The Hofvijver, # 12 and # 5 (re-painted)

De Hofvijver Series #12
oil on canvas - 20 x 30 cm
painted on location - Tues 27 Aug 2019


I have returned to a subject which was started last year in the Fall. In my opinion one of The Hague's most picturesque corners. Here I made a quick oil sketch, characterized by loose brush strokes, nothing is really perfect, however it pulls together well, making it easy to visually digest.

De Hofvijver Series #5 (op nieuw geschildert)
oil on canvas - 60 x 90 cm
painted on location - Thurs 29 Aug 2019


This work was originally painted in the Fall of 2018. The shadows were much deeper, giving it greater contrast. I decided to lighten up the whole scenery thus a re-visit with the sunnier light situation.  And a major change was the removal of a lamp pole, on the right side of the painting, have a look for yourself here below.
