DICK, THIS IS VERY COOL! I'm really into strong verticals and horizontals in the landscape at this time - and this is strong!

I've enjoyed the pieces you posted. This one in particular is very strong and solid.

You have such a great place to paint in the Netherlands. Will you be able to paint outdoors when the weather gets nice and capture the fabulous landscape where you live?

Hello and thanks to every responder,

First of all thanks for comfirming that the composition is allright/strong.
The fact is that I also partly felt that way, but on the other part felt insecure about it and thought it was too simple to be true.
This is obviously where a forum like this works and you realise what it can do for you!

And yes Diane, though I haven't done much plein air yet, I can say from april/may onwards if the wheather allows.
And I happen to live in an region where since a couple of years you will see lots of these tulip fields among the meadows with cattle or sheep.
These fields full of colourfull tulips can however only be seen for six weeks at the most. This is because the flowers will be cut after a few weeks; it is the bulbs the growers are after and they must be sold and exported. The beautifull flowers we see are only a phase in this process.
