Delft, Oost Einde, with view of Nieuwe Kerk tower
oil on canvas, 24 x 30 cm ( 9.5 x 12 in.)
This painting has been reworked. See tuesday 16 april
Here you have today's painting, a favorite street scene of mine in Delft. Take note that I positioned myself in the shade.
This was absolutely necessary with this unexpected heat wave we are presently experiencing here in Holland. For painting,
it is also better to not be in direct sunlight as it affects ones ability to make color choices.
I'm going to have to take a better picture of this as this one seems to have a hazy quality, which is not on the original artwork.
