Hard to choose. Holland.

Strange weather here in Holland,
At one moment the Sun is shining and you
have a feeling of spring, the next moment
it's snowing and its deep winter, ....

what to choose while painting, ...
I chose the sunny side.

"Wachtend op de volgende tocht." Doesburg, Holland.
(Waiting for the next trip.)
Oil on board. 24*30 cm.

Her some photo's of how the scene
can change in just a few minutes.

Now as a little bonus one of the paintings
of my trip last weekend.

"Net buiten Schaijk." Schaijk, Holland.
(Just outside Schaijk.)
Oil on board. 24*30 cm.

I hope that you had finished the one of the boats before rain arrived. What a change of weather!

Suzanne McDermott said...

I think that many of us are experiencing these changes. We may as well get used to it — I think they'll become more extreme. (Nice job on the boat - thanks for the pictures)

Leslie Sealey said...

Wow, what a drastic change in the weather! I like your boat painting, that's a beautiful blue color you're using.

René PleinAir said...

No I didn't Pablo,
But I have a good raincoat, and this kind of weather changes every minute so wait and it will be

Suzanne, It's common here in Holland these days, "Maartse buien" they call it.

Thank you Leslie, I draw the first sketch lately with colbalt blue and start of from there.

I've noticed very strong draftmanship in all your work René, This one of the boat is another fine example... nice piece of work.
