"Towards the new train station." Westervoort, Holland.

Yesterdays effort, a little view of the train track towards our
new build train station. It climbing a little here because in the end
it has to cross a river, the IJssel.

Anyway with these kinds of summers everything is soo green, but also so gray.

"Naar het nieuwe station." Westervoort, Holland.

Brilliant Landscape Rene. It`s got everything that I like in a Landscape painting, Impressionistic but you certainly can see what it is, wonderful. All the best rene.

Thank you all,

I use a Kevin McPherson's palette Randy extended with Cad red and Viridian.

Mcpherson's palette contains:

Ultrm. Blue dark, Alizarin Crimson medium, Cad yellow light.

I appreciate the info Rene. That is my exact palette too. I haven't been happy with my darks, but the same colors are working for you. I'm not using Gamblin Viridian. It's a cheaper brand and not cutting it. It's gone. Back to the easel.

Thanks again!
