Off to Noordwijk painting festival!

So I'm all packed and ready to go to Noordwijk painting festival this afternoon. I'll stay there all week, and you're most welcome to visit. See www.schilderfestival.eu for location details. Finished paintings of all 50 participating painters will be hung up in the festival tent immediately and are for sale. We're expecting great weather, so lots of sunny paintings this year!
I'll post the paintings as much as I can on this blog, and certainly on Facebook and Instagram. They will be available online after my return (if not sold off the easel).

Cardboard box selfie

Picture by Merlijne
Painting ourselves today in art class, with our head in a cardboard box to get interesting light-dark effects. Very uncomfortable, funny though. Portait turned out weird, as my self portraits always do. Can't get the hang of measuring in the mirror, there must be a better way than just winging it.

Turkey chick still life

"Turkey chick still life" Original oil painting on panel 20x15cm. Daily painting # 84, available on Etsy. Today, mama turkey ventured out into the vegetable garden. Her chicks got stuck in the strawberry netting, and great panic ensued. When I went to see what all the racket was about, it was already too late for this little chick. I cut the others loose, under flying attacks from the mother who assumed I wanted to kill her children! I painted this poor thing and then buried it. So soft...
