Artist's Description

Skûtsjesilen (pronounced skoo-jee-zee-lin)
is a race between 14 traditional sailing ships; it is held in the north of Holland
(in the province of Friesland), at the end of July/ beginning of August.
This race attracts thousands of visitors each year.

This is an other oil impasto.
Since an oil impasto would take up to a year to dry, I first used a modeling paste to texturize the canvas.
Then I painted this oil with big rough bristles (dry brushing technique)
and lots of different palette knives.

I’m proud to announce that “Skûtsjesilen” was featured in the group Dutch Touch 6 days ago (July 31,2008) Thank you guys!!*
