One, two, three, four cyclists. 2016


One, two, three, four cyclists. 2016. J.Harms. 29x39cm. Acrylic on paper.

I came across a picture the other day, in one of my old memory cards. Four cyclists leaving Kilmartin, a Highland stop on a tour I took 2 years ago. It was at the time of the Referundum in Scotland, which explains the ‘yes’panel on the lamp post. The bright color jackets caught my eye and the process in which they departed. One after the other.

This is another of my rare attempts in grasping nature through paint. Where I find it easy to decipher the net of lines and colors in urban landscapes, I find it almost impossible in a bushy context. This is my rendering of the quaint corner of a friend’s garden. She used straw to cover her crops of potatoes…

I seldom use maps when wandering around cities. Needless to say I have often lost myself. Around the castle, two hills stand out in Edinburgh, after climbing Arthur’s seat, I decided to go from there to Calton hill. So, keeping that hill in sight, I walked and walked, and found a small path going up. On my left, over the roofs, a labyrinth of streets.

Edinburgh castle has many features which I enjoy painting. An elevated perspective, alcoves, unusual point of views, people wandering, and a layer of rich colors . The view from the castle, which I hope I’ll be painting soon, was extraordinary. This exit, which illustrates the end of my visit, opens on the enormous esplanade right infront of the castle. If you go straight on, it will lead you to the royal mile, another fine street.

On a fine Sunday afternoon, My sister, a friend, and I drove to Pierrefonds with paddleboats in mind. The majestic castle of Pierrefonds, overlooks a beautiful lake. For 4.5 euros one can rent a paddleboat and go for a ride around the lake. There, we spotted herons a plenty, fish wriggling under the yellow water lillies, and ducks of all kinds and colors happily chasing eachother.

At one point the wanderer needs to come down those cloudy heights of his. It’s the dawn of a new day over the milky lake.
