"Boven water." Westervoort, Holland.

I know this spot well, and thought it would be dry
as well, but sooo dry that I didn't know.

And what do you know, there was lying an old rotten
barge, ... what a gem!!

Pity that I forgot my turp, on the other hand, a good
lesson to paint what thicker.

It must be wonderful finding all these new subjects, and you're making such good use of them.

Wow, I saw the thumbnail of this in my "blogs I follow" list and had to come see up close! Love the beautiful grays. Just a delight to see. Well done!
