A few more paintings inspired by Summer Art Event


A few weeks ago, I painted plein air in the villages of Balloo and Loon as a participating artist at Summer Art Event, organized by Galerie Drentsche Aa. I took reference photos of the places I painted, but I also took a few photos of places I didn’t paint then and there, but that I thought might inspire future paintings.

The painting shown above would have been a real challenge to paint on location in any case, because the view was only attainable from behind a fence, where I could stand on my tippy-toes long enough to take a few photos, but not nearly long enough to make a painting or even a sketch.

The other watercolor (below) is one I could have conceivably done on location, but I ran out of time and decided to save it for the studio.
