Painting of the Vecht near Rheeze
Painting of the Vecht near Rheeze

I’ve been busy with this big painting for for some time now.
It size is 45×30 inch or 115x75cm, quite a large size for me.

About the location:
Rheeze is a  hamlet near Hardenberg. The exact location is the picnick place near the bicycle ferry.
Unfortunately the trees and bushes on the far bank have been removed.
This was done to give the river more space(flood-protection)

Worked yesterday on the sky and the water.
Would have done more today, but the threat of rain forced me to stop.
I normally paint in the garden with oil paints so rain and wind is a factor for me while painting.

But this time the precipitation of the thundercloude however missed my location:(..

Could have worked some more on it:’(

Thought it was finished but after a few days I wasn’t so sure anymore.
So when the paint on it was dry I added some details on the trees on the farside of the river.
I think the painting is now really finished:)
