Splendid afternoon, ... what a light during those winterdays.
The only downpart is the light to take a nice photo. Usually it's
just too dark so I have to take one with artificial light which I don't really like.

Polmanlaan. Doetinchem, The Netherlands

Yesterdays effort, somehow it does gave me a feel of those rural road in Ireland or England but this is a very small dirt-road so no comparison really. The fun part is that you are reasonably sheltered for the wind, although when it guts through the "lane" it blows every clean as well, which it did during this session. I painted this scene twice for that matter.
