"Viva la France" Hummelo, Holland

Yes I know it sounds a bit weird but really it was a
little piece of France here in Hummelo this weekend.
Had a great time although it was very crowded, which
is a pity when you want to paint those lovely stands but
I did manege to find two spots which where doable.

"Ooijmanlaan." Doetinchem, Holland

Best morning ever, ... painterly spoken that is.
After that much rain the air is soaked with moist which results
in awesome areal colouring, what a treat!

Pochade for Louise Treacy

Been busy with building a little pochade for Louise Treacy,
a very lovely lady I met in Ireland. It's nice to experiment
a bit for other artists with new ideas for a pochade box.

This one is a merge of the OpenboxM and the Mabef 106
I myself use some different model it's something between
the English pochade and the OpenbowM as well. This I like
cause you can hold you panel horizontal and vertical which
my own box can't.

Here some photo's during the build and finished. Feel free to
ask if you would like to know more about some details.

"Hope you like it Louise ;-) "
