The start of a new week .. on monday morning.. I never have any expectations so early in the day and week, but this attempt I enjoyed very much.. the dynamics of watercolor are visible in this work. Very hard to reproduce these dynamics and it does make every painting unique.
I got some questions about my easel that I use for Watecolor on location. Its a briefcase-easel that I made a few years ago… It has been very reliable and is used with a ‘commercial’ photo tripod. Actually I’m using my second tripod ! the easel itself has outlived the first tripod I bought after I finished building the easel. The pictures speak for themselves.. if you have more questions, you can always contact me at : email@example.com
Busy downtown Haarlem – de Dreef – in grey weather this week, its always challenging what to do with light and color when everything is in flat light.. When the sun is out the scene would be completely different from the perspective of type of shapes and their contrast to one another. I guess, for this painting I borrowed a little bit from a scene with a bit of sun shine and still stay true to the greyness of the weather… Watercolor 35×27 cm
Monet’s boats (he loved putting these boasts in his landscapes…) were taking people out on the river Zaan today. I had an opportunity to paint them… just like Monet 🙂… the guy with the beard was Monet himself and pushed me away from the easel…disagreeing with everything I did. https://www.monetinzaandam.nl/
Painting is my way of responding to the world around me, sharing these expressions in paint is a privilege. I work in oils, watercolor, and use a pencil for my sketches.. Enjoy!
