"De Beuk." Holland.

First my painting of today, ... done with
a cobalt blue sketch I think I gonna do that
a bit longer again, ... it got a cold glow in it.

"De Beuk." Velp, Holland.
(The Beech.)
Oil on board. 18 x 24 cm.

And of course one off the trip with Rob,
I noticed that he had placed his painting from "De Waal"
and I think it's nice to see how one scene can differ so much
between two painters, ....

"Turend in de mist." Leerdam, Holland.
(Looking into the fog.)
Oil on board. 24 x 30 cm.

Love the way you captured the "feeling" of the location. The use of a high key palette gives the painting a mysterious quality.
Nice work.

Hello Rene,
It must have been lots of fun out on painting excursions with another kindred spirit and enthusiastic painter. I bet you and Rob had a great time.
Your paintings echo the experience of the comraderie. Nice to see your work. Keep posting. Can I add you to my blogroll?

Thank you Katherine,
I did used Cobalt blue more, but some things ain't getting through at once I guess. I definitely gonna use it more, just keep watching I would say.

I like the "cold glow" from the cobalt blue-it works very well in that painting!
