townscape of the market square in Nijmegen

The market square is a unique location where old meets new. Sitting on my folding chair with my back to the department store I draw a panorama. Everything will be in it: people, bicycles, the Stikke Hezelstraat shopping thoroughfare, the Church of St. Steven, trees, the statue of Mariken, a duck, the Waagh, jet planes and the historic Burchtstraat.

This page contains information about the creative process and background details about this special location.
