De Koepel

When I go to teach at Studio Brugman, at Voorburg 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 dreamt myself a link to the ‘inner necessity’. This was felt by people like Alexej von Jawlensky and Kadinsky from the ‘Blaue Reiter’ movement. 1 + 1 equals two: that very sun and the exhibition I visited last Sunday at the Gemeentemuseum. There I saw all Alexej’s works and such culmunated into this piece, rather expressionistic of nature, in which I expressed my inner necessity.


My graphite pencil drawing ‘Het Oude Hof – 20-10-18’ was the last landscape piece I did. This time I felt this urgent (inner) need to use colored pencil to depict sunlight. The combination with color and my roundism style makes this one unique because I never did something similar in the past. The color scheme is relatively simple: red, greens, purples and yellows. That makes two complementary color combinations responsible for a maximal luministic result. Of course I should do more in the future, were it not for other ideas that keep coming all the time.
