This is more detail painting than I usually do, and it's also a different approach to painting trees. A bit like cotton balls, but I like them, and they are so prominent in this view.
I also switched from using aureolin to new gamboge to mix with sap green for the trees, which I like better. The trees have 4 layers of color to give a sense of light--a light wash of new gamboge mixed with sap green, 2 slightly heavier layer of the same colors on the left side of trees adding cobalt the second time, to finally mixing with some ultramarine blue, which I'm starting to use more and more on this trip.
I think I'm going to paint the boat on the left side bright red!
A good memory of a wonderful trip. The painting seems to feel as hot and sunny as it was in Den Haag! xoxoxo
