Finding myself this day in Bergen NH, a Artist colony village, for an evening Art Market. And being in the company of an Italian/American plein-air painter, who wanted so desparately to paint a Dutch windmill. I took him to this location, probably one of the most romantic classical style Dutch settings, for such a subject. With the support of a typically renowned Dutch sky, plenty of sunshine, a cool breeze, and the shade of mature walnut tree, there couldn't have been a better place to have been set up with my easel.
Here is what it looks like in frame.
