This graphite pencil drawing ‘Beek – 18-05-23’ follows my previous one of Den Haag. I wanted to do this one for a long time.
This graphite pencil drawing ‘Den Haag – Lange Voorhout – 15-05-23’ depicts a beautiful spot in the heart of the city.
This graphite pencil drawing ‘Berg en Dal – 02-05-23’ is a welcome change from 9 consecutive impressionist landscapes I made.
This graphite pencil drawing ‘Notenboompark – 06-04-23’ follows my sketch of lambs in Clingendael of last week. Suddenly I wanted to do one of Voorburg again.
This graphite pencil drawing ‘Clingendael – 31-03-23’ follows up my previous one of Delft. For no particular reason I wanted to draw a bit of nature again.
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.
This graphite pencil drawing of Maassluis is an inbetween exercise. Lately I am fantasizing about combining ‘realism’ or whatever realism might mean to an artist and my personal roundism style.
Some time ago I visited De Smorenhoek, a small but long meadow surrounded by wood embarkements. From Beek-Ubbergen it runs upwards to Berg en Dal.
And it so happens my niece Lilian turned out to be a great photographer. Lo and behold, artistry runs deep in the veins of our family and I asked her to use a beautiful photo she took of a treeline in Puiflijk, near to where she lives.
