Schilderij

For a while now I have wanted to try my hand at painting. I have sketched with charcoal and oil pastels but never done any painting. So when I saw a chance to take a landscape painting workshop in Bussum (and get a chance to practice my Dutch), I signed up immediately.

We began sketching out details, in charcoal, on our canvases. Then we painted over the sketch and began adding color until our paintings were complete. I really enjoyed mixing the paints and layering the paint on the canvas. It was fun to learn a new skill in a new language.
