After teaching today I went to Park Sonnenburgh in Voorburg, Netherlands around the corner. The light was perfect and late in the afternoon there was this incredible light shattered across the landscape by the bushes and the trees. I always like this clairobscur play. As an artist I am dependant on the light and the absence of it. I guess blocking in the light with my graphite pencil is my religion. I kept this one under one hour giving it a kind of rough impressionistic edge.
