"Wrangelaan II." Doetinchem, Holland.

Noticed this nice great fellow yesterday morning and thought
it would be a nice experiment to paint it sitting , ... it changes
the composition so much that I am planning to get more used
to this kind of painting as well.

Hope you see the difference.

Typical Dutch weather, you hardly blocked your painting in

into the IJssel, it's not a big river and as Keith Tilley
says the edges really are a lot softer.
