"Where is spring gone?" Giesbeek, Holland

It seems that Sarah Wimperis is much more a weather-forecast for me
then our local weather forecast service, just look at her blog and you know
what weather we will get the next day or so,  .... Thanks Sarah!!

Although it looks quiet easy to paint it's very delicate to give it just the
right cool warm balance, ...



"Waar is de lente gebleven?" Giesbeek, Holland.
(Where is spring gone?) Oil on panel.
24 x 30 cm.

Even trickier is it when the mist is rising, you have to be soo aware
what you where going for in the beginning, ...

Btw. Sarah these are the floodplains who where full of water
just a couple of weeks ago.

"Overblijfselen." Velp, Holland.
(Left overs.) Oil on panel.

Erg mooi geschilderd Rene. Ik zit elke keer te genieten van wat je gemaakt hebt en met kijken leer ik zelf ook weer bij. ;-)

These are amazing Rene, looks like the frustration period (from the graph) has ended :)
The first one reminds me of a Poortvliet, very well done.
