Winters magic, Nootdorp (nr The Hague)
Winters landscap, Dobbeplas, Nootdorp
oil on canvas
30 x 40 cm
painted on location - Thurs 07 Jan 2010
Yes in the bitter sweet cold, il pittore sits up his easel, and captures for your viewing pleasure, this common winter landscape here in The Lowlands. You see, beauty can be found almost anywhere, it just takes good observation, and being at the location at the right moment. With this glorious play of the welcomed sunlight on this snow covered frozen pond, my palette, sings the soft melodies of winters delight. Stillness and quiet abounds, Nature takes her well deserved rest, yet She still puts on a good show in her sleep. Wouldn't you agree?
This feathered creature was demanding attention, so I carefully loaded my brush with some paynes grey, painting her and her shadow.
