the sky, when it wasn't over cast this week, was amazing, super dramatic. just the way Vermeer and the other well known dutch landscape painters experienced it.
the two top images were taken while driving back from amsterdam on the highway. i had booked a private class with CS from amsterdamgentlemen designers and was heading home after a great learning experience & inspiring day. i pulled over into the breakdown lane just to grab some i phone photos. the sky was ON FIRE.
other images: a view into Delft ( vermeers hometown) and the polders ( fields along canal) right near our house in wassenaar. they are always full of grazing sheep, horses and cows and a beautiful deep lush green color.
