De Lakenhal – 16-08-19​

Last weekend I visited De Lakenhal at Leiden, Netherlands to see the exhibition ‘Rembrandt and the Golden Age’. Quite nice, also to see the refurbished museum. When I looked out the windows at the front of the building I was captured by the Oude Vest on which the light was filtered by the museum glass. It looked a little bit sinister and there were gloomy clouds in the sky which lead me to draw this one.

Voorschoten – 11-03-19

Last year I was walking through sunny Voorschoten, a town in the north to where I live. I saw an attractive cityscape appearing in one of the streets, took a picture and decided to do this one some days ago, not knowing yet how to execute it in graphite pencil. The trees and the top part of the drawing directed me towards my personal style roundism but the low part of the drawing became another story.
