Exhausted and still not finished with all the paintings (16 in 4 day!)

the same when painted in brownish colors.

A great collection. "Morgenkleur" has wonderful depth, it seems to go on forever.

I really enjoyed looking at these. A trip to the Tulip Fields has long been on the agenda ... these make me want to do it NOW!!!

Hello from deep in the heart of the US!

You have very good drawing skills that support your paintings quite well! Love the 'behind the church' scene, reflected light in the shadow always intrigues me!

Oh my Rene, that was a serious eyful! Absolutely wonderful to see those tulip fields come alive in your work.

Erik van Elven said...

Wonderful work Rene,
So you switched back to your old palette?
Hard to pick a favorite, they are all so nice. Amazing how little info you need to be able to read those dots as sheep.

Michael Pieczonka said...

wow Rene, looks like you have been working really hard.. you have a ton of new work. All pretty solid, but really love "Velden langs de Lutjewallerweg" and "Amstelmeer".

Joanna said...
