"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.
