"Achter de Prei." Oud Zevenaar.

a little bit of a trip, first by bike then by foot but
it was more then worth it. that's because I also discovered a
so called "kerkepad"(a small foot trail for people usually farmers
who are going to church at Sundays), .... which gave 4 to 6 new
scene to paint for the future!

Finally, Arnhem.

Finally I've done it, .. i wanted to paint this building
for such a long time, but viewing it from this point makes you
stand on the busiest point in Arnhem and that's not what I find
relaxed painting.

Ah well, started very early and found a little hidden spot so all
went quite well after all.

Here we go, ... part. II

So here they are, all my work of a few days away.

is a good way to spend time and do some practice.

Here we go, ...

So as promised, ... but not everything, ... yet.
It was hard working, i only blew one piece that floating in a harbour now
so if you want a free RenéPleinAir go search in a harbour in Vlaardingen.
I guess I just was too tired then I didn't had the energy anymore to mix just
a little further, ... that doesn't work.

Oh well, enough good work left, .. at least that's what I think.

After a great week on the other side of Holland.
Gouda, Delft, Maasland and Maassluis to be exact, ..

It´s soo authentic over there!
They don´t care if something is 300 or 400 years old, it just is!

I have painted my guts out, and it´s so many that I first have to upload them
together with some Indian ink sketches I made from several church insides.

Here one I made just beside our camping, ... a field beside it in the evening.
