The Vossendijk is the place where I was born, situated in Nijmegen, Gelderland, Netherlands. I was walking to my parents’ house who still live there, when the idea struck me to do a spring drawing again. Blossoms alreay came popping out while trees did not show their leafs yet. I decided to use a mild roundish styling while on the other hand keeping a rough edge. The drawing of my street thus became cubistic as well as impressionistic at the same time.
