"Daar, daar is de Rijn." Arnhem, Holland.

As promised the view I had yesterday, but
first I have to straighten thing up.
The building yesterday isn't called "De Tafelberg"
but "De Stenen Tafel." Sorry for that, ...

It is indeed a very strange building and was also used as
a water-tower, ... As you can see here the height of this
building is for Dutch standard enormous, so a good point
to build a water-tower.

The view in this painting is too my hometown (sort of)
my home town is exactly behind the large building, your
looking towards Germany here, ...

This is a striking painting. I like the composition and the vivid green of the foreground constrasting to subdued colors of the background, and this subtle light bathing everything... So well rendered !
