Hortus Botanicus

Plein air watercolour with orange flowers, sketchbook by Philine van der Vegte
I spent a beautiful sunny day with another art school student in the Hortus Botanicus in Amsterdam, plein air drawing and watercolouring between the plants. These orange flowers were begging for attention!

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!
