Le pédalo blanc. 2016

Le pédalo blanc. 2016. J.Harms. 29x39cm. Acrylic on paper.

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.

Portree is Skye’s main town. It’s a very pretty place. The usual view people remember from Portree are the colorful houses lining the bay. I admit I really liked those little houses but I came across the view I painted while wandering down the city. It was a gloriously sunny day, and over the roofs, I spotted this particular riviera-esque view. I couldn’t quite get over the color of the sea.

When touring Scotland last year, our driver dropped us off at Luss. A picturesque little village on the shores of Loch Lomond. The Pier was by far what inspired me the most about that place. There was no time to go on a boat tour unfortunately.

Wandering on a bridge, the one nearest to the train station. Below, the ground moves. Boats enter the city, the city moves over the water… Strange feeling.

My second O-Kunchi…. Same street, same balcony… A boat crosses the street. The sun is bright… The boat disappears… The sound of drums…
