    Impressionism 2010: Wyck in Autumn

    I believe it was two weeks before Christmas. Wyck (pronounciate it as 'Weeek') is the contra city center part across the river Meuse (Maas), the 'opposite site' of Maastricht (d'n euverkant). I caught the late Autumn light on the Oeverwal (Bank Wall), on a Saturday way back in 2004 with my first digicamera. The road is sloping because of the Saint Servaas Bridge which starts at the left side (starting from sign post) and which crosses the river.

    Monet could have painted here 'plein air', looking through his eyelashes picking the right colours to put it on canvas. I'm not Monet, far away. Though I tried to paint like an impressionist fast, afraid that the light changes though using modern materials like my digiphoto and ArtRage and a little Photoshop afterwork: a 50% sepia photo filter. Painted it in 30 minutes to force myself to give the painting a quick paint brush look.

    Enjoy it.

    Pai, I really don't if this is possible or not. I'm not familiair with exchanging filters from Photoshop to ArtRage. There is still much to discover for me...

    Astonishingly successful in what you set out to do, and the time factor of 30 minutes is a double wow. Great job!

    Thanks fellow ArtRagers. I like to paint city sceneries very much because you can see what kind of era a certain painting enlightens (people's hair and clothes fashion, people's behaviour, streetware, brand signs, infrastructure, car types and sometimes even architecture and possible aircraft contrails in the air).
