Doenrade

This is a paintng, not an urban sketch. For some time I am fascinated by the artist Charly Hunter, and I tried his working method on a canvas 40x50cm. He paints in water soluble oilpaint, and washes it out with water, tissues and earsticks. The scene is based on a picture of a farmhouse in Doenrade, made during one of my running rounds.
I treated it as a study in values.

Apostelhoeve

Another one of the hills south of Maastricht. The vineyards of Apolstelhoeve, at the Jeker. Already a few weeks old, it was better weather then.
