My graphite pencil drawings Het Sterrenbos – 12-09-22 and Clingendael – 31-08-22 belong together.
Today, the last day of August, I went to Clingendael with my dear friend Michelle. We were out there to take some landscape pictures and to do some drawing.
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 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.
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
Last year this time around Spring I started a series of small graphite pencil landscapes, one per day.
A unique situation: everybody all around the world at home and as to me: I got nothing to do except for painting and sketching but hey that is what we artists do all the time.

This one is special. Long since they passed away only know to reappear in pastel. This one represents my uncle Ben taking care of his son Matthijs some 30 years ago.
