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.
A little pond situated in the Ooij Polder, Gelderland, Netherlands, near Nijmegen, caused me a lot of trouble. I saw human figures in the treeline and the water reflections but I had to come up with some subtlety so I wouldn’t attrack all the attention to the figures as well to the trees as a given realistic fact.

A rather realistic drawing of a small pond at Voorburg, Netherlands in which I maintained a hatched stroke.
A view on Castle Duivenvoorde at Voorschoten, Netherlands. Not quite satisfied with this one. I think it’s too stiff.
