very cool paintings Rob. I like the atmospheric effect in both, and judging by how soupy the weather looks in the photos, you've certainly nailed this feel. Good drawing with the path and the receding fenceposts in the first one.

Hehehehe, Rob the bright site of it is, that you ONLY need "René Grey"

Cheap, easy to paint with and last but definitely not least,

It never goes wrong!
Every painting with "René Grey" is a success!! Hehehe

Nice to see them again, I like all three of them. I give a nice feeling of how Holland is during those days

rene,rene grey is the most complicated color you can get,it has got a special secret formula and uses rare ingredients,only available in space...so i don't know what yoy are talking about??

Easy Rob, ...

It's a residue from pea soup I think. Or was it a by product??
