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.
Beek-Ubbergen again and 50 shades of pink in honour of the fact that colour is highly underestimated in landscapes and outdoors in general.
Just outside Nijmegen towards the German border there are two places of beauty called the Ooij Polder and the start of the ‘Nijmeegse Heuvelrug’, part of the Lower Rhine Heights.
And now for something completely different: cows in Marlot. I wanted to change the subject for once and do a drawing similar to the horses in my drawing Laren 30-04-20.
The shortest way to my studio where I teach is via the Prins Bernhardlaan in Voorburg, Netherlands but once in a while I take a slight detour through the Notenboompark.
My last drawing was slightly cubistic but today I did this realistic one, that I would like to name ‘Golden Reality’.
The other day I bought new paper by Talens (Toned Colour Mix): a sturdy dark blue sheet perfect for colored pencil and pastel sticks. I also happened to find an old pastel stick (gold, Cretacolor 48254) that I did not use yet.
An early coloredpencil sketch of beer bottles, learning to create mass out of tonal values. In retrospective I like this one because it shows the transition from a child to an adolescent and more mature look at things.
