Geen idee hoe dat is in het Engels.

Anyway, i like the frontal composition not one to choose likely, but definitely a good choice

Hi Rob, I have been at your blogs frequently but haven´t commented anything. Your painting cars blog is fabulous and you are doing a great job and your landscapes are fine as well. This impressionistic feeling is great.

It is spring overload here in California as well and I am sneezing like crazy!
Although, I can enjoy gazing at your vibrant and delightful painting of buds and daffs.... allergy free ;-)

oh no poor Jennifer,that must be the worst,being a plein air painter with hayfever,my boys suffer from it too,it is no fun at all.
i thought it was always summer in California?

Hi Rob,
This looks fabulous. I know it is only on an 8" x 6" ; but it would also look spectacular real big; but staying loose the way you do would be the challenge. Great work.

Sally...i find it really hard painting landscapes in the studio,my mind wanders,i need to be in front and in the moment of the subject....thanks!

Jamie said...
