When I go to teach at Studio Brugman, atVoorburg I often come across The Dome (De Koepel), situated in the middle of estate ‘Vreugd en Rust’.
There are many serious moments in my life as a teacher.
When I went out for a drink with an old friend at Voorburg I was a little early and standing in front of the bar looking at the Old Church (Oude Kerk or St. Martin’s Church) at Ve oorburg and was struck by the lighting from below almost setting the church ‘on fire.
These times call for a poet that says it all.
In my ever quest for finding styles and new ways of rendering I found myself challenged by this picture of Ingrid Bergman, famous Swedish-American moviestar and celebrity of the 1940s, 1950s, 1960s and part of the 1970s.
In retrospective this is an ode to my deceased cat who died in November 2016. This is her, reclining in the sun, a couple of months earlier, when she was still going strong.
I started this one at Studio Brugman, Voorburg, Netherlands at King’s Day (Koningsdag) last year after the previous two drawings ‘Tree at Voorburg’.
A deviation from the first Tree at Voorburg. This one has roundish shapes rather than straight.
The first tree out of a series of 2 tree drawings.
Just practising my view and hands.
