"Boothuisjes." Doetinchem, Holland.

Second time I painted these boathouses and again it makes me
think of a demo in one of Davids books. Had a conversation with
a fellow artist Michael Richardson about it in Ireland. Michael, I
now know why you should paint these subjects, .... They are
horrible to paint, soo much green and soo little to hold on too, ... Thats why!
 
Great practice and fun tho.
