‘Windmills in Westzaan’ Netherlands

An oil painting of three windmills in

‘Windmills in Westzaan’ 

Oil on panel 10″ x 14″

This painting set in late September on an overcast drizzly day is of some of the windmills situated in Westzaan, a town in the Dutch province of North Holland in the municipality of Zaanstad, which is about 8 miles northeast of Haarlem. Sometime ago an exhibition was held from October to January in a gallery near to Amsterdam where I was invited to show. The whole of the exhibition was given over to wildlife paintings where there were about 300 paintings on show.

Windmills in the Netherlands, of which they are plenty, are the most obvious things to paint and my time in Westzaan was spent visiting and recording some of these sights.

I’m partway through another painting of a windmill which I will be posting shortly.

‘River Dove’ Mill Dale’ Derbyshire

Landscape oil painting of cattle watering in the River Dove in Mill Dale Derbyshire

‘River Dove’ Mill Dale Derbyshire 

Oil on canvas 14″ x 20″

Paintings from walks I’ve done.

I did this walk along the River Dove some time ago and at the time was minus my camera. I don’t normally paint from other peoples photography, on this occasion because it evoked the time of the walk and don’t suppose I shall do the Mill Dale walk again I made an exception and put it to canvas, the only difference being I decided to turn the cows round in my painting, I hope he won’t mind!

Comment from Richard Drake. 9 September 2017

This is the picture I commissioned for my dad’s birthday, the picture here doesn’t do it justice, Derek’s work is superb the detail is fantastic and my dad is very happy with it, we had a wonderful trip to Derek’s gallery to pick the picture up, his other work on display is fantastic and worth a visit if you want to check out his work before commissioning a picture or just looking for something for that empty spot on a wall
