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!

Painting "morning dip", oil on panel 30x20cm. Sold immediately, even with lots of sand in the paint - easel fell over in an unguarded moment. What a rookie mistake...

Off to Noordwijk painting festival!

So I'm all packed and ready to go to Noordwijk painting festival this afternoon. I'll stay there all week, and you're most welcome to visit. See www.schilderfestival.eu for location details. Finished paintings of all 50 participating painters will be hung up in the festival tent immediately and are for sale. We're expecting great weather, so lots of sunny paintings this year!
I'll post the paintings as much as I can on this blog, and certainly on Facebook and Instagram. They will be available online after my return (if not sold off the easel).
