This is a local road near Merkelbeek, a little further down the road than shown in the post of June 23rd.

I am a bit dissatisfied with my drawing lately, I want to improve my use of "values" and composition. So I bought a book by Carl Purcell (your artist's brain, het artistieke brien), one of those book about drawing with the right side of your brain. I always thought that to be new age humbug, but I was wrong.
I am doing some of the exercises in the book (in my own way), and they really help understanding what I am doing. This painting should be considered to be one of those, an exercise in values.

Not much sketching lately, most of my Saturdays are spent building a wooden pergola in my backgarden. Fortunately I don´t have to do it on my own, my son Mart is a big help. He is young and lean enough to climb on the roof.
With a little luck it´s finished next weekend, only the shingles roofing left to do.
Prieeltje in wording in mijn achtertuin. Het kost me al een paar zaterdagen, maar ik heb goede hulp van mijn zoon Mart. Alleen de dakbedekking nog.
