The Peace Pace at The Hague – 04-02-19. Corné Akkers Corné Akkers Kunstwerken
The Peace Pace at The Hague – 04-02-19

The reference picture I used I took last year at the brink of spring. Since this (today – 4nd February 2019) was a particularly windy and cold day I used this motif in order to evoke spring I guess. I kept the International Court of Justice building (‘the Peace Palace’) quite vague and I also sketched with a rough edge more that I am used to in previous drawings and decided such was more suited to work it towards a more impressionistic look than cubistic / roundish, even though some parts in the foreground show my initial roundism intentions.
