He who knows how to appreciate colour relationships, the influence of one colour on another, their contrasts and dissonances, is promised an infinitely diverse imagery.

Eye Candy for Today: View of the Hague, and study by Cornelis Springer

View of the Hague, and study by Cornelis Springer
View of the Hague from the Delft Canal by Cornelis Springer, and study for the same.

In the Rijksmuseum; original pages here and here.

In many ways, I like the wonderfully painterly study more than the finished painting, though both are beautiful.

    Thanks for this post Charley, this is an artist new to me so it is a welcome discovery.
    Your point of the study is true too, I love that wet slippery paint in the detail.
