"Barracks Fencing Klarendaal." Arnhem, Holland.

A few weeks ago this fence caught my eye, and I
thought it would be a lovely sight during a bright
sunny day as today, a bit cold but still good painting weather
It does has the feel of the gate Richard Schmid painted, his
one is waaaay better but each time I see such a fence I
can't help to think of his painting.

"Zuidelijke parallelweg." Westervoort, Holland.

It's so foggy overhere the whole day, that it's wasn't neseccery to
look far for a nice spot to paint, I love these days! steady light
lot's of the subject are simplified already and the mood is just
awesome, ... the only down part is the cold but as I said before
these kind of painting take that long so before you are getting really
cold your on a hot cup a chocolate.

"Cold start." Duiven, Holland.

A few weeks ago I saw > this < film on T.V.
and this morning I really had to think of it while seeing
these tall trees standing in the mist.

It was cold though, 'waterkoud' they say in Holland.
roughly translatted 'watercold' in a way it says that
everything is soo soaked with water it's sucks out every little
bit of heat that's there. Luckily these kind of painting don't take
that long, so after a few strokes and a few runs up and down the
field I was getting further to my Morris, because in the end it's
Thursday and therefore Morrisday!!

First Nocturnal

One thing what's nice about this season, it the amount of
dark skies, ...

"A12 bij nacht." Lathum, Holland.
(A12 at night.) Oil on panel. 24 x 30 cm.


"Liemers avenue." Westervoort, Holland.

The Indian summer is gone, what's left is a grayish light and
cold temps. The good part is that the light is very constant, that
there is a little autumn colour left and that the haziness is starting
to re-appear, I love that last one it makes everything soo much easier
to paint!!

"The corner." Lathum, Holland.

I noticed this scene last Thursday and with this Indian summer
I couldn't let it pass, ... it was beautiful as I painted it, but it
became spectacular when I finished, such a shame, although
sunset's are soo tricky, you almost have to do it in two steps
one for the block inn and a second setup for the final touches

"Little Wales." Lathum, Holland.

Although some artists are already longing for snow,
I am still enjoying the autumn colours and lovely weather.

Just while uploading this painting I saw Rob IJbema's work
Painting Wales Diary and that made me realize there isn't
any comparison with Wales, ... especially now with these colours!
