Dutch Dolmen: D53 Havelte-W, Hide and Seek
“D53 Havelte-W, Hide and Seek” gives a look at a Dutch dolmen. In addition, we see a schematic representation of children playing hide and seek. The child whose turn it is to search the other children seems distracted. It looks at a snail.
The Netherlands have just over fifty dolmens. They are all – except one – in the province of Drenthe. D53 Havelte-W is the largest but one. It lies close to D54 Havelte-O in a hilly landscape that took its shape in the ice age. The two prehistoric buildings are a bit out of direction compared to other dolmens. The ride to it is nevertheless very worthwhile. The nature around the Havelterberg is beautiful, as are the burial mounds that you can find there.
For this artwork I made a random base layer with watercolor. I then drew the contours of the dolmen with fineliner. Finally, I fantasized about a scene that I depicted schematically. The entire process was intuitive. Water color and fineliner pens on paper, 23 x 31 centimeters.
