The Leiden periodHands The Charcoal Series

Randolf's charcoal drawings are extremely badly documented. The complete series consisted of ten drawings made in a very short period for the open studio’s project in 1995. Four drawings were selected for the fifth anniversary exposition of the Leiden Art Center in 1998, only seven photos remain and all the works have been sold. A Japanese, a Chinese and three different Dutch persons got their hands on them. In the near future attempts will be made to contact these buyers and take better pictures of the drawings.

In general the composition of the drawings follow the same rules as in the artists paintings from that period, although there seems to be more emphasis on the positions of the hands leading to some interesting details. The charcoals used by Randolf came from a big wood fire in the old well in the Art Center's garden.
