Schilderij 2

After my last art workshop, I found that I do enjoy painting so I signed up for a second workshop. Both workshops covered landscape painting but the second was en plein air. The workshop was held at a lovely farm in Eemnes. I really enjoyed working on location instead of just from a picture. You get to choose what you want to paint instead of what was photographed. You can see, hear, touch, and smell your subject. I decided to challenge myself with a difficult perspective.

Here is the area I painted.

Here is my finished painting. As you can see my perspective is a little off but I am fairly satisfied with the result.

The class and teacher, Ton de Kruijk, were really great. I had so much fun. Maybe soon I will try painting on my own.
