Canal Scene, Scheffersplein, Dordrecht
Winters dag te Dordrecht
oil on canvas
50 x 40 cm
painted on location, Thurs 11 March 2010
I found myself in Dordrecht yesterday, visiting with 3 fellow female artists, one of which was her birthday,(Mieke van Zundert). Revisiting a location I previously painted, I took it upon myself to paint over a work I already made last summer(see small picture bellow), during the art manifestation, 'Place D'Ary'. This time it was freezing cold, with a mild yet brisky wind. I did my upmost to bring this situation across on the canvas. Even though this work is very loose, I am rather content with the result, as afterall this is a painting, not a drawing or illustration. Featured on the lit up square is a statue of Ary Scheffer, a famous 17century painter born here in Dordrecht.
