Nieuwe Veenmolen – 18-11-17. Corné Akkers Corné Akkers Kunstwerken
Nieuwe Veenmolen – 18-11-17

A pastel drawing after the initial cubistic / roundish graphite pencil drawing of the Nieuwe Veenmolen, a mill nearby where I live. I did a lot of these in my roundism style but only in graphite. This one is a search for introducing pastel colours to the style, almost looking like cubism. I broke the greens in the central middle by adding some pinks, relating to the pinks in the sky. I learnt that from impressionists like Paul Signac, Camille Pissarro and Afred Sisley who used pinks in green leafs and grasses as well.
