"Vice." Doesburg, Holland.

Vice, ... I reckon the translation isn't so well if I imagine
that Vice President would be rather odd.

Vice, ... Ondeugd in Dutch means a little like not brave
not polite and also not well working, any idea what a nice
word for it would be in English?

Anyway, I really enjoyed painting this one mostly because
somehow it made me paint the first washes as loose as possible.
and it painted itself for the most part.

Oow and btw. I am so proud of those little fish, ... such little pressents
makes that you're have the feeling your on the right track.
"Ondeugd." Doesburg, Holland.
(Vice.) Oil on panel. 24 x 30 cm.

I always admire how you can make the water look so transparent. Those fish are a good example.

Thanks Lampros, Annelotte and John.

Guess that Naughty is the one I was looking for especially for a boat, ...

Thank you to Keith, the most part of the water is fluidly done with rubbing off with a rag and big brush marks. Don't pay too much attention on reality in the first stage, look at whats happening.
