My neighbour had his birthday, 65 years now, and this was the present from his family. He is very proud of the house. And the painting has a nice location now.
Done with water soluble oil on a panel, 40x50cm.

I used a portrait of Andew Wyeth, a painter I admire immensely. Not that that was the reason to paint him, but I loved the strong contrasts in the face.

Out sketching again. A little castle in my town, maybe 6 kilometers away, Terborg.
It's used as a wedding place, actually my daughter was married here. THere was a wedding going on, at a certain point the bride was posing for pictures, on the small drawbridge to the entrance, I managedto insert her in the drawing.

Anoter try at a serious painting: based on the "Sam Drukker" style of working.
It's based on a picture by Ed van der Elsken, a couple somehere in Paris I think.
I decided to go for a dramatic colour: kobalt blue. This is after one evening of painting.
See where it gets me.

The Knight had to cover his ears again, and walked to the animal to check it out properly. He had to shout: “Hello Hydra! Listen, for a nice little reward I could solve your problem!”
The seven heads looked to each other and said simultaneously: “Okay. This pot holds a nice and fitting present. It will make you think of this sweet creature. Will that do?”. “We have a deal!” the Knight said.
He flew to the roof on his horse and lowered a rope through the chimney. With a heavy pull the animal came loose. It was a regular Octopus! She was probably lost in the storm!
The Knight pointed to Octopus. ”Look at that! An Octopus. She is clearly a long way from home and the sea. But I will take her home”.
The Hydra blushed out of shame. Stuttering the heads told each other: “I am so sorry, Forgive me, I didn’t mean all I said. I do like you. Can we be friends again? Just like old times?”
And so everything was okay again. They spit a little fire to celebrate.The Knight waved goodbye and quickly carried the Octopus to the sea.
