Grey, grey, grey and some grey with grey.

Although Richard Schmid once told he liked grey weather because
the light is just what you need as a plein air painter, cool with a colour
perspective just as it should be and lots of time because the light isn't
changing that much, ... he right about it all the way except that after
a few days (I'll reckon a week now) it's becoming very VERY dull,
no contrast now sparkle no nothing just grey light, ....
 
Ow well it's good practice.

Once in a while I like a foggy and grey cast!

Your right Jesh, but if I may choose I'll go for the Fog, rather then the grey light.

René, ik vind nummer twee (grijs bos) echt prachtig.
Het ritme van de stammen.
Overigens: als je veel buiten bent is het grijs veel minder erg dan voor mensen die binnen zitten. Toch?
Veel succes!

Perhaps you have to have these grey days to really appreciate the bulb fields! You paint grey just as well as colour though. :-)

Lovely, your greys. Because your greys are not grey at all:)

I love these. And I too are more in love with grey moody type of paintings. One landman of yours did amazing landscapes with a lot of mood, I loved his work all my life. Rien Poortvliet he painted wonderfully the dutch landscape in grey and rain and fog. :-)

cheers
