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.
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’. When I saw the autumn sun burst through the trees I saw the link to the ‘inner necessity’ felt by people like Alexej von Jawlensky and Kadinsky from the ‘Blaue Reiter’ movement. 1 + 1 equals two and that very sun and the exhibition I visited last Sunday at the Gemeentemuseum where I saw all his works, culmunated into this piece, rather expressionistic of nature, in which I expressed my inner necessity.
