"Ganzen II " Anrhem, Holland.

Not perfect yet, but I am getting the hang of it.
At least I can see where it's not correct, ....

You learn a lot by painting live animals plein air!
One thing for example lure the beast with correct food,
geese love bread but when the eaten it there gone again,
better to give them apples they have a lot more problems with
it so they stay a lot longer on one place. A second thing is
to clean up everything BEFORE feeding the animals, nothing
is more frustrating than cleaning your palette and brushes while
those geese are eating the bread. I think it's even smarter to pre-
mix some of the colors before lureing them.

Btw. Annelotte from the blog Ontspindocter had an idea on a forum called:
"Playing now" I thought it would be a nice idea here as well, ...
This is what I am fond listening to lately while I paint. (mp3 player)
