Marlot – 04-04-21 (sold). Corné Akkers Corné Akkers Kunstwerken
Marlot is close to where I live. On my morning walks I can choose between the Haagse Bos or Estate ‘Oosterbeek’ farther away. Up north there Park Marlot I have sketched a couple of times. There is also the residential area with villas and big semidetached mansions. On my way back I saw this incredible lane with a sun bursting through the dense tree branches. Its light was scattered all around and instantly inspired be artistically, so I took a photo. You might think an artist like me always has a sketchbook at close range. You also might have the presumption he is quick enough to create a work of art on the spot. Well, sometimes I do but nowadays everybody has a smartphone. I felt grateful to be able to acknowledge and capture this moment of beauty. These moments of wandering beauty pass by too quickly anyway.

Cast Shadows
In continuation of the previous drawing I set out to do this one in the same mild roundish style. I slighty deformated the tree trunks whereas I kept the overall atmosphere rather impressionistic. The fact cast shadows differ from sharp to blurry farther away only attributes to the atmospheric depth. The branches up in the tree I slightly rendered symbolically. That is because I wanted to avoid too realistic a depiction.

In Leaf or Not?
Everybody must be longing for Spring, warmth and trees in leaf. There is sound reason to love them without leaves though. To the right Huis Marlot remains visible and serves as a recognizable landmark. Leaves often can lead to clottered and dense structures taking away each and every vista. This having said, I am quite prepared for Summer to arrive. Living outdoors will scare away the Corona virus I hope.
