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.

  3. 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 :)

  4. 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!

  5. 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.

  8. 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.

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

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

  11. 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!

  23. 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!

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

  28. 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!

  30. 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.
