It's been a while since I posted anything, thats because I've been painting in Aalten (a few miles from where I live) I rented a cabin to paint the autumn colours. Great fun to do, ... but with a limited acces to the Internet this blog becomes a little neglected.
Anyhow I'm back with the painting I did yesterday.
Terug naar de boerderij. Doetinchem, The Netherlands.
This is somewhat of a sad painting, when I told the owner of this dog that I was planning to put him in the painting he told me that the dog has cancer under his front leg, ... it's quite progressive so it wouldn't be long. Knowing that you could notice that he had some dificulty walking, he walked like an 14 year old dog and that while he was just 7, the poor fellow. I descided to put some more effort in this painting epsecially in the dog so it's not completely plein air, I'll guess 50/50.
That's awhile since I posted something, ... Ireland (Art In The Open) Limburg camping with my girlfriend ans some jobs at home does cause that you arn't able so much to post here. But holidays are over and it's back to work.
Reckon these will be the last Foxgloves for this season, ... they where awesome this year, soo much and soo full. Still don't know which I like the most, Foxgloves or Giant Hogweeds, ... although, ... I saw some Holyhocks in real and virtual so the contest isn't over yet.
