De weg naar het centrum, Den Haag
oil on canvas - 40 x 50 cm
painted on location - Wed 24 June 2015
A painting made sometime ago, however only now posting on my blog. The work shows the popular terrace of St. Joris Cafe on the Koningsplein, the road then leads into Prins Hendrikstraat, after crossing the Waldeck Pyrmontkade. Thousands of bicyclists use this path to reach the city center daily. It is good for the environment and a good way to stay in shape. Painted late in the afternoon, the low Sun is casting necessary shadow to create contrasts in the composition. Below....Dimitris Voyiazoglou, Leon Holmes, and me working on location.
