"Grey-factory" Westervoort, Holland.

Holland is famous about the grey colours, the grey weather and grey skies.
That's all because we have the bést grey-factories in the world, and at the moment
they are really making overtime!! One of them is quite near my hometown and
while painting it at sunrise you can really see how the marvelous orange red sky
turns into that awesomely grey tone, ... in the end it even falls out of the skies
some call this rain but it's nothing more then some sort off fall out or side effect
of all that grey.

Good to see you back!
I had a little free time yesterday so did a plein air on a much too smooth board so had some trouble getting the darks to stay on.

Still experimenting hey, ... pity.
You should concentrate on skill not on material. Anyway thanks for the warm welcome, it's good to be back.

Looking forward to your effort btw.

Come on, lighten up Rene! You know good material is way more important than skill ;)
The board I used was the only one I had with me that had the aspect ratio I was looking for. Good to see you again!

Hé, ja, die ken ik van m'n tochtjes naar de Ikea! Het ziet er altijd erg vies&vervuild uit daar, die grijze kleur klopt helemaal!
