"Rode morgen." Holland.

So here an other from "De Bollenstreek" made in the morning,

"Rode morgen." Noordwijkerhout, Holland.
(Red morning.) Oil on board. 22 x 30 cm.

It's soo hard to get the colors right, when they keep changing so
fast, from deep red to bright orange and form almost dark to almost
white, ... and that also nearby as well as in the distance.

The other great problem was the direction, towards the Sun everything
except red changes somewhat in a grey color, and with the Sun everything
is sooo bright and of course your palette is in full light. Umbrella's won't work
because it's nearby see so there is much to much wind.

Tomorrow more.

I know that is a difficult subject to paint, but you did it so well! I think you have just the right balance of detail and big shapes and colors. Beautiful!

Thank you Leslie,

the details are so necessary to give those fields some space, ...
