The Hofvijer # 6, The Hague

De Hofvijer, DH  # 6

Here I present to you the latest work made on location in this series. Autumn colours have definitely sit in, making this rendition gaily colourful. The tolerance flags were lined up on the other side of the pond, which just so happen to fit in nicely with the colour scheme. This painting is available with a handsome gold leaf frame from Italy, if you so choose.

The Hofvijer #4 and #5, The Hague


De Hofvijver, DH #4
oil on canvas - 55 x 45 cm
painted on location - 29 Sept. 2018

SOLD

Further developing this series, I decided to walk down the street towards the Mauritshuis. In order to get in the lamp pole and fence I painted from the other side of the street.





De Hofvijver, DH. # 5
oil on canvas - 60 x 90 cm
painted on location - 3/5/9 Oct. 2018

no longer exists.

This time a rather large format for plien-air painting, I decided to capture these lovely warm tones as the leaves of the trees are entering their autumn phase. Also the Sun being lower than it usually is, this also helps to intensifies the warm colors of the buildings. Is it any wonder that this is the most photographed corner of The Hague, I mean it's bloody breathtaking, wouldn't you agree?

The Hofvijver #3, The Hague

THIS WORK HAS BEEN REPAINTED, GO TO BLOG ENTRY OF 22 AUG 2019

Here I have decided to use a format that I commonly use when I paint a seascape or beach scene. I believe it works with this subject as well, as it captures the vast open space quite appropriately. Below a picture of me taken while I was working in the 3rd session. In this manner you get an idea of the actual size of this painting, which as you see is not the least a small work!
