The Ooij polder – 27-06-16 (sold)

surrealistic landscape graphite pencil drawing

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.
