Starting the new one "Far away i miss the boat"


Started the new drawing from the bottom right edge like always, to prevent that  my hands would smudge the drawing. It resembles a typical Dutch landscape, the endless even surface, the endless sky, beautifully depicted by Meindert Hobbema (1638-1709) who he made the painting in 1689 and named it "The Avenue, Middelharnis"
At the left edge of the landscape i will place the distant figure of the ocean liner i made on my 1st drawing the "Behind the bush" the blurred volume of which didn't exist in the painting of the Dutch master, as well as the two wrestlers that i drew on the bottom right edge.
I see the original painting as a window to another era.
That window hasn't changed, the landscape is similar to itself nowadays, the same plain, with the same endless possibilities.

So is the drawing  my symbolic window, and i wrestle to win or to lose, but far away i miss the boat
