is the fifth drawing of Gouda, a beautiful city in Zuid-Holland, Netherlands, not far from where I live. It is a depiction of the Sint-Janskerk from the Market (de Markt).
Once I was at the roof top of a friend of mine who held an exhibition in her home at Leischendam, looking over ‘De Sluisjes’ (the locks) in the centre.
Last week I was walking in the direction of Museum Gouda to visit the exhibition ‘From Gauguin to Toorop’ when I saw this canal adjacent to the museum, opposite to the old church of Gouda.
