A couple of weeks back I was going to the Jongkind exhibition at the Dordrechtse Museum at Dordrecht, Zuid-Holland, Netherlands and I decided to go on a short detour across the city which I visit almost two decades ago for the last time. It was a gloomy day and when I came across the harbour I catched a glimpse of a beautiful scenery showing great horizontals and verticals with the Onze-Lieve-Vrouwekerk at the back. I liked showing some curves of the ship hulls reflected by the shapes of the clouds as a counterweight for so much straightness.
