Farm on the Damse Vaart

Recently I resuscitated a painting project from 2014. I was particularly pleased that I was able to convey in the studio something that I feel about landscape without needing to schlep everything out to the field to work en-plen-air. Don’t get me wrong. I love working en-plen-air but Belgium’s climate, my physical strength and the mixed technique all conspire against me, encouraging instead studio work. So this is/was the result. My apologies to those of you who are receiving this twice. I added the clouds and details in the foreground field. A big improvement.

Oil on board. 30 cm x 60 cm or 11.8 x 23.6 in.

The technical write up is here.

      Thanks, Laura!
      The strange thing is is that the real painting is so much better (attractive) than any photograph I can make of it. It could be the luminosity just doesn’t translate? Dunno.
