Het Dordste Schefferplein #2

Scheffers Square, Dordrecht,#2
oil on canvas
50 x 40 cm
painted on location, Saturday 16 August 2008


Here I am back in Dordrecht, were I am participating with a couple of other plein - air painters in this local art manifestation. Again I chose to paint the staute which has been erected in honor of one of this cities most famous citizens, the 17th century artist, Ary Scheffer. Interesting in this scene is the size difference between the statue of the painter, as compared to the small female ceramic artist. This was done with intention, as I value the painter much more than the ceramic artisan.
