Groene weiden... Green pastures...


Vorig jaar waren mijn zoon en ik in de provincie Noord-Brabant, een prachtig stuk van Nederland met bos afgewisseld met boerderijen, maisvelden en weelderige groene weiden.
Het leven is goed in het Brabantse land, zegt het liedje.

Te koop in mijn Etsy winkeltje.

Last year my son and I were in the province of North Brabant, a lovely part of Holland with woodland interspersed with farms, cornfields and lush green meadows. 
Life is good in Brabant, says the song.

Available in my Etsy shop.

Michael Bailey said...

Beautiful landscape, Judy! It's very similar (flat) countryside around here of course :) I love the way you have reversed the approach with a soft foreground - a truly lovely piece with nice depth :)

Rita Vaselli said...

Dear Judy, a watercolor very well done that transmits a great
sweetness!
The sweetness is just a feature of ALL your work to my eyes!
You are very special person, sweet as your watercolors!

Judy said...

Thank you Sharon, I love the foreground too!

Dankjewel Marja, ik ben er erg tevreden over, mag ook wel eens. :)

Thank you Michael, I appreciate your comment very much! You surely recognize the poplar trees to protect the farm from wind. I was going to paint more detailed grasses in the foreground, but I am glad I stopped in time.

Rita, thank you, you make me blush! It was a nice place with nice people, and I am glad that you can see that in the painting.

Oooooh wat mooi Judy! Ik snap niet dat je niet vaker landschappen doet. Geweldig!

Judy said...

Dankjewel Renate! Ik was wel van plan om meer landschappen te doen, maar het kwam er maar niet van.

John Simlett said...

just lovely ... such delicate colours. This reminds me of the many times over the years we spent driving around Holland. One of my first ever pictures was a Dutch windmill.

Sandra said...

This is so lovely! I like the blooms in the foreground - It gives the feeling of long, swaying grass :0)

Sadami said...

Hi, Judy,
Really lovely, this work relaxes me. Have a wonderful weekend!
Cheers, Sadami

Judy said...

John, thank you! North Brabant and Limburg (Roermond) are the most southern provinces of the Netherlands, so I'm sure you recognize this kind of landscape. Windmills are found further north, where they used to regulate groundwater levels.

Sandra, thanks! I like the blooms too!

Thank you Sadami, that green is very relaxing!

North Brabant looks wonderful, Judy, and you have captured the scene so beautifully!!

Jane said...

A beautiful landscape...very nordic...feels a lot like home for me, gorgeously painted !

Anns Art said...

What a great landscape Judy! Love the soft wash in the foreground too.

Judy said...

Danke vielmals, Maria!

Laura, thank you! I'm glad you like it!

Thank you Kathryn, I'd like to paint more of those green fields, I love them!

Hi Jane, yes I'm sure the landscape in Denmark is similar!

Thank you, Ann!

Tina Moriano said...

Con el miedo que tengo a los verdes!, tu te recreas en esas praderas pintadas tan libremente, como algo natural

Danielle v/d Horst said...

Dit is ook heel dromerig geschilderd ik zie je zo in de wei liggen fijne avond groetjes Danielle

Sonia Aguiar said...

Judy es una paisaje magnífico. Te felicito. ¡Un abrazo!

Tito said...

Hi Judy, this a fantastic landscape, I like everything in it, particularly the magic light! Bellissimo!

Elvi said...

Mi piacciono molto questi lavori un pò evanescenti e pieni di luce. Elvi

Catharina Engberg said...

I like the effect you got there in the foreground. And the soft touch on top of the distant trees behind the house. It looks like the sun is touching the trees. Good work Judy!

jeneen said...

I'm a fan of the foreground, too. It works to show off the background.

Hingehaucht. Leicht und transparent.

Judy said...

Muchas gracias Tina y Sonia, dankjewel Danielle, thank you Catharina and Jeneen, grazie mille Tito e Elvi, danke vielmals Janine!!

Erik van Elven said...

Heel mooi Judy! Mooie balans van zachte en harde overgangen.

Blaga said...

Very beautiful with this wet-in-wet blur in the foreground and just enough detail in the background. Creates a very serene feeling. Life must be good there :) Have a lovely weekend, Judy!

Antonio Hernández said...

Sutil y hermosa acuarela. Felicidades

art by Renske said...

2de poging. Vanmorgen kreeg ik een foutmelding tijdens het plaatsen van een reactie.

Mooi geschilderd Judy. Het komt heel erg zacht over, alsof er iets van mist hangt. Mooie kleuren bij elkaar.

Judy said...

Dankjewel Erik, leuk dat je langskwam!

Thank you Blaga! I can't help working wet, and I am glad it turned out this nice.

Muchas gracias, Antonio!

Dankje Renske! Wat raar dat het eerst niet ging, maar ja, Blogger heeft wel vaker kuren.

I like your landscapes! This one and the latest two are so colorful and atmospheric.
