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.

TO BE EXPECTED Many customers want to see a panorama in real life before ordering. If you are unable to arrange a studio visit, I can send you a set of samples that will enable you to assess the quality and presence of the works.
A set of 4 samples costs 14.95 euros including postage. Each sample includes a cardboard surround so it can be framed as a mini painting.
You can order your samples in due time by sending a message to, mentioning ‘samples’ and the name of the townscape.


The townscape after 21 hours of drawing. Another 25 hours of drawing and 80 hours of colouring to go.
