The New Harbor with Cathedral, Dordrecht

Gezicht op de Nieuwe Haven, Dordrecht
oil on canvas
40 x 120 cm
painted on location - Sun 5 July and Sat 1 August 2009


For those of you who are not familiar with this city, here you have yet another reason to get your ass on over here, and have a look around. This is supposedly Holland's oldest city, and believe me it is will worth a visit. As Turner said in his time, "Light governs everything". Painting with the light shining in my direction, was not the easiest thing, but I could not pass up this stunning view of the church, the sky and harbor.
