Historic village view Today I showed the finished painting to the commissioners and I was very happy to hear they liked it. So this painting has now moved to its new home. I liked working on it. A rather large canvas has been a challenge as well as the new alla prima techniques with the oil colours. The unusual composition with a broad perspective in combination with the winter sunlight and long shadows made it work. I must admit I was also much inspired by the beautiful old classic frame provided by the commissioner, which is now a part of the painting and quite a nice match. So this became "Burenlaan in Winterzon", oil, canvas, 40 x 50 cm. View the finished painting in my gallery .
