Wittebrinkse molen. Zelhem, The Netherlands.

An other great paint-out with the group, ...

Did you know you can join if you like? Just join the group and you'll know where we paint each week somewhere in the county Gelderland, you don't even have to live in Gelderland or The Netherlands for that matter. It's all about getting together and paint, no marketing no "I know you you know me" stuff  just having fun to paint together on one of the beautiful spots Gelderland has to offer.

We are working on a national group as well but that will be a monthly happening.

Look for the Facebook page Pictura Gelria and join!!
(It's free, ... )

Berkelsingel. Zutphen, The Netherlands.

An other great days painting with the Pictura Gelria group yesterday. It's still a growing group especially with members who also actually come to paint! Roughly we count between 5 to 10 persons each week! I'm soo pleased with that cause I did try several time to start up something like this in The Netherlands but it seems that the artists on the other side of the country (some except) are more interrested in making money then painting.

Anyway this it the same house I painted last week but from a different angle, ...
