The Hofvijver, The Hague, #3 - Repainted

De Hofvijver, DH #3
oil on canvas - 30 x 120 cm
painted on location - 25 July & 8 Aug 2019


On the hottest day of the year, I was on location re-working this painting which I had originally made in the Fall of 2018, (see picture below).  I was quite concerned with the darkness of the shadowed area of the buildings, thus decided it needed to be lightened up, so that's exactly what has happened. If you notice closely I have also created greater depth in the painting, by making the distant buildings hazier and les foilage on the trees both center and on the right side. Also had fun painting in the seagulls and the two white swans in front of the floating island.
