Plein Air Paintings - The Hague

Oranje Nassau / Paleistuin - The Hague
Hofvijver - The Hague
Loosduinen - The Hague
Laan van Eik en Duin Graveyard - The Hague
With all the good weather we've been having lately in The Hague, I have picked up Plein Air painting again. With my trusty macbook 15' and a bamboo tablet I sit on location (usually aprox 3 hours, as that is how long my battery lasts), and try to paint what is in front of me. 

I can recommend it to everyone reading this, as it's great to observe color and light upclose, and try to capture it with a couple of brush strokes. As said, these paintings took a round 3 h ours on location, with usually alot of cleaning up afterwards at home, aprox 1 or 2 more hours.

I'm also still hard at work on a personal project called 'Giant', I'll be posting some stuff of that here soon aswell. For those who can't wait, you can already check out some of the sketches I've been posting on Instagram, direct link: http://www.gramfeed.com/rhemrev 

Thanx for looking!
