Hi Rene. I've been away from the computer for a couple of weeks and just catching up. Thanks for the comment and I hope you can join our mutual friend, Rob Ijbema at Art in the Open in August 2010. You are very welcome to sign up on the Group page if you might make it to Ireland next year. Your legendary blog was one of the first I came across a couple of years ago when first getting into plein air painting.
Hi Rene. Thank you ! I appreciate this coming from you. I keep trying to distill the landscape down to its essence. That's where that simplicity comes from. I keep subtracting and simplifying as I sketch the scene.
