The Dutch Card Players

I am going to have to do a lot of work tonight! These four friends have been "klaverjassing" for nearly 40 years every Friday night. Nothing comes in their way of fighting it out around our Van Gogh- Potato Eaters table. I am inspired by so many paintings of Pierre Bonnard. we will see if I progress. I have been painting on 5 paintings since 1994. One has been bought by Rob, the fellow with the beard. I keep making the rounds and they keep changing places. I try to get that special light and also the action and tension of the play. We go on until past midnight when they end with some rounds of poker.
