Fun on the Snow # 3
Plezier in de sneeuw # 3
oil on canvas - 50 x 60 cm
painted on location - Wednesday 10 Feb. 2021
Who say's Nederland is flat? Why just have a look at this series, okay they are not mountains, but we got our share of hills, you must admit. And where there is a snow covered hill you can be assured you will have a crowd of kids enjoying themselves. Just want to point out that these works are made on location, swiftly and as skillfully as I can manage. Thus the style or application of paint shows this in an innocent and truthful manner. I choose purposefully to not give too much attention to the tree line, on the top of the hill, rather focusing on the action on the slope. Kids falling and sliding down, but that's fun, the laughter was loud and clear! Of course that kind of action is not for everyone, so hey why not build a snowman!
