Dinner time

Dinner time, oil on canvas 60x80cm, painting of a Stabyhoun eating from a bowl by Philine van der Vegte
"Dinner time" This is a painting of our black and white Stabyhoun eating from her stainless steel bowl on the floor. Oil on canvas 60x80 cm, available on Etsy.
Wikipedia: The Stabyhoun or Stabij is one of the top five rarest dog breeds in the world. It is from Friesland and in particular from the Frisian forest area, a region in the southeast and east of Friesland. The breed has been mentioned in Dutch literature going back to the early 1800s, but has only extended its range from the 1960s outside of Friesland and not until the 2000s did the range officially extended beyond the Netherlands. The name Stabij translates roughly as "stand by me" with the last part simply Frisian, meaning dog, which is pronounced "hoon". The dog is considered a Dutch national treasure. There are only a few thousand Stabyhouns in existence today worldwide.

The fish smoker

Fish smoker in Monnickendam, plein air painting by Philine van der Vegte
"The fish smoker", oil on panel 20x30 cm, painted en plein air at the Monnickendammer Visdagen where men smoke mackarel and herring. It was windy and lots of rain as well, I kept on drying my painting with a bit of cloth in between showers. Then, big gusts of wind. Brushes fell into the water, one of the skippers fished them out for me from his boat. Hurrah! Still, I think the old smoker turned out nice with his oil drum for smoking the fish in, and his yellow parasol for the rain. And finally we got a bit of sun as well!

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...

"Strawberry still life" Original oil painting on panel 15x15cm.  Available on Etsy.
I love the colour and flavour of strawberries, and so do the children. I saved one to paint. It's still cold here, so the strawberries came from the shop. But the leaf and flower are from the garden, as a promise of luxuries to come!

This is daily painting number 80.

"Lilacs", plein air oil painting by Philine van der Vegte, panel 30x20cm
Daily painting #79, oil on wooden panel 30x20 cm, available on Etsy.
Lilacs on Kattenburg island, original oil painting, plein air in Amsterdam.
This is on the old naval wharf in Amsterdam. The island Kattenburg was created in 1655 and is across the National Maritime Museum and near Central station.
For me, the interest of this painting lies in the contrast between the straight volumes of the buildings and the meandering branches of the lilac tree. I painted it en plein air.
